Mary is the daughter of Nelson and Myra Chase. Mary was two years old when her mother died in Afton, MN. Father Nelson then moved to Hastings to open a Boot and Shoe making business bringing Mary and their son Charles with. It was here that Nelson married for a second time. Sadly, five year old Mary fell into the Mississippi River at the waterfront watching a steamboat come into town. Her body was not recovered for two weeks time but was identified by the dress that she was wearing when she surfaced downstream from the railroad bridge. Nelson buried Mary along side of her mother in Afton at Evergreen Cemetery. When Nelson (Nulan) Chase died in 1898 his second wife Susan had Mary and Elmyra interred at Hastings, creating a permanent family plot for the Chase's.
