Mr. Nelson was a son of Gardner Nelson and was born in Stevens Point Aug 14, 1872. On reaching maturity he took up railroading which he followed for some time. Later he conducted a farm in Liberty Corners and about seven years ago moved to Plover where he conducted a blacksmith shop until last fall when he gave up work.

The children range in ages from 16 years to 6 months. Garnder Nelson, the father, and a sister of A. R. Nelson, Mrs. Etta V. James of Brocket, N.D., also survive.
