Fuller, Nelson A. (17 JUL 1892 - 6 NOV 1913)
Nelson Fuller died at the home of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. W.D. Fuller, in the town of Hull, Marathon Co., Wis., at 4:30 o’clock Thursday evening, Nov. 6th, 1913, of tuberculosis, aged 21 years, 3 months and 20 days.
Nelson Allen Fuller was born at Genoa Junction, Wis., July 17th, 1892, where he resided until sixteen years ago, when he came to Colby with his parents, who settled on a farm in the town of Hull, near the city limits. He attended the public schools and graduated from the high school in the class of 1911. He helped his parents on the farm after school hours and during the summer vacations, yet teaching was his desire, and after graduating he attended the examinations and secured a certificate to teach. He was teaching school in Price County when taken sick and had to discontinue teaching. His disease was of a tubercular nature and the best of care from his parents and physicians could not stay the fell destroyer. Nelson was one of our bright, industrious young men and leaves many friends who deeply sympathize with the sorrow family and relatives over his early death. Besides his parents he leaves two brothers and two sisters, Frank of Genoa Junction; Will of Fond du Lac; Zoa Belle and Mary Elizabeth living at home, all of whom were here to attend the funeral.
The other out of town relatives present were Mrs. Frank Fuller and Mrs. Geo. Coppersmith of Genoa Junction, and Mrs. M. Place of Hebron, Ill.
The funeral was held from the M.E. Church, Sunday afternoon, Rev. R.R. Braddick officiating. Interment took place in the Colby Cemetery.
