Birth 17 MAR 1908 • Sauk Centre, Todd County, Minnesota, USA

Homer Harry Hart (1881 - 1934)
father of Dorothy Mary Hart

Frank Homer Hart (1906 - 1981)
son of Homer Harry Hart

She was married to Lowell Rudolph Nelson.  Said to later have married to man last name Clair.  Some records show she also used last name of Cutler.  When she died her last name was Foley.

I'm looking for information about her husbands/partners and where she is buried.  Looking for more information about her daughter, Dorrene Clair Lamb.

She was born in Minnesota.  Died in California.  Last address was Yuma, Yuma, Arizona.

She had several children: 

Lowell Rudolph Nelson Jr.

Owen Eckel "Homer" Nelson

Julian Wilbert Nelson

Dorrene Clair Lamb

Any information about these people would be greatly appreciated.

Dear Michele,

   Here is an extract from an obituary. Maybe you can find the full obit in the Grand Rapids Herald-Review in March 2000.

"United States, GenealogyBank Obituaries, 1980-2014," database with images, FamilySearch ( : 26 October 2016), Dorothy Hart Nelson Clair Foley, Minnesota, United States, 19 Mar 2000; from "Recent Newspaper Obituaries (1977 - Today)," database, ( : 2014); citing Grand Rapids Herald-Review, born-digital text.

Hope this helps! -NGP

Dear Michele,

   This seems to be Dorothy's family in the 1930 census.

"United States Census, 1930," database with images, FamilySearch( : accessed 29 January 2017), Lowell Nelson, Bovey, Itasca, Minnesota, United States; citing enumeration district (ED) ED 12, sheet 13A, line 44, family , NARA microfilm publication T626 (Washington D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, 2002), roll 1102; FHL microfilm 2,340,837.

  The listing indicates that husband Lowell was born about 1906 in Michigan.  Also, Dorothy was about 17 when son Owen was born. Check it out! -NGP
