With all the info with answers comes more questions
Would love to locate some dearth/burial and birth records
or something...Have to check into that

I'm guessing either Jane is the child of Mary &
David or did possibly Rachel died in Child birth
and also is Nancy E. a daughter of Rachel and David ?
Why then why was she not on earlier census? Maybe
she was either Mary's Child from a previous marriage ?
Maybe a relative's child who moved in to help with The
younger child after Mary died ? pass the tylenol ...

sources: Marilyn Willer , Mike Canter , and also
Thank you all for the great information
