Thanks so much, Sue. It will be interesting to see how the "real" death record compares with Ancestry.com's transcription of the Wisconsin Death Index, 1820-1907:

Here's what that says for for Mary & Nelson:

Name: Mary L F Pell
Death Date: 13 Jan 1883
County: Walworth
Volume: 01
Page #: 0209
Reel: 130
Image: 0573
Index Volume: -
ImageNum: 104071
Sequence #: 295762

Name: Nelson F Pell
Death Date: 16 Jan 1882
County: Walworth
Volume: 01
Page #: 0153
Reel: 130
Image: 0267
Index Volume: -
ImageNum: 104071
Sequence #: 295763

Perhaps Ira's body was never recovered -- if he really drowned in Pell Lake. Would that might explain why a death rec isn't available for him?
