William Nelson


Obituary




From the Adams County Press, Saturday March 16, 1912, Page 4

William Nelson died at his home in Strongs Prairie, on March 4th, aged 
about 27 years. 

Deceased was the fourth child of Mr. and Mrs. Louis Nelson, and had 
been suffering for the past two years with rheumatism and tuberculosis. 
During that time he had been in a sanitarium in Michigan, and had 
travelled in the south in hopes of regaining his health all of which 
was of no avail. 

He was a young man of strong Christian character, well known and 
esteemed by the people of his town, who most deeply sympathize with 
the family in his untimely demise. 

Funeral services were conducted at the home and in the United Lutheran 
church on March 9th, by Rev. Hagen of Strongs Prairie, who spoke in 
Norwegian, and Rev. Deans of this place, who spoke in English. 

The sorrowing parents and relatives have the sympathy of all in their 
bereavement.
