I am looking for info regarding the marriage (and existence after) of Kate J.Reeves to Ambrose H. Norris in Douglas, NE 13 Sep 1883. Found on LDS and assume this means Douglas County. The 1880 Douglas Co., Saratoga Twp. census identifies William REEVES with wife Jane and dau Katie J., age 17. This may be the bride's parents.

Any details will help me either confirm or dismiss this event in my search for Ambrose Norris who was last documented in Denton Co., TX 1880 census, age 26, living with his widowed father, John Norris. A brother, Dr. Urban Hartman Norris, is known to have been in Cass Co., NE during the same time period. I have extensive data on this family line, but am missing anything on Ambrose. I have been unable to locate him in the 1900 and later census although another unconfirmed LDS entry by a distant relative says Ambrose Norris died in 1922.

Please advise.
