Birth: Jan. 24, 1829
Death: Aug. 26, 1881

Aged 52 ys, 7 ms, 3 ds. Husband of Nancy Bovee.

15 Sep 1881 Tekamah, Nebraska
Sudden Death
Bovee--Nelson Bovee was born in Wayne Country, Illinois in 1828; was married to Nancy Walton 1848; was converted and joined the M. E. Church in 1859; came to Nebraska and settled near Alder Grove in 1873, in which he lived until his death which occured at 11 o'clock a.m. Saturday Aug. 27th 1881. In his moments he was enabled to glorious triumph in Christ, whom he had followed so exemplarily for many years. In his death, the county lost one of its best citizens, the church one of its most consistent and exemplarily member, and the family a very kind and indulgent husband and father. The writer preached his funeral to a large concorse of friends and neighbors, Sunday, Aug 18th: Text Tim 6-7 v. Wm. M. Worley.

Mr. Bovee was in Tekamah on the Monday previous to his funeral of Sunday and was slightly ailing, but his family anticipated no serious result. Dr. Gilketson was called and his disease pounced bilious celiac. His suffering up to a few hours before his death was intense, but the end was peaceful and he was himself to almost the last breath. He will be much missed. He was one of nature's humble men and honest conscientious man, careful, considerate, agreeable, yet practical, but his honor was above price. Let those who remain learn to live as well as he and death will have no sting.
