Believed to be the daughter of William and Elizabeth (Bowman) Nelson of Low Grantley, Ripon, and of Lumley farm, sometimes given as in Kirkby Malzeard but now Grantley, Ripon, Yorkshire.

ATKINSON.--In the town of Albany, Oct. 21st, of paralysis, Mrs. Mary Atkinson, wife of Mr. Richard Atkinson, aged 82 years and 6 mos.

The subject of this sketch was born in Yorkshire, England, in 1801 [sic]; was married in 1824, came to America in 1843, and to Wisconsin in 1847, settling in Albany, where she lived and died in the same house. She was the mother of 8 children, who with her husband and grandchildren, survive to mourn her loss. She and her husband were raised in the Church of England, but while in Ohio, in 1845 she united with the Methodist Church.

Mrs. Atkinson had been unwell for years. Two years ago she had a stroke of paralysis, which rendered her almost helpless up until the time of her death. Her funeral was from the old home, Thursday, Oct. 23, at 10 a. m., and her remains were interred in the Brodhead Cemetery.

Thus has passed away another well tried Mother. Hers was a life of earnest toil for the loved ones. But her "Labors have ceased," and may her works follow her.
