Hello Dorothy
Thank you for the information. Caroline Elizabeth Burns b. May 8, 1885 Westford d. June 2 1923 at Burlington, VT of peritonitis following a c-section. She married Jan 1 1907 to Tyler Chase Macomber. I learned that he was named for a farmer named Tyler Chase that his father had been a laborer for when Uncle Chase was born on Sept 20 1875.

I have found records for 4 children, the first 3 stillborn, male, May 30 1908, male Aug 23 1909, female Jan 8, 1911 and then Harold born May 26 and died May 1923. He had been born 8 weeks prematurely. I didn't know of one living to a year old.

In the 1925 Cambridge directory he is called T Chase Macomber while in 1930 his name is given in the census as Tyler. In the early 1930s Chase left Cambridge and settled in E. Fairfield where he remarried to my grandfather's younger sister Mary Margaret Corcoran on 15 Jun 1932.

He was at Pleasantview Cemetery in Cambridge with his first wife.

Uncle Chase died Dec. 30, 1958 and was buried with Carrie at Pleasant View Cemetery in Cambridge.

My mother told me that he had kept a chest that he told Mary never to open. After his death she opened it and found baby clothes made for the children he lost.

I know that your grandmother was Jennie Chase and wonder if he was related to the Tyler Chase that Uncle Chase was named for.

Thanks again for your response.
