I am interested in John Nelson Chesterson and wife Jennie Commer Graft Chesterson. She died in 1932 but I don't know where, he died in February 1933.
J.N. was the son of George Washington Chesterson and Louisa Fender. He was born in Illinois on September 22, 1851. He and wife Jennie were living in Madison, Butler Co, Ohio in 1930 (census information). His obit is in the Crawfordsville Journal (Crawfordsville, Montgomery Co, Indiana) but I don't have a copy - someone promised to look it up for me but I haven't heard back from her yet.
It appears that J.N. was maried before, to Martha E. Brocies. I have no information on her other than her name. He might have been married briefly to a Sarah J. Creque (married and divorced in 1870).
I have seen your site (which in fact gave me some useful info on the family), but do you happen to have any information on John Nelson Chesters and his marriages that is not there?
