Biography of Zina Goldthwait Chase

Zina Goldthwait Chase late of Cambridge, son of Alden and Abigail (Chase) Chase, was born in Cambridge, August 9, 1830. His educational advantages were derived from the common schools and he steadily followed farming as an occupation, at the same time dealing largely in cattle. Mr. Chase twice enlisted in the ranks of his country’s defenders and in his first attempt was advanced to the grade of orderly sergeant [p.71] of Co. H, 2d Regt. Vt. Vols., but unfortunately he was mustered out for disability.

After holding many minor positions of trust in the town, he was elected by a strong Republican majority to the state Legislature in the fall of 1886, which position he filled with credit to himself and satisfaction to his constituents. He was a member of the Masonic order, and was united in marriage, August 2, 1856, to Jane H., daughter of Samuel and Hannah Montague. One child, Hollis M. Chase, has blessed their union.
