Nelson, Sadie (28 March 1869 - 8 August 1955) 

Funeral services were held in Greenwood last Thursday for Mrs. Carl Nelson, 86, who died August 8 at her home in the Trondjhem community as the result of a heart ailment.  She had been in poor health for the last three years. 

Mrs. Nelson was widely known in Clark County, having been a resident of Sherwood and Trondhjem and a correspondent for The Clark County Press from both of these communities for many years. 

The services were held from Grace Methodist Chruch, following brief rites at the home, with the Rev. Ethyl Nulton in charge. Burial was made in the Greenwood Cemetery. 

For the last 16 years she had made her home on the farm, two miles northeast of Greenwood in the Town of Warner. 

Mrs. Nelson, nee Sadie Kirk, was born March 28, 1869, in Hartford, Conn.  She was married there in 1905 to George Redman, who died in 1932.  They moved to Chicago in 1916, and later to a farm in the Town of Sherwood.  On November 4, 1936, she was married to Carl Nelson. 

Surviving besides her husband are a brother-in-law, Ervin Emerson of Chicago, and many nieces and nephews who make their homes in the east.
