Rockford Morning Star | Oct. 25, 1918

Henry B. Chase, well known and respected citizen of Winnebago county for over a half century, succumbed to the infirmities incident to advanced age yesterday morning at 10:20 o'clock at St. Anthony hospital, where he had been cared for the past two years. He had suffered a stroke on Thursday of last week, becoming weaker until his death. He maintained excellent vitality until about three years ago, retaining all his faculties and an interest in events of the day.

Mr. Chase was born in Loudon, NH, March 14, 1829, and in 1858 came to Cherry Valley, after his marriage in Solon, Ohio to Miss Katherine S. Hannaford of Solon, October 14, 1857. He engaged in farming in Winnebago county and in 1891 he retired and removed to Rockford, making his home at 321 North Third street. Mrs. Chase predeceased him in 1905. Mr. Chase was a personal friend of the late President Garfield. He was active in the affairs of the First Congregational church before its absorption, and was an ardent Sunday school worker. He was a gentleman of a distinctly pleasing and kindly nature which endeared him to all who made his acquaintance.

He is survived by three sons: Frank H. Chase of River Forest, Ill; Harry H. Chase of Colorado Springs, and Arthur T. Chase of East State street, and a daughter, Mrs. F.E. Rosecrance of North Prospect street. Three sons predeceased him. He also leaves seventeen grandchildren among whom are Dell and Henry Chase of Rockford and three great-grandchildren.

Funeral services will be held Saturday afternoon at 3:30 o'clock at the Rosecrance home, 142 North Prospect street. Rev. E.G. Shutz will officiate and burial will be in Cedar Bluff cemetery.
