     Nellie Pearl Palmer was born on 9 March 1889 Elk City, Lincoln County, Oregon, was Benton County in 1889. Her birthday was always celebrated on the 9th, but, from Benton Co. Oregon Delayed Birth Certificate, the birthdate is listed as 07 March.2 She was the daughter of Henry Laramie Palmer and Charlotte Ellen Parks. Nellie married Oscar William Dunford 26 May 1911 Jacksonville, Jackson County, Oregon. Nellie Pearl Palmer died 6 August 1980 , in Nogales, Arizona at age 91 and was cremated; her cremains were returned to the family plot at the Pioneer Cemetery, Jacksonville, Oregon.
     ( As of 1889, Nellie.) As of 26 May 1911,her married name was Dunford. In 1898, Nellie Pearl Palmerresided Marion County, Oregon.3

In 1901, Henry gave guardianship of Nellie to Mary (Parks) and G W (Wash) Palmer in Jackson County, Oregon. I don't believe they were living there at the time, and that Nellie was living with Nettie and Henry J Boyd in Ashland. She was graduated from Southern Oregon Normal School in 1909 Ashland. She was a teacher and taught at "Foots Creek" (Goldhill) before teaching in J'Ville; all grades circa 1910.
