W.J. CHASE and his wife, Nancy Ann LORTON Chase lived in Salem, NE btw 1876 and 1888.Nancy is buried in Maple Cemetery (passed by the cemetery in May/2005 and didn't know she was there).By chance, could you look to see if you can find her obituary.DOD was 4/16/1879.Also, in 1870 Census, they had a daughter named Eliza A b. 1866. She does not appear in the 1880 Census for Salem, Richardson Co., where W.J. is listed as a widower.Nancy died of scarlet fever along with her three week old son, Joseph Edward.Nancy was the daughter of J.D. Lorton of Verdon.I have his obituary published in 1891.I will be glad to pay for time and copies.thx.
