Cace, Nelson, lawyer and writer, was born in Wyoming county, Pa., April 22, 1845. When he was about a year old his parents removed to Lee county, Ill., where he grew to manhood. In 1866 he graduated at the Illinois State Normal School, and after teaching one year he entered the law department of the University of Michigan, where he graduated in 1869. He then came to Kansas and located at Oswego, where he began the practice of law. He was twice appointed probate judge of Labette county by Gov.
