Newspaper Article 1921 – Mrs William Nelson

At the age of 75 years there died at “Waikoko,” Tomoana, on Sunday night Mrs. William Nelson, daughter of the late Bishop William Williams, and sister of the late Bishop William Leonard Williams. Her father came to New Zealand in 1845, and worked as a missionary to the Maoris at Bay of Islands, where Mrs. Nelson was born. During the Maori War she resided near Gisborne, and 37 years ago was married to Mr. William Nelson. She is survived by a son, Mr. Lionel Nelson, who is at present in England.

The heartfelt sympathy of the whole community goes out to Mr. William Nelson and the members of the family in their present bereavement.
