I have been researching David and Emily Chance and their daughter Mary Jane Chance. Mary Jane was born in Milam Co., in 1858. She married Winston Wade/Waid abt 1879-1880 and moved to Ellis Co. She had two children, Annie Wade b. 1882 and Houston Wade b. 1884. After the 1880 federal census, Mary Jane and Winston disappear from the record. Annie and Houston were raised primarily by Emily Chance in Milam Co. Annie married Eulie Wistus Polk in Milam Co. in 1898. If anyone has any information related to this, please contact me here or at
