From your post I am working a long-shot:

I am looking for the descendants of H.H. Nelson who died in April of 1923.
According to the obit of H.H. Nelson, he is survived by five children;
Mrs. R.M. Crowley of Newport;
Mrs. John Reynolds of Post Oak;
Mrs. Winfield Scott of Bowie;
Mrs. Sam McDaniel of Tahoka;
and Mr. Spencer Nelson of Anadarko, Oklahoma.

I suspect your Alice Nelson could be the "Mrs. Sam McDaniel of Tahoka...

I am actually looking for the specific death date and location
of Thomas Benton Nelson and the above information caught my eye for these reasons:
1) I live in Anadarko, Oklahoma
2) In the recent past, two of my elders spoke their memories of a Spencer Nelson who lived in Anadarko in the 20's & maybe 30's - Amongst the Anadarko NELSONs, that man was called "Big Spence".
3) My grandfather was William "Spencer" Nelson, however, Granddad was not "Big Spence".
4) In 1880, Granddad's grandfather and family are recorded in the Jack County, Texas census. They are:
T.B. Nelson (Thomas Benton) and wife, Mary Jane (Killman) Nelson
Son, James A. Nelson
Son, Thomas Jefferson Nelson
Son, John L. D. Nelson
Daughter, Letha Matilda "Mattie"
Daughter, Addie Belle Nelson

Thomas Benton's oldest daughter is listed directly above the NELSON family:
Nancy Elizabeth "Lizzie" Nelson is married to Jacob Zuber.

Do any of these names ring-a-bell to you? Am hopeful that you might see this post though it has been six years since you posted this original message. Your response is greatly appreciated.
