I found Kate and her son in several census married to Benjamin Nash as far back as 1900. In the 1940 census, Earl lived in Ferndale, Oakland Co, Michigan.
My intent is to contact some one in the Nash family who may have information regarding Kate's maiden name. A letter written to my mother from Earl Nash in 1960 leads me to believe Kate's maiden name was Ellsworth, but I would like to have it confirmed. My grandfather's name was Frank Ellsworth (b. 1880 in Mi., d. 1921 in Ky.). According to the letter, he may have been Kate's brother. I can find no census record for Frank and none for Kate prior to 1900.
