Chris, I don't know if this has any bearing on your search but I will share what little I have. My husbands grandparents were Robert Chase and Edna Mae Hunter Aldrich. They lived in Long Beach, CA and Robert died around 1936 or 1937 of a heart attack at age 39. Edna remarried a Mr. Black (first name unkown at this time) He was related to Charles Alden Black who was a decendant of John Alden of the Mayflower and the Cherokee Indian chief Oconostota. I am attempting to research the Aldrich line and have minimal info. Robert Chase was apparantly related to a Mayflower decendant. Good luck in your search.
