    • BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: The 1901 Canada census shows him as having immigrated in 1890. He was living in Delta with his wife Nettie May (Gilfillan) Nelson, who was born in Ontario, and their one-year old daughter Linnie M. Nelson, also born in Ontario. His occupation was a photographer. He does not show up in the 1911 Canada census, however, he's listed as photographer in the 1911 BC provincial voters list for East Kensington.

      Their daughter was married in Los Angeles, CA, on 12 Dec 1925 to Roy Gilley. A second, divorced daughter, Nettie May Ton, was also married in Los Angeles on 19 Nov 1943 to Sidney Thomas Norris. [3, 4]
