1 "The sad part of the story is that after the death of Esther Olmstead
Nelson in 1874, Gilbert Nelson remarried. The children's stepmother alienated a number of the children who left the homestead as soon as possible.
According to the census of 1891, Gilbert and Sarah were occupying the
family homestead alone with two hired hands. Period. I have not been able to locate "Sarah's" last name. It is a legend in our family that Esther Olmstead Nelson was a model irreplaceable mother. Poor Sarah! She didn't have a chance."

Great care was taken to comply with the law, as the lists of persons warned clearly show.
