    Notes 


    • Cora mentions going “to Nellie’s party” on November 2, 1944. On March 22, 1945, Cora was “over to Nellie’s for luncheon.” On November 5, 1945, Bess and Cora were “to Nellie’s party.” On November 14, 1945, Cora “rode with Nellie” to Id’s luncheon. On February 7, 1946, Cora met Nellie downtown. On April 25, 1946, Cora was “over to Nellie’s” in the afternoon. Oscar and Nellie, with Id, visited Cora and Maurice on May 5, 1946 (probably to celebrate Oscar and Nellie’s 2nd wedding anniversary). On June 26, 1946, Cora was “over to Nellie’s” in the afternoon. On January 16, 1947, Cora was to a luncheon at Nellie’s. That is the last she is mentioned in Cora’s diary. Nellie is not mentioned when Id, Bess, and Oscar visited Cora and Maurice in Bloomington on August 3, 1948.

      The 1947 St. Cloud city directory lists a Mrs. Nellie Carlson residing at 701 McKinley Pl.

      She is not the person in Minnesota death certificate 1948-MN-021480.

      The 1905 Minnesota state census has an Ernest and Nellie Challman living in Minneapolis with their children Wiilard, 3, and Mildred, 5 months. Ernest and Nellie were both born in Sweden: Ernest in about 1870 and Nellie in about 1876. Ernest was a blacksmith.

      In the 1910 census, as Chellman, the family lived at 2549 33rd Avenue in south Minneapolis. They had been married for 10 years and Nellie had had only the two children. Earnest had come to the U.S. in 1872, Nellie in 1894. Earnest was a blacksmith in a blacksmith shop.

      In the 1920 census, as Challman, the family lived at 3815 Columbus Avenue in south Minneapolis in a house that they owned. Earnest now is shown as having come to the U.S. in 1890. He is still a blacksmith in a blacksmith shop, apparently his own business. His son Willard, 18, is a bookkeeper in a blacksmith shop.

      In the 1930 census, both the kids have moved out and it’s just Nellie S., 52, and Ernest, 60, living at their house at 3815 Columbus Avenue. That house is evaluated as worth $7000. Ernest is shown as having come to the U.S. in 1890, Nellie in 1891. Ernest still has his blacksmith shop.

      In the 1940 census, a Nellie Challman, a 64 year-old widow, lived at 3815 Columbus Avenue in Minneapolis in a house that she owned and that she lived in in 1935. She had no occupation but had two lodgers living with her.

      Nellie S. Challman, b. 4 Nov 1875, died in Hennepin County on 11 May 1964. Her mother’s maiden name was Gustafson. Her son Willard E. Challman, b. 24 Jun 1901, died in Hennepin County on 19 Jun 1961. His mother’s maiden name was Peterson.

      She is listed as Nellie Challman in the 1932, 1934, 1935, 1936, 1937, 1940, 1944, 1948, and 1958 city directories:

      1940 Nellie S (wid Ernest) 3815 Columbus

      1944 Nellie S (wid Ernest) 2503 Portland Avenue

      1948 Nellie S (wid Ernest) sec-treas Challman & Co Inc 1904 14th Ave S

      1958 Nellie S (wid Ernest) sec-treas Challman & Company 3428 16th Ave S

      She is not listed as Nelle Challman in the 1946 city directory. In that directory she is listed as Nellie S, wife of Carl O Carlson, 4346 40th Ave. S.

      Her obit was in the Minneapolis Star on May 13, 1964. She was “formerly of 3428 16th Ave. S.” and died in a rest home. Burial was to be at Crystal Lake. Lived most of her life in Minneapolis and was a member of the Minnehaha Chapter 37 of the Eastern Star. Survivors include a daughter, Mrs. Robert Mead of Arlington, Va., a sister, Mrs. Anton H. Anderson, Seattle, two grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
