I am a great grandson of the Nels Nelson to whom you refer.
Recently, I have returned to spending some time working on family history. I personally knew Christella Bell Holston Nelson in her last years. If I can be of any help, please contact me. I stumbled across this site due to one of my current projects, which involves filling in information on Alfred Bernard Nelson and his children. Alfred (usually known as Bernard) was born in Kootenai County in 1890, married Constance L. Cassidy in 1925, (also in that county I believe), ran a prminent funeral home in Rathdrum for many years, and died in 1951. Bernard was the oldest child of Nels and Cinderella. Laura Gonser was taken care by the Nelsons from very early in her childhood until her death at age 22. Contact me for further details if interested. If you can be of any help with info on Bernard and his family it would be most appreciated.
