Obituary H. P. Nelsen (sic) was born in Copenhagen, Denmark, in 1843 and died at his home in Wolbach, Nebraska, January 10th, 1920, aged 76 years, 4 months and 19 days. His father's name was Nels Olsen and his mothers maiden name is unknown. He came to America in 1864 and settled at first in Wisconsin and afterward in Nebraska at Wolbach. In 1873 he was united in marriage to Mary Larsen.

He is survived by his wife, two sons, one daughter, ten grand children and one great grandchild. One son, Gus Nelsen, and two grand children preceded him to the Great Beyond. The two sons are William Nelsen of Curlew, Wash., and Chas. Nelsen of Greeley, Nebr. The daughter is Mrs. Ida Bartunek of Lincoln, Neb.

In infancy the deceased was baptized and later confirmed in the Danish Lutheran church, and remained an adherent of the Lutheran faith. He was a member of the Danish Brotherhood in Wolbach.

Funeral services conducted by Rev. White were held in Trinity Lutheran church, Tuesday, January 13th, at 2 p.m., after which the remains were laid to rest in Hillside Cemetery.

Grandpa Nelsen as he was often familiarly called, being an old settler, was well known. The church was well filled with old friends, neighbors and members of the Danish Brotherhood. The surviving wife, children and grand children have the profound sympathy of the entire community.
