I would appreciate any informationconcerning Nelson Elam Billington or Elam Nelson billington. He is my great -great grandfather. He married Julia whelan1843, in Michigan but wasborn inOneida county or Monroe county N.Y. 1804-1811, His father was John Billington, 1760, Middleborough, Ma. whose first wife wasLurena Horten- they had two sons, John and Seth. His second wife was Mercy- possible Nelson or Alden (first marriage), I am trying to determine who Nelson's mother actually was. His father died in either Verona or Clarkson. John and Seth movedto Ohio - Seth was killed by lightening and then John- his brother married his widow, Millie Slack they ended up in La Porte County, Indiana and had a son Lorenzo. Our Nelson or Elam lived in Laporte for awhile with his family andthen settled with Julia in Franklin township, Len. County, Mi. Their daughter, Laura LutheriaHitchcockBilington marriedIrvin John whelan - they are my great grandparents. I would really appreciate any information on these Billingtons. My great aunt, Florence Whelanand her daughter Marion did extensive research on our line of Billingtons and Whelans but was still notquite sure of Nelson's parentage.
