Dear Kari,
You had some information on George W Fuston and his siblings under Fuson, Their father was buried under the name of Fuston.. Are you anyway related to them? Nancy Catherine James is my gg grandfather's sister. Nancy was born in Scioto Oh, not Iowa. I have not found her death and think there is some mix up. Do you know if she remarried? According to William Carroll Fuston's draft card he was born 26th,not 16th,but the 2 is fading out. His last name is Fuston on card also. Info of Arnetta has same death date as Nancy, but in Buchanan, Mo., I would like to hear from you.
Respectfully yours, Betty Jackson Campbell

Subject: thank you

Glad you answered.. Actually the marriage of Daniel James Sr and Ruth,her name is spelled Nicoles. Of course marriage records in those days were spelled by whoever took info. Most people did not know how to read or write and probably even spell the names. and did mostly by sound. Nicholas we used,but all families seem to come up Nichols,so it might have been changed to Nichols.We can not find who her parents were. Also Nancy is my great grandfather's sister and my great great grandfather's daughter. Nancy parents are Daniel James and Ruth
Nicholas. you will find them in 1850 census of Scioto Co, Oh. Niles township. On her fathers probate she is listed as Nancy C Fuston., however we have not found when he and Ruth died except sometime before 1880. I am 78 years old and my sister and I have been doing family searching for over 20 years or more. Have not been able to find if Nancy married a second time. John Fuston was old enough to be her grandfather, They probably were neighbors or maybe a friend of her father's . John died age 85, Dec 31, 1877 in Leon Decatur,Ia. and as John Fuston Vet of 1812 war Tennessee ; row 11 , I think in the Palestine Cemetery, Decatur Co. I do not live in Ia, although born there, I live at present in Mojave, CA. I have family that lives in
Houston and San Antonio .Hope this helps. One census of which I do not remember which one,but seem to be in Mo. Arnetta Fuston was the census taker.. I am not so sure she married in 1883. Something that needs researched. Take care and keep in touch. Thanks again for answering,

From The Virginia-Ohio Fusons; Revised 1979 by Sylvia C Fuson Ferguson pub. by Unigraphic, Inc. (book has 2 sections; 1st section copyrighted 1939, 2nd section copyrighted 1979) page 348 John Fuson "m/2) 4 Aug, 1865, Decatur Co., Iowa, Nancy Catherine James, b. 26 Sept, 1847; d. 3 July, 1927, Buchanan Co., Mo. " On the outside of one of my oldest folders is written "Nancy C. married Absalom Clark in 1884"--unfortunately, there is no source listed for this information. Maybe it will at least give you a name to check out. Also, my oldest file comments that the surname was spelled Fuston on the stone at the Palestine cemetery because that was the name used on John's Civil War pension papers. Since one daughter married Edwin Clark & died in St. Joseph, Buchanan Co., MO, could some of these dates have been confused?? The 1880 census of Decatur Co., IA does list Nancy C.'s birthplace as Ohio and both of her parents as born in VA.
Wesley Chapel and the adjoining cemetery are located in section 17 of Washington Township in the northwestern portion of Harrison County. From Bethany, go five miles west on Highway 136 to Route D and turn right (north). Go north on Route D twelve miles to the "T" intersection with Route M. Turn left (west)on Route M and go through the small village of Washington Center. The church and cemetery are on Route M, less than a mile west of Washington Center. Although the church and cemetery are still in use and are well maintained, several stones are now worn and unreadable, and some graves are now unmarked. This survey was conducted by Phil & Kathi Stewart on September 30, 2003.

> Did you mean that the death date is an accident, or that were they all three in an accident?? The cemetery records for Wesley Chapel Cemetery say they all died the same day and assume they got it from the tombstones but not sure. I did not find Nancy on the 1920 census so can't confirm.
