Nelson died 6 May 1920 at his home in St. Thomas, Elgin County, Ontario, where he "had been ailing some months from heart trouble". He had moved to St. Thomas about 1890, and attended the Central Methodist Church there.
The following children were those named in Nelson's obituary.
Children of George Nelson and Josephine Oatman:
3200 Talbot R. He was a yard conductor of P.M.R.
3201 Clayton. He was said to be living in "La Pasa, Texas" at the time of his father's death. It is doubtful that this is the correct spelling, and feel that it is either El Paso or Lampasas, Texas.

3204 (Daughter), m. Harold Koyle. They were living in St. Thomas, ON, in 1920.
