Nelson, Mrs. Blanche May (Thompson)

The East Liverpool Tribune


Wife of Miles Nelson, Conductor on Street Car Line

Mrs. Blanche May (Thompson) Nelson, wife of Miles E. Nelson, an extra conductor on the East Liverpool Light & Traction company lines, died suddenly at their home in Ohio avenue yesterday morning (Feb. 19, 1907) at 9:30 o'clock of heart failure. Mrs. Nelson's death was unexpected, for although she had been ailing for the past four weeks, she appeared to be in good health yesterday morning when her husband went to work, and he was first notified of his wife's death while on a car in the Diamond.

Mr. Nelson was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Thompson, of East End, and was born in East Liverpool May 25, 1886. Besides her parents and husband and two small children she is survived by two brothers and one sister, Edgar Ross Thompson at home, James W. Thompson, of East End, and Mrs. Martin Minor, of Braddock, Pa.

Mrs. Nelson was a member of the St. Stephens Episcopal church. Funeral services will be conducted at the residence Thursday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock by Rev. N. M. Crowe, pastor of Second Presbyterian church. Interment in Riverview cemetery.
