ANDREW P. NELSON
Andrew P. Nelson, aged 84 years seven months and 29 days, died some time Saturday night at his home on the Irvine Run road in Brokenstraw township, after an illness of about five years.
Because of the fact that no physician had been in attendance, Coroner Ed Lowrey was notified and, after an investigation, issed a certificate of death from natural causes, and principal ailments being heart trouble and dropsy.
Mr. Nelson was born in Sweden, but had resided in the vicinity where his death occurred for the last fifty years. During his younger days he was noted as one of the most powerful men in the country.
His wife and a sister, Mrs. Anna L. Peterson, Route 81, Jamestown, N.H. survive.
It is expected the funeral will be held from the home Tuesday afternoon at two o'clock and the interment will be in the Lutheran church cemetery at Chandlers Valley.
