Birth: Feb., 1868
Hallands län, Sweden
Death: Nov. 18, 1942
Marshall
Clark County
Illinois, USA

Son of Alic and Aletta Nelson of Sweden.
Emigrated from Sweden in 1885.

Husband of Lena (Nilson) Nelson from Sweden.

Married in 29 August 1891 in Chicago, Cook County, Illinois.

Father of Ruth Myrtle, Harold, Roy Leonard Sr, and Helen Nelson.

Died after 1940 in Illinois, because he appeared in the 1940 Census with his wife, Lena. His Great grandson told me that they resided in Elgin, Illinois for their whole lives in America.
