Jordan Valley
   Rancher Found
      Dead at Home


   Nelson Russell Van Aller, aged rancher of the Jordan Valley country, was found dead Tuesday at his home near Sheaville, Ore.  The exact time and cause of his death have not been determined by county officers but it is believed that the man, who lived alone, passed away about two weeks ago.  Neighbors report having last seen him about May 8, at which time he was apparently in good health.
   The body was brought to the Peckham chapel and interment was made Wednesday afternoon at the Canyon Hill cemetery in Caldwell with a brief burial service at the grave.
   Van Aller was born in New York on August 6, 1860, and has lived in the Jordan Valley district for the past twenty-seven years.  He is survived by a daughter, Mrs. J. E. Hedburg of Kuna and a grandson, Ray Hedburg who resides in Caldwell
