Date of Obituary:
June 1877
Obituary: Died: at Farmington, Mo., June 11, 1877, Mrs. Angelina NELSON, aged 59 years, 2 months and 11 days. The subject of this notice was born in the town of Lyman, N.H., April 2nd, 1818. SHe was married at the age of 18 to her now bereaved consort, Rev. H. NELSON, late of the Southern Illinois Conference of the M.E. Church. Soon after marriage she removed west and with a large circle of relatives settled in and near Brighton. About 1840 she made a clear and decided profession of faith in Christ during a memorable meeting held in Brighton, by Revs. James LEATON and L.C. PITNER, and continued in the faith and in connection with the communion of her early and deliberate choice to the end of her earthly probation. For twelve years she cheerfully shared, with her husband, the labors and sacrifices of an itenerant life in the above mentioned conference, and many yet live to testify of her devotion to duty, and the steady clear light of her christian example. She was the mother of eight children, six of whom passed on before their mother to the spirit land. Though possessing a frail constitution and delicate health, yet such was her prudence of habit in wisely applying her energies that she accomplished much, and the average and aggregate of her life work compares favorably even with the robust and healthy. Orderly in her domestic arrangements; calm and quiet in her habits of life, and ever impelled with the noble purpose to do the duties of each hour as the hour passed, she meekly filled her mission and peacefully entered into her rest. Her remains were brought to Brighton for internment and her obsequies were attended by a very large circle of relatives and sympathizing friends. The service was conducted by Rev J.A. SCARRITT in the M.E. Church,and the pastor of the church, Rev I.B. REYNOLDS, performed the burial service at the North Cemetery.
