Susan Akers

HEBRON, Ind. -- Died, at the home of her son, William Nelson, in Hebron, Oct. 7, 1892, in her 80th year, Grandma Nelson. Susan Akers Nelson was born in Bradford county, Pa., Nov. 22, 1812, and only lacked fifteen days of reaching four score years. She was married to William Nelson Sept. 6, 1832, who preceded her to that land from which "no traveler returns" in Sept. 1887. The services were held in the Christian church Sunday, at 10:30 a. m., by Rev. Findley. The services were impressive to the large audience that had gathered to pay their last respects to one whom they had known and loved. The remains were interred beside those of her husband in the cemetery south of town.
