Charles E. "Chas" Nelson
Birth: Jun. 17, 1904
Hickory Station
Montgomery County
Arkansas, USA
Death: Feb. 25, 1969
Kern County

The oldest child of James Fielding and Sarah Ellen Reynolds Nelson. His father died when he was just a teenager and he worked in the lumber mills in AR and eventually went to Boulder City, NV to work for Six Companies [the builders of Hoover Dam] as a mechanic and taught himself to become a machinist. He also hauled a lot of rock up and down the mountains as did his brothers who came to work with him. He was given the nickname "Stoney" for an auto crash (I was told) he had one time. He married 3 times and had four children. First marriage was to Della Billingley, Second to Bessie Inez Rawls [they had a daughter, Judith Ann]. Third marriage to Helen Ware. He never returned to Arkansas.
