Dr. Nathan Alonzo Kellogg
Dr. Nathan Alonzo Kellogg was born October 11, 1826 in Starkey, New York, the son of Chester Curtis Kellogg and Martha Coe. He married Hannah D. Martin on July 14, 1852 in Casstown, Ohio.
He and his brother, George Kellogg, his wife Hannah, and two-year-old son, William, arrived in Nevada “with the early settlers” in June 17, 1855. In June 1855, there was not a single lot with a fence about it. The fledgling town was merely a cluster of houses standing on the open prairie. Later that year, young Willie died and on April 6, 1856 Dr. Kellogg also passed from this life. Dr. Kellogg was the first adult buried in the Nevada Cemetery.Hannah Kellogg was three months pregnant at the time of her husband’s death and on October 29, 1856 the young widow gave birth to a daughter, Martha A. Kellogg. Hannah never remarried but became very involved in church and community affairs. She remained in Nevada the rest of her life and raised her only daughter here with the loving assistance of her brother-in-law, Judge George Kellogg. Hannah (Martin) Kellogg died in Nevada on February 12, 1923.
