Seeking information on the family of Ruby CHASE andJames BROWN.Ruby Chase was the daughter of Newton Asbury Chase andCarrie Elsie LESLIE.Ruby was born about 1902 in Minnesota or Colorado and apparently married James Brown sometime in the 1920s.
Ruby Chase is a 3 X great granddaughter of Alexander NEGLEY (1734-1809) of Pittsburgh, PA and would have been my 4th cousin.I am working on a project to identify the descendants of Alexander Negley.
Ruby and James had three daughters: Arvilla Brown, b. 1926 (m. Ben FRY);Lois Brown, b. 1927;and Beverly Brown, b. 1929 (m. Neal JACKSON).
I have been unable to identify either Ben Fry or Neal Jackson in the U.S. Census.
I have been unable to identify the family in the 1930 census, but Ruby Chase was listed with her parents in Duele Co., Neb. In the 1910 and 1920 census.A more detailed report on Ruby and her family is shown below.
Willing to share information.
