          Ella Nelson  Minnie Hill  8:44 am friday december 7, 2001
       I am looking for information on Ella Nelson, who lived in Elk
        City at least during 1950's, and may be earlier.  During the
      1950's, she was honored as being one of the oldest residents of
      Elk City.  Her picture was published in the Elk City newspaper.
          From the picture, I would say that she was in her 80's.
       She is my great aunt on my father's side. My father's name was
       Martin Oscar Doran.  I have very little information about her.
          Any information about her would be greatly appreciated.
