[NI086484] Sometime after William & Mariah m they moved to Coalport, located in Clearfield Co., Pa. The Chase Family then moved to Johnstown, Cambria Co., Pa between 1894-1899. William worked for the city of Johnstown for a time. He also worked as a stonemason & as a butcher for Hahn's Meat Packing, Johnstown, Pa & would bring home organ meats, (kidneys, brains & liver) Mariah would soak them over night & then peel the skin off before she cooked them. It seems that the English are fond of organ meats. Most of the Chase chldn lived in & around the Johnstown area. William's son George was working at the steel mill & had taken his lunch break. As he was eating he was not aware that there was a gas leak & he d as a result of the leak he is bur beside his Gfather, George William Chase, in the Lyleville Cem. John worked on the PA RR & d as a result of an accident on the RR. Joseph lived most of his adult life in Duquesne, PA & worked in the steel mills there. James & Preston worked at the Bethlehem Steel Mills, & Frank worked at the National Radiator Co. Leroy (Lee) was a career Navy man who serv as a Pharmacist mate. After Leroy retired from the Navy he lived in Reading, PA & took his parent's to live with him for a time. Lee adopted 2 of his sis Myra's chldn: Bessie & Beatrice. Sometime in the '50s he moved to Manchester, NH. Ada Belle became w/o Blair Beers & lived in Coalport until the time of her death. Alice, along with her sis', Maggie, Dora, Lila & Myra remained in Johnstown & m men who worked at the Bethlehem Steel Mills. Emma also remained in Johnstown, but her husb did not work in the steel mills, he was a photographer & played the violin. As most women of their generation, each of these women knew the challenges of raising chldn & keeping house in a time of little ease or leisure. If they did any work outside the home it was as a midwife, helping other women deliver their chldn. William was described as a true Englishman, a real "Johnny Bull", if he liked you, he liked you & if he didn't, he didn't. He was very good to his gchldn, but was very strict. Mariah was described as the sweetest lady in the world. She was a wonderful seamstress & made beautiful things, & also made clothes for her gchldn. Her sewing ability did not stop with making clothes, but she also stitched many fine quilts. Like many women in her day, she was a good cook & excellent baker. They worked very hard to care for their families. Mariah was of German descent & liked to sing hymns as she worked, believed that helped to ease the burden of her many tasks. William was living with his daug Alice Mowery & her husb John at the time of his death. 2 days before his death, his 7 yr old gdaug, Betty Mowery was murdered. Harry Starchok, 28 yrs old & described by the Trib as a fiend in human form, savagely beat her to death & hid her body in his attic. Mr. Starchok's 5 yr old son broke the case, by testifying that his dad was with Betty in a bedroom of their home. He was never told of the fate of his little gdaug. On the morn of Mar 19 1931 William Chase d of heart trouble. He was laid to rest in the Sandyvale Cem beside his wife Mariah who preceded him in death Nov 15 1924. It is said that when the Chase Family had a funeral "wake" it was more like a party - they loved to laugh.
