Joseph Chase Allen
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1833
Death: Dec. 5, 1887

Although Joseph's middle name was "Chase" he was not related in any way to the Chase family of Martha's Vineyard. It was told to me by Joseph's grandson, also named Joseph Chase Allen, that the family lived the next farm over to the Chase family. The two men became fast friends and as close as brothers. Joseph's father, Benjamin, therefore gave his first son the middle name of Chase in honor of his friend.
