Nellie Shelton, died 1916

I came across this death certificate and attached note and did not want this woman to fade away completely.


Nellie Shelton, died 19 June 1916 of tuberculosis at 625 Sycamore in Camden, New Jersey.  Age 28.  Born in Ohio.  Burial at Butler Cemetery.

"She was a stranger to the people among whom she lived, having very recently come among them.  She was too bad to talk much so did not tell them anything about her social condition."
"Nobody knew anything in relation to the matter you inquire about and I overlooked writing in the word 'unknown'."
Truly yours,
S. H. Quint [illegible]
