Taken from WPA Transcripts--Outstanding Historical Personalities
Thomas B. CHASE was born in Florida, November 29, 1843. He was the youngest child of George E. and Elizabeth (FLOWER) CHASE. His education was obtained in New Orleans and he clerked for a time, prior to the war.
In 1862, he enlisted in the Crescent Regiment and gave two years of service. He was wounded in the battle of Shiloh.
Chase came to Shreveport and worked as a bookkeeper for 17 years. He was employed by the firm of Hicks & Howell. He afterwards entered the brokerage and insurance business in Shreveport, Louisiana. He was an active member of many of the city's business and fraternal organizations.
He was married in 1868 to Miss Helen CLINE of Mississippi. He lived the remainder of is life in Shreveport.
He needs no slab of marble, with its white and ghastly head. To tell travelers in the Valley, the virtues of the dead; Let the lily be his tombstone, and the dew drop, pure and bright, the epitaph that angels write in the stillness of the night.
