Rapids City, Illinois Historical Events

Death of Milton B. Chase
Rapids City Cemetery
I recently discovered a Civil War Vet and my great-Great Grandfather, Milton B Chase, who served in Iowa, Illinois and Pennsylvania where he was from Washington Co. PA
He was married to Margaret Edith Franks in 1855 in LeClaire, Iowa, Scott Co., Iowa, just across the river from Rapids City, Illinois. They had 5 children and there are still relatives in the area both in Illinois as well as Iowa.

Margaret E Chase remarried at least twice and may be in the same cemetery, but do not know for certain. I know she was married to George B Nicholson and a Mr. Vincent.
Her children are:
James Morgan Chase
Francis Marion Chase
Milton Parker Chase
Maggie Chase
Jennie Chase
