Ezra was born Oct 5, 1840 Paris TWP; Union County Ohio; died Sep 12, 1860; drowned in Badley's Hole; part of the Skunk River; now in Geode State Park, Des Moines County Iowa; Augusta TWP. His father was William Nelson & Elizabeth Badley; buried next to his mother.

I don't have a picture of his dad William Nelsons' stone but, he was born Oct 30, 1805 Ross County Ohio and died Nov 11, 1881 Den Mark, Lee County Iowa. Burial is said to be in this cemetery of Geode State Park. A lot of the stones have been washed away when the Skunk River changed it's course.
