John Nielson [Neilson] Dead
Mr. John Neilson passed away at his home near Hoprig Sunday morning, July 23. The funeral was held the following Tuesday and interment was in the High Lake cemetery. We did not learn the cause of Mr. Neilsonís death though we presume it was due to ailment incident to old age, as he was about 85 years of age. Mr. Neilson was a native of Glasgow, Scotland. He is survived by ten children. They are James, John, William, Robert, Frederick, Frank, Mrs. Thomas Timmings of Prairie City, Mrs. Margaret Neeman of Rundall, Mrs. Anna Carson and Miss Elizabeth Neilson. There are 25 grandchildren and two great grandchildren. The writer was not acquainted with Mr. Neilson though those who knew him speak of him very highly. The Times extends sincere sympathy to the surviving sons and daughters in their sorrow. (Graettinger Times, Graettinger, IA, August 10, 1916)
