MRS. NANCY KLINE
By Special Correspondent.
CLAY CITY, May 31. – Mrs. Nancy Kline died at Lafayette yesterday at a private sanitarium of brain affection, aged 46 years. Her remains were brought here last night and taken to the home of her mother, Mrs. Elizabeth Schiele. The funeral services were conducted at the home Wednesday morning, and burial at Greenwell cemetery. She leaves six children, Mrs. Ed Fouts and Roy Walker, of Lafayette, and, and four children by the name of Kline.
Nancy has been a recent subject of another blog post (Thriller Thursday – Attempted Murder and Suicide). While she survived the murder attempt when she was 18, she did not live a long life. Nancy was married twice. She outlived her first husband, Theodore Walker. Her second marriage to Stephen Kline appears to have been a rocky one. They separated after several years of marriage and four children. Nancy moved with her children to Lafayette in the late 1910s. Stephen appears to have fought the separation and began proceedings to convict his wife of insanity. Nancy died very soon thereafter.
Nancy married Theodore Walker on 5 June 1888 in Clay County, Indiana. They had two known children: Charles Roy Walker (1889-1936) and Mae (Walker) Fouts (1891-1972). There may have been a third child.
She married second, Stephen M. Kline on 27 August 1896 in Clay County, Indiana. They had four children: Forrest S. Kline (1897?-1976), Inez (Kline) Ley (1899-1985), Paul H. Kline (1901-1994), and Russell R. Kline (1904-1927).
Special thanks are in order to Karen Brand for providing me with copies of the court summons and Jane Riley for the pictures of Nancy and her daughter Mae and a copy of Nancy’s obituary.
