(Last updated 12/26/15)

Research questions:

WAS IT OUR JOHN OR THOMAS NELSON ABOARD THE ASIA FROM LONDONDERRY (1832)?

WAS THOMAS BORN IN IRELAND OR MD?

SOME OF THE OTHER NELSONS INTERMARRIED WITH OTHER PEARCE RELATIVES: MARY WAS THE WIFE OF RICHARD PEARCE, JR. (1824-1897). OTHERS?

WAS OUR THOMAS NELSON IN THE 62nd PA VOLUNTEERS, CO.H, IN THE CIVIL WAR? ONE FROM BETHEL PARK.

HOW DID OUR THOMAS NELSONS COME TO BE BURIED IN OBSCURITY OFF RT. 8? WAS THIS THE SIGHT OF THE OLD HAMPTON PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH?

Newly discovered resources:

GOOGLE “JOHN NELSON 1778 PA” OR “THOMAS NELSON 1802 PA

Articles begun:

NONE

Speculation:

OUR EARLY NELSONS WERE FROM NORTHERN IRELAND AND MAY HAVE LIVED IN EASTERN PA BEFORE COMING TO ROSS TWP., ALLEGHENY CO.
