(Tried to check for
obituary of Cyrus Chase in newspaper on microfilm at Northeast Georgia Regional
Library in Clarkesville, Georgia. The microfilm does NOT include issues from
the relevant dates. Microfilm Reel 1 includes an incomplete run of Clarkesville
Advertiser 1893, 1898-1911; "scattered issues, 1926-1928"; Tri-County
Advertiser, March 1913-1918.)
(Also tried to find a
death record for Cyrus Chase at Habersham County Office of Probate Judge. They
do not have any death records before 1918, when the State of Georgia required
that they be kept. The City of Cornelia, Georgia does not keep any vital
records; in Georgia, it is the responsibility of the county governments to keep
vital records. Found no marriage records for Chases in the time frame in which
we're interested, in the marriage indexes kept at the Office of Probate Judge.)

(Went to East View
Cemetery in Mt. Airy, Habersham County, Georgia on May 16, 2000. Found no grave
markers for Cyrus Chase or members of his family. Inquired at the Mt. Airy Town
Office: they have no record of burials in East View Cemetery; the clerk says
there may be a map of the lots in existence, but the person who had it is sick
and she is trying to get hold of him because she believes he just sold a row of
lots there "that do not exist".)
