Chase Inscriptions in Seabrook Burial Grounds, Excerpt from The Chase Chronicle, Volume 5, Number 2, April, 1914.
It may be well to preserve in the Chase Chronicle such records or other original documents relating to the Chase family, as may come to hand from time to time, so that this miscellaneous and fragmentary material may be available for any historian of the family who may in the future undertake to write a connected history and genealogy of the Chases.
One of the original homes of the Chases in America was Hampton, N. H. In the summer of 1913, I examined for another purpose the stones in the old graveyard, in Seabrook (which was formerly a part of Hampton), and also in a more modern graveyard in the same town. Both are still used; in the older are to be found stones with inscriptions dated far back in the eighteenth century. While making this examination I transcribed all the inscriptions containing the name Chase, but was not very careful to indicate the division by lines.
Such as it is, the transcript is here given.
Names in this online transcription include Chase, Johnson, Locke.
