Edward MILTON, Daniel & Dorcas WIGSTEAD, Austin Twp.

Classification: Query
I'm looking for information on Edward MILTON, who is shown in the 1900 census of Austin Twp, Lander Co, Nevada. He is living with his daughter and son-in-law, Dorcas and Daniel WIGSTEAD/WEGSTEAD.

Edward is 68 years old in that census (b. about 1831 in Nova Scotia, Canada), and does not appear in the 1910 census, so I suspect he died in the interim. Any clue as to where & when would be much appreciated!

I'm also looking for information on Daniel & Dorcas WIGSTEAD. He was born 1862 in England - he is shown as "M.E. Minister" in the census. Dorcas MILTON WIGSTEAD was born 1863 in Maine. Daniel apparently died between 1910 and 1920. Dorcas is still in Nevada in 1920, but not in 1930. She either died between those dates or, possibly, moved to California - I found a Dora Wigstead that might be her in Berkeley in 1930.

Any help would be much appreciated - and I'd be happy to share what I have on the Miltons.
