Birth: Mar. 2, 1844
Winnebago County
Illinois, USA
Death: Sep. 3, 1885
Bates County
Missouri, USA

Nathan Chase, my great-grandfather, was born in Illinois, lived in Nebraska and finally in Missouri. He married Nancy Mariah Ramsower in 1869 and they had three children: James William, Ida Jane, and George Evan. Mariah died after the birth of George, and Nathan married Sarah Dulcina White in 1877; they had four children, all of whom predeceased her. He was killed by lightening as he drove a team and wagon home from town. Nathan and Mariah are buried in Radford Cemetery, Bates Co., Missouri. Sarah Dulcina married Alexander Stark and had two more children; she died in Iowa.

His obituary says: "The stroke showed that it had hit him in the top of the head of his hat, which was picked up the next morning on the road. . . His mules were unharmed and after he was killed hauled him home and stopped at the gate, where he was found by his family about sun up. Mr. Chase was a good man and kind neighbor and left a wife and six children to mourn his unfortunate death, which is a fearful warning that man knoweth not the hour."
