Farmer; deacon and clerk of the Baptist church many years; served on the board of selectmen, school board, moderator, and many other offices of trust.
His granddaughters, Dorothy and Florence, remember Hial Nelson as a large man, a little over six feet, and farmer-trim. He wore size 12 shoes.
We see him in photographs as a dour and stern old Yankee with a long white beard. In spite of his appearance, he was a very quiet man with a quiet sense of humor.
He died in October 19, 1922 in Goshen, NH, from a stroke. He is buried at the Mill Village Cemetery in Goshen.
