Who was James DeWitt Clinton Nellis?

I have a family document titled "Romance of Margaret Ansley", by James DeWitt Clinton Nellis. It was supposed to be published in Topeka, Kansas, Sept. 3, 1906. I don't know if this means it was in a newspaper, or part of a published family history. I have not been able to locate this Nellis in any census - don't know anything about him, but he must have connections to the Montgomery Co., NY early Nellis family, as this story pertains to Margaret Ansley, b. 1762, who married John Spraker, son of George Spraker. Their daughter Catherine Spraker married Daniel Dillenbach (another family of that region). A notation says "D.C. Nellis was a 1st cousin of Daniel Dillenbach".
Can anyone help me identify this relationship, and tell me more about James DeWitt Clinton Nellis, and where this story was published?
