Hi. I'm not related to this family. This might be Nellie in a 1906 directory listing:

U.S. City Directories, 1821-1989 (Beta) about Nellie E Stebleton
Name:        Nellie E Stebleton
Residence Year:        1906
Street Address:        8th
Residence Place:        Springfield, Illinois
Occupation:        Student
Publication Title:        Springfield, Illinois, City Directory, 1906
--Abraham Stebleton, carp, res 1026 s 8th
--Nellie E Stebleton, student, bds 1026 s 8th

By 1915 she is a music teacher:

U.S. City Directories, 1821-1989 (Beta) about Nellie E Stebleton

--Abraham Stebleton, carp, res 518 E Edwards (Salome)
--Nellie E Stebleton, tchr Springfield Conservatory of Music, bds 518 E Edwards

So, it looks like Nellie's parents were Abraham & Salome Stebleton.

This could be her parents in 1920:

This might be the family in 1900:

Here is his gravesite on findagrave:

There is a Civil War Pension file that lists Salome & her mother:

You can order the above records and find out loads about this family.

So, it appears that Solome was the daughter of Henry & Catharine/Caroline Brooks. This might be the Brooks family in 1870:
