Nellie's obituary: Unknown newspaper, Aug. 1903: Nellie Jane Landon, (nee dabbs) was born on Otter Creek, Jersey county, Ill. 31 July 1878; died 20 Aug. 1903, age 25 years and 21 days; was married to Elmer Landon at 18 years of age, and leaves with him but one child, a bright little boy of five summers. Her father and mother, three sisters and two brothers survive her. Six- two infants, two sisters and two brothers of adolescent years - precede her to the world of spirits bright. Her funeral was preached by the Rev. J.W. Teaney of Otterville at Buckeye school house; she was buried in the family cemetery, Charles F. Fales of your city embalming the remains and carrying them to the place of interment. In her the mental temperament was predominant, characterized by a rather light frame; a relatively large head and face, full forehead, finely cut features, bright expressive eyes, slender neck and only a moderately developed chest. The hair was soft and fine, neither abundant nor dark colored, and the expression of the face varied and animated. In its outward manifestations this temperament would indicate refinement, vividness of conception, the thoughts quick, the senses acute, the imagination lively and the moral sense largely influential. As a result in the world of action we should expect hopefulness, enthusiasm, earnestness of purpose, courage and a restless industry. Persons thus endowed are apt to consume their vitality faster than the physical organism can replace it, and a physical or mental breakdown is inevitable, unless they avail themselves of such means as will strengthen and fortify the physical powers. But consumption wears a mask and is so insidious in its incipiency that its victim is often, or nearly of obituary is missing
