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:

So, it looks like Nellie's parents were Abraham & Salome Stebleton.
This could be her parents in 1920:

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