Re: William Joseph Neilson 1925-1978

Was the name always Neilson? I ask because I am a Nelson, and also know of a another Nelson family from Norway that wound up in SD and other states as well.
My grandfather Alfred Nelson was born in Kivijarvi Finland, as was his father, but some say that maybe before Frank the famiy was from Sweeden--still trying to find this out one way or another-theres no family left to ask about this.
My grandfather Alfred m Sylvia M Piispanen also from Kivijarvi Finland in Quincy MA in Jan 1908. Dad was born Feb 1909(only child)Arvo Alfred Nelson
