NELSON,James W. b: 1861 MO d: ?

Am trying to locate information on death & burial of James W. Nelson. He and his younger brother, Henry, were born 1861 & 1864 in Lafayette Co. MO. His father, Lilburn (Marsh) Nelson was killed during Civil War. After his father's death, his mother, Mary Elizabeth Cullen Nelson, married John Wiley Vaughn, whose wife had died in 1861 and left him with 3 small children to raise. James was living in Harrison Co. IA in 1942 and I do not know how soon after that he died. His first wife was Charlotte Martin and they were married in Marion Co. IA. I believe he later married a woman named Emma.

He had 3 daughters, that I know of;

Etha - b: 24 May 1886 m: ____ Wade d: 1969. I believe they were living in Missouri Valley at that time.

Ethel - b: 25 Mar 1890 m: Leonard Allison d 1969 in Berkeley, CA.

Alta - b: 28 Jan 1894 m George Callies d: Jan 1973.

If anyone has any information on the death & burial of James W. Nelson and his wife, Emma, or the daughters, I would appreciate hearing from you.

Thank you
Bev in Oregon
