As a young girl she moved to Scribner, Nebr. where she grew to womanhood. On Dec. 20, 1905 she married Andrew C. Nelson of Scribner, who preceded her in death Mar. 10, 1948.

Twelve children were born to this union, two of whom preceded their parents in death. In 1915 the family came to the Lance Creek area in Wyoming where they operated a ranch for 30 years. About two years ago they retired at their home near Gateway.
