Obituary ~ Lyman Bradley Chase
June 30, 1811 ~ December 04, 1892
Decatur County Journal
Leon, Decatur County, Iowa
December 29, 1892
The death of an old settler and neighbor on Gospel Ridge, MR. L.B. CHASE of Weldon was received here on Saturday. MR. CHASE was born in 1811 and has a brother living who was born in 1807. He and the good wife [Elizabet M. (MEAD) CHASE] were married in 1833.
The merry holiday time is here but every one will remember those whose homes are shrouded in darkness. "To them it seems that joy can never again cross their thresholds". Our friends languish on beds of pain but when their lives are full of years and homes we calmly submit to One who knows best.
[Interment was made at Garden Grove Cemetery, Garden Grove, Iowa.]
