Jeremy and Rebecca Nelson of Woodland announce the birth of their son, John Robert Nelson. John arrived on Thursday, June 18, 2020 at 12:04 p.m. at Roseville Sutter. He weighed 8 pounds, 1 ounce at birth, and measured 21.25 inches in length. John is another Gem of the Nelson family of Winters who is loved by his grandparents Jill & Josh Nelson, his great-grand parents Darlene Kovach & Chuck Frey, and all family soon to meet him.
Winters once boasted a prosperous Japanese community, which tragically burned on Aug. 1, 1942 when the United States was celebrating victory over Japan. While the cause of the fire has never been determined, Winters saw discrimination toward Japanese Americans following the war.
