Born in 1890 at Snake Plains [now Glendevie], Nellie was the ninth child and youngest daughter of Alexander Clark and Elizabeth Wigmore.

She married George Patterson, from down the road, in 1915, three years before her father died. Her mother may have hoped that she would care for her, but Nellie moved to Hobart and raised four children, before dying prematurely in 1936. She was buried at Cornelian Bay.
