Birth: 1862
Ohio, USA
Death: Feb. 9, 1895
Chicago
Cook County
Illinois, USA

Nellie Williams was my great grandmother on my grandfather's side. She died long before I was born so I never knew her or even what she looked like. If anyone lives near this cemetery, I would like a photo of her stone please.

file notes: e-mail from Anne K
She died 2/09/1895, according to her death certificate (which I cannot find!), at Cook County Insane Asylum. She was buried at Oak Woods cemetery, where her next of kin was listed as "LA" (Block) There is also a burial plot listed, but no-one else with her there. That was all the info I was able to get. I called the NARA archives at Northeastern Illinois University for the search, her cert is listed online in the pre-1916 death database. Anne

I just checked that database again today 5/21/09) and her death record is no longer in it.

August 14, 2012: I can't seem to find her death record.
Anne found it and sent to me but now I can't find it. 11/9/15

I'm not sure the person above isn't the right Nellie.
I found an obit for a Nellie J.. She died of Malaria and apparently unmarried. Her father's name was George T. Williams, mother Maria. This young woman is also buried in Oak Woods.
