Seeking info on First Marriage........
At a wall so trying a different approach.......
1880 KS Census has:
NELSON, Nilson 34 [~1846] Sweed Sweed Sweed
NELSON, Rebeca 33 [~1847]ILKYIL
Rovenia/Rowenia C age 10 [~1870] "STEP DAU" NE IL OH
Frehie/Trehie but index states Viredrie age 8 [~1872] "STEP SON" NE IL OH
George W. age 5 [~1875] "STEP SON" NE IL OH
NELSON, Henry O. age 2 [~1878] SON NE IL SWEED
I believe the mom and dad birth places were reversed, based on Henry's info.
Rebeca and Nils/Nilson have 2 more NELSON children:
Elsie B b: 1881, Maud b: 1883
Henry's death certificate claims mothers maiden as WATHAM.
and that he was born in Sterling NE
Sterling, Johnson Co, NE Marriages April 1871 - Sept 1877
Lists: Nels H. NELSON and Rebecca W. FARLOW
USGENWEB - Sterling Cemetery, Johnson Co.
Rebecca Forlow NELSON 1847 - 1915
Based on the birth info for the first 3 children; DAD should have been born in OH as mom was from IL.
Is this familiar to anyone???
