Nelson, Albert (1863 - 15 Aug. 1940)
Albert Nelson, 77, passed away at the Marshfield hospital August 15 of pneumonia. The aged man broke his hip a month ago while helping with the haying at the Sindelar farm in the town of Levis.
He was born in Norway in 1863. Some forty years ago he came to Clark County and settled on a farm in the town of Levis, where he had lived alone throughout the years. He was unmarried.
Until he was injured, he had managed his own farm work and occasionally helped a neighbor, also doing his own cooking and housework. He is well spoken of by his neighbors with whom he had always been courteous and friendly.
He leaves a few distant relatives who were unable to attend the funeral.
Services were held at the Schiller Funeral Home Saturday, August 17, at 2 p.m., Rev. Obed Asp officiating. The body was interred in the Levis cemetery, the pallbearers being neighbors. Mrs. Asp sang several selections.
