In 1891, she moved to Buena Vista County where until the time of her death she has made her home. Five children were born to her, one orf whom died in infancy and one in young womanhood. Three children survive her, Rev. N. R. Bisbey, of Webb; C.R. Bisbey at whose home she passed away and a daughter, Mrs. George McNeir, of Spring Valley, Minn. All of her surviving children were with her when she passed away. She accepted Christ and was baptized into the Baptist Church in 1840 and was a consistent Christian for sixty-one years. She died in perfect peace and faith in the Savior she had trusted for so many years. For the past two years she has been a great sufferer but through it all she retained her mind and bore the pain with Christian patience and fortitude. She talked of death as simply going home and her last intelligible words were "Jesus will help." The funeral services were held at the home. Rev. Lapham, Baptist minister at Ayrshire, officiating, after which all that was mortal of grandma Bisbey was laid to rest in the Garfield Cemetery."

37 "known by everyone as "Nell."

Crandall Melia(her nephew) says-- " Aunt Nell was one of the most delight
ful people I ever knew. As I indicated in the notes on Uncle Oscar, I spent several summers in Kalispell when I was growing up and Aunt Nell had some of the best positive attitude and lived a life that was able to find humor in the most unpleasant moments. It seemed that she knew everyone in Kalispell in those days, as she was in the pharmacy every day greeting everyone with a big smile and a funny story.

After Uncle Oscar had terrible emphysema ( he was a heavy smoker) and as his health deteriorated, they sold the store in 1951. Oscar died in July, 1961, at the age of 57, and after living several years a widow, Aunt Nell remarried. She married a man that she and Oscar had met while trying to treat his failing health at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester. Art Frasier was there with his wife who was dying of cancer. After being single several years, Art called her from Vancouver, Canada and they again met when both returned to the Mayo Clinic for check ups. They got together and decide that they really enjoyed each other's company, and later married and remained so for nearly 20 years, living out their years in beautiful Vancouver. Aunt Nell often said that she was really blessed as " most women never have the opportunity of having one loving, faithful husband, and she had TWO!"

We (Charlotte, Crandall and family) had the opportunity to get to know them both very well as they spent many winters in Southern California, to get away from the months of rain during January, February and March in Vancouver. They always spent several days with us and the rest of them at the beach somewhere where we would visit them on the weekends. Art was a wonderful man, both to Nell and to us and had almost as good of a sense of humor as Aunt Nell, although it was much dryer. We would sit for hours while Nell entertained us with her humor and insight into the Melia family, which she knew from afar and from outside observation. Art was a very big man, and because of circulation difficulties, he would walk at 3 to 4 miles a day. Wherever he stayed, he would start down the street and talk to everyone he came up to, whether it was the gardener or the homeowner, and then usually find a pub or at least a coffee shop along his walk and after a few days knew all of the gossip and history of the community. Nell was an avid reader and upon arriving in a town, inquired first of the location of the library where she spent literally hours each week. They took wonderful care of each other until each of them died in Vancouver in their nineties." 
Vasey, Ellen A. (I25269)
 
38 "known only as 'Keith'." Crandall says he knew him all his life and nev
er knew his first name was Chester until preparing this genealogy.

From "The Melia Family", Kay Melia his first cousin and boyhood close friend:

Keith was my buddy for many years. Our first 17 years were spent within a mile or two of each other. We were in 4-H together, played high school sports together, rode horses together all over the country.---

Keith Married Charlene Swayze, a member of a prominent Bucklin family, had a couple of beatuiful daughters and farmed hard for many years. He also contracted M.S., and died at the age of 66 in Bucklin."

Crandall Added--Keith was one of the most loved people in Bucklin. He volunteered for about every charity event that came up and served on work committees and was always there when someone needed help. I remember when we were visiting back in Bucklin, in a rental car, and slid off one of the muddy country roads into the ditch. It was Keith, on his way to a banquet in his suit, who came with his four wheel drive pickup and pulled us out so we could go to the banquet also. He was well known for always having a smile on his face and a quick willing helping hand.
