George D. Chase
George D. Chase died very suddenly at his home at 58 Front street at six o'clock last evening from an attack of heart trouble. He was conversing with two of his sons when he fell from the chair in which he was seated. Mr. Chase was born in Burke, N.Y., 74 years ago. He came to Essex to live when a boy and had been a resident of Burlington for more than 50 years. He was for about 50 years employed by the Central Vermont railroad, having been engineer for 43 years on the shuttle train which runs between this city and Essex Junction. He retired about five years ago. Mr. Chase was a member of Stannard Post, G. A. R.
Besides his wife, who was Miss Sabra Minckler, Mr. Chase is survived by eight children and several grandchildren. The children are Mrs. George A. Kinney of Shelburne, Frank W Chase of Palmer, Mass., Mrs. Guy A. Lamson of Williston, Mrs. Charles E. Thompson, Mrs. E. O. Robinson, Edwin H. Chase, Harry W. Chase and Roy W. Chase of this city.
The funeral will be held from the late home of the deceased on Front street at two o'clock Tuesday afternoon, with interment in the family lot at Lake View cemetery.
