Carlyle is Abe Nelson’s son who lived in the Willow Lake road. Carlyle is living in Bottineau. He went to high school in Bottineau. Carlyle still has the farm up on the Willow Lake road several miles south of the Willow Lake School. I saw a lot of Carlyle, both in Dunseith and Bottineau, with our trip back for the reunion in 2007. Gary
I am saddened to hear of Carlyle’s passing. I got acquainted with Carlyle at the 2007 Dunseith 125-year reunion. With subsequent trips back we saw a lot of and became very well acquainted with Carlyle. We’d see him daily, often multiple times, at the Bottineau Bakery. He invited us to his house several times. The picture of him with Bernadette, below, was taken in his house. Carlyle was such a nice friendly guy. I will dearly miss him with future trips back to the area. He graduated from BHS but was Dunseith at heart.
