Obituary of Nels M. Volding
Nels M. Volding was born in Waukon, Iowa, February 7, 1881. At an early age he moved with his people to El Camp, Texas, where he resided until twenty years of age, when he again returned to the state of his birth. In 1905 he was united in marriage to Miss Minnie Nelson. They had two children, Evelyn Inez, who died in infancy, and Ethlyn, who with her mother, survives him.

In his twenty-fifth year he entered the railway service, in which he remained constantly since.

He is survived by his mother, four brothers and two sisters, who reside in Texas and his wife and daughter, Ethlyn.

Funeral services were held at the Cobb Phelps Funeral Chapel in Spencer at 10:30 Tuesday morning and at the Presbyterian church at Estherville at two-thirty with Rev. A. G. Bailey in charge. The relatives from Texas did not arrive until too late for the services on Tuesday so Mr. Volding’s body was not interred until Wednesday afternoon when it was laid to its final resting place in Oak Hill Cemetery, following a short prayer service at one o’clock in charge of Rev.
