Nelson County
'Nelson County was named for Hon. N. E. Nelson, a member of the legislature of 1885 and later a postmaster at Lisbon, and a leader in territorial politics. Lying in the eastern central tier, Nelson county is situated in the center of the great agricultural district of North Dakota. Some of the largest farms of the state are located in this county. Lakota is the county seat.' Source: North Dakota Blue Book -- 1942
