Researching Nelson T. Hinckley (b. 1836 NY) who moved to Howell, Michigan. He m. Julia E. Hoagland, daughter of Christopher Hoagland (NJ) & Clarinda Griffith (NY).
They named their children: Cora, Persis, Maud & Mary, all born in Michigan.
I have some confusion about an Edward Nelson Hinckley.I do not believe they are the same person according to the 1880 Censuses in Lebanon, New London, CT (Edward) & the 1880 Palestine, Sumner, KS (Nelson).
The Hinckleys are a long line, dating from 1635 just can't fit him in.Thank you, Brenda in Memphis
