          Mrs. Ann M. Nelson  passed away on September 7th, at the home of her daughter  Mrs. Alta Scudder, wife of  Prof. Scudder,  of Huntington, Indiana.  The funeral was held at the Mt. Auburn Christian church, conducted by Elder William Mullendore, who paid a feeling tribute to her worth as a friend, a mother and a Christian.
          Mrs. Nelson was the widow of the late  Leander E. Nelson,  former owner of the Cave Mill on Flat Rock.  Four children were born to them,  Mrs. Viola Vaughn  of Bakersfield, California,  Mrs. Valona Grant  of Bloomington, Indiana,  John A. Nelson  of Veedersburg, Indiana, and  Mrs. Alta Scudder  of Huntington, Indiana.  Truly a good woman has passed to the great beyond.
