Biography

Nellie was born in Boothbay, ME around 1860 to David Dickson (or Dixon) and his wife Eleanor (nee Driscoll), immigrants from Nova Scotia. David worked as a fisherman.[1] Sometime before 1866, Nellie's mother passed away and Nellie, who was the youngest of her siblings, moved in with her grandparents, Jeremiah and Mary Driscoll, in Westport, ME.[2]

In 1878, Nellie married George H. Bennett, a shoemaker in Massachusetts.[3][4] They had ten children in all, six of whom would survive until adulthood. Nellie also worked as a nurse.[5][6]

She passed away in 1916 in Marlborough, MA.[7][8]
