After a brave struggle which had continued through many months, Chase Webb, prominent in business and political circles of Waukegan, for thirty years, passed away at his home Friday night. Mr. Webb had long been a sufferer from stomach trouble, the direct cause of his demise.
In his death, that community has lost one of its strongest men. As a business man, he established the Webb & Son coal business which is one of the leading firms of the city. He was a force in politics and from 1886 to 1900 held the office of sheriff. The six years following he was chief of police of Waukegan. His residence in that city dates from the time of his election as sheriff. At that time he lived in Antioch.
The passing of Mr. Webb means the reducing of the ranks of the G. A. R., by another of its respected members. From 1862 until the close of the war, he served as one of Co. C, 96th Ill., Vol., enlisting from Antioch and serving with distinction.
Chase Webb was born in Ithaca, N. Y., March 26, 1843 but practically all of his life had lived in that community, the family moving to Antioch when he was 1 year old. There he was reared and when a youth of 19 entered the army. Following his return from the war, he married Miss Jannette Minto of Antioch, who passed away in February, 1889. Later, Mr. Webb was united in marriage with Mrs. Mary Taylor, who survives him.
Three sons, David T., Frank A, and Edgar C. Webb and one daughter, Mrs. Margaret Yager mourn his passing. Mrs. R. L. Smart, another daughter passed away five years ago. One brother A. D. Webb of Waukegan and Mrs. Helen Savage of Antioch outlived their relative.

The many friends of Mr. H. P. Miller were surprised and shocked beyond measure when word was received at his home town Lake Villa that he had very suddenly passed away while on a visit to his children in Waukegan.
Mr. Miller had been in his usual health and with his wife had gone to that city Tuesday to spend the week with their children there. On Wednesday he had been to Milwaukee and on Thursday he and his wife were ready to go from the home of their daughter, Mrs. Murrie to the home of their son Jay, when he suddenly complained of faintness and passed away before medical aid could be summoned.
The deceased was born at Niles Centre, Ill., May 28, 1837, and died at Waukegan, Aug. 24, 1916, at the age of 79 years, 2 months and 27 days.
At the age of six years he with his parents came to Lake County and settled at Sand Lake and there the remainder of his life with the exception of the last twelve years was spent. On the 29th day of October, 1868 he was united in marriage to Margaret King, who survives him,. Twelve years ago the elderly couple gave up active work and moved to Lake Villa, which has since been their home.
He was devoted member of Antioch lodge A. F. and A. M., having joined the order in the year of 1866. He was also a life member of Waukegan chapter No 41. R. A. M.
He is survived by his widow and five children, Mrs. Herbert Murrie, Wm., Fred, Jay and Carl Miller, also two sisters, Mrs. R. C. Green of Waukegan and Mrs. C. M. Cribb of Lake Villa.
The funeral was held at the M. E. church here Sunday, Rev. Hutchinson officiating and the Masons having charge at the grave. We extend our sympathy to the bereaved family.-Lake Villa Correspondent
