Biography of William H. Chase
Bristol County, MA Biographies

Chase, William Henry, contractor and builder, was born in North Dartmouth, Mass., July 26, 1848, a son of Noble M. and Mercy (Bowman) Chase. His early education was received in the public schools and at the close of school days went to New Bedford for a short time to learn the carpenter's trade. Not liking New Bedford he went to Fall River, where he remained five years and then came to Taunton about 1870, and went to work for S. B. Simmons, and remained with him five years. He then engaged with Samuel Miller making patterns and after spending some time with Miller and the Weir Stove Co. he started pattern making for himself in 1882; but this did not prove satisfactory and he went back to his old trade of building and general jobbing in wood, in which he has been very successful. October 28, 1872, he married Henrietta Weston Smith of East Machias, Me., and they have two sons: Henry Curtis, born July 31, 1876. and Frederick Maxim, born June 25, 1878.
