The IGI at familysearch.org has a Chrissie Dorothy Wrentzler, born 31 Jan 1883 married to Charles Chambers Craig on Jan 1, 1901. She died 20 May 1912. He died 3 July 1948. Another entry in the IGI also shows Charles Chambers Craig as born 22 Jan 1869 in Clarion County, PA, died 31 July 1948. He is listed as the son of Alexander Craig and Ida Jane Elliott.
Oddly this couple is listed in the 1910 census twice as all the names are the same. One lists Charles C. Craig in Roosevelt, Craig Co., NE and C. C. Craig in Ford, Scotts Bluff Co., NE. for there to have been two families almost identical would be one BIG coincidence. The only real difference is where Chrissie's parents were born.
The 1885 Nebraska census on Ancestry is just an index. It is not the census record itself.
The 1890 Civil War census shows Ida Jane, widow of Alexander Craig, living in Fairview, Madison Co., NE. He served in Co. B, 103 PA Inf.
Ida Jane might be the Ida J. Craig who is listed in the 1900 census with Wm. C. Craig living in Burnett, NE.
Some of these records you can look at for free at labs.familysearch.org and Ancestry.com. For those you cannot check with your local libraries to see if they have Ancestry.com or Heritage Quest.
