We Trust In God To Meet

(Her birth year was probably 1897 since she was listed on the 1900 Federal Census.
 On the census her age was noted as 3 years old and her birth month was April just like it was listed on her headstone. Nellie Ellison Suggs was buried at Rest Haven Cemetery in Wilson County, NC)

Don't you just love it when you haven't checked Find A Grave in a while and all of the sudden one of your ancestors pops up! That happened to me the other day. Nellie Ellison Suggs was my 1st cousin 4x removed. She was the daughter of Harvey Ellison Sr.(b.1861--d.1925) and Laura Harper (b.1867--d.1934) of Olds, Greene County, NC.
