1.  Marriage Record:

2.  1850 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  Nathan J. CHASE (æ 29, b. NY) is unmarried and living in the Town of Albion, Oswego Co., NY (p. 145A), with the CLARK family.

3.  1860 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #42 of 59):  Sand Point P.O., Albion, Oswego Co., NY, Roll M653_838, p. 204, PN 42, 330/340, enumerated 28 Jun 1860, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1860 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
Nathan J Chase 38 M   Lumberman 2340 450 New York
Elisa J    " 24 F         "
Clara E    "  1 F         "
Rosalia    "  8 F         "
Ellen M    " 2/12 F         "
Wm A Potter 31 M   Sawyer     Vermont
Ellen M  " 24 F         NY
The ordering of the children makes this record difficult to interpret.  It seems likely Rosalia is Nathan's daughter from a prior marriage.  It also seems likely that Ellen M. POTTER is Nathan's sister.

4a.  1870 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #18 of 32):  Ringgold P.O., Ringgold Dist., Catoosa Co., GA, Roll 140 (Book 1), p. 274B, PN 64, 456/459, enumerated 25 Jul 1870, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1870 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):

Laura Jane "Jennie" PAGE is Narcissa's daughter from her prior marriage.  It's curious that Ellen chose to move with her father to Georgia, rather than staying with her mother in New York (see next record).  One would have thought Rosalia/Rosa would have been the one to move with her father, rather than stay in New York with her stepmother.

4b.  1870 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #16 of 101):  Pulaski P.O., Town of Richland, Oswego Co., NY, Roll, p. 401B, PN 16, 134/133, enumerated 20 Jun 1870, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1870 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):

This is one of those records where some idiot at NARA scribbled numbers over the names of the heads-of-households; however, William's surname clearly begins "Ch," so it's hard to figure why he was indexed "Wise."  Narcissa has shaved a few years off her age.  Narcissa indicates she has had six children, but we've identified only four, one of the deceased ones being her daughter, Laura Jane (PAGE) STROUP.

.  Messages posted to the CHASE-L mailing list (archives at RootsWeb.com):  a message there indicates Nathan married a Jane E. ABBOTT "second," after marrying Narcissa.  But we know Narcissa outlived Nathan, so is "Jane E." actually "Elisa Jane"?
