Linda, You have certainly acquired a lot of information on the Nelson and Delashmet families.I wonder if you have any information on Sarah Nelson Delashmet, wife of John Delashmet,(brother of Elias Delashmutt, Sr. (d. 1752)), sister of Elizabeth Nelson Delashmutt, wife of Elias Delashmutt.They were both daughters of John Nelson, d. bef. October 1750 in Frederick Co., MD.
Sarah Nelson Delashmet was mentioned as one of John Nelson's daughters in his will but was not listed as one of his surviving children when his will was probated.I have assumed that she died about the same time that her father died.Her husband, John, remarried in 1752 to Jane---.
You mentioned a Sarah Delashmutt who m. Ralph Briscoe in your post.Was she one of Elias, Sr's daughters?
I have accumulated quite a lot of data on the activities and descendants of John Delashmet and Sarah Nelson which I will be happy to share with you.I lack confirming data which would prove my assumption about the date when Sarah Nelson died. Frank
