    DEATH: Eau Claire Press, Eau Claire, Wi. - 16 Jan 1873
    OBITUARY: JONATHAN CHASE - The funeral of the old patriarch Chase took part in the Lake Street Methodist Episcopal Church at two o'clock yesterday, [15 Jan 1873], and was very largely attended by the citizens, of whom a great many followed the body to its resting place. The old man was known to almost everybody in Eau Claire, and while his personal helplessness had long appealed to their sympathy, his unwelcomed intellect, and memory reaching back almost to the foundation of the Republic, made him a really interesting acquaintance, though his education was limited and he was very poor. He was born in the state of New York in 1789 and retained a very clear recollection of the earliest events of our history since the Revolution. For the last four years, he lived alone in a small house built for him by some of his numerous allies, where he was daily visited by the children, and though during his last week or so on earth, he had consented to take refuge from the extreme weather with a son, who recently came to settle in Eau Claire, it appears that he returned to his shanty on Sunday night and died there as he had lived. His descendants to the fourth generation are very numerous and live in all parts of Eau Claire and the adjoining counties.
