Nellie was born in 1883. She is the daughter of John Yates and Sarah Blocker. According to Juanita, "Aunt Nellie was a gentle, patient person, with a husky, throaty voice, which was very distinctive." She passed away in 1924.
Note: Source for the formal name "Sarah Ellen" is found in Juanita's letter, which is the copied record of the old Yates family bible, but she was always called "Nellie." It would be nice to substantiate the formal name - maybe try to find birth certificate?
