of Campton and Plymouth. He then engaged as



clerk for his brother, Warren G. Chase, in the
meat and grocery business, at Plymouth. At the
end of three years, finding the need of an out-door
life, he went to carpentering at which he worked
for a year. From this it was an easy transition to
the lumber business. The brothers, Warren G. and
Irving H. Chase, bought a small timber tract on
the Ellsworth branch of the Pemigewasset river,
where they built a waterpower sawmill, which they
conducted for thirteen years. They finally accu-
mulated about seven thousand acres of timber land,
and in 1894 they sold the property to George B.
James, of Boston. The Chase brothers operated
portable sawmills for two years and in 1898 built
a small mill on the site of their present property
in Plymouth. This was burned out at the end of
a year, but they immediately rebuilt on a much
larger scale, and are now conducting an extensive
business. The motive power is a stationary en-
gine of two hundred and fifty horse power, and
the mill in one day will turn out more lumber than
the early mills could have produced in a year.
The pine logs are drawn by team from Plymouth
and the adjoining towns, while those from re-
mote points are shipped by rail. The firm gives
employment to fifty and sometimes eighty men, and
daily produces thirty thousand feet of dressed
lumber. The greater part is recut and sold for
packing cases. The firm also owns a sawmill on
the Connecticut river at North Thetford, Vermont,
which they purchased in 1901 from the citizens'
Bank of St. Johnsbury, Vermont. They also own
and run three portable sawmills which are oper-
ating in different parts of New Hampshire and
Vermont. Besides his regular business, Mr. Chase
also deals quite extensively in real estate. He is a
Republican in politics, and a member of Plymouth
Lodge, No. 66, Independent Order of Odd Fel-
lows. He is a trustee of the Universalist Church
in Plymouth. On December 7, 1881, Irving H.
Chase married Minnie Elliott, daughter of Ephraim
and Lucy (Broad) Elliott, who was born in Thorn-
ton. New Hampshire, April 7, 1862. They had two
