I am looking for information on T.J. Nelson I don't know what the initials
stand for yet. This is a real roadblock. He had 1 son that I know of named Walter William
Nelson son- b.April 26, 1872 or April 30, 1879. I know at one time he resided
in Hood County, TX.

I do not know if this is the same Walter Nelson that you are speaking of. My grandfathers name was Walter William Nelson and he came from Tenn. to Texas where he grew up. I do not know his birthdate but I do know that he died on June 6, 1965. If any of this sounds like it could be the same person please let me know. I am currently researching my family tree and as I find out more I will share the information. As of right now I do not know my grandfathers father's name.

I have a Thomas Jefferson Nelson b. 9 July 1841 d. 26 June 1889 who married Laura Ann Jordan. They were from Franklin County, AL. They had a son Walter Nelson b. ca. 1879. They had many relatives who went to Texas. Maybe a connection there.

Thomas Jefferson Nelson was my great grandfather. His son, Walter, was my grandfather. T.J. served in the Confederate Army and was a private in Company G, 20th Regiment, Alabama Infantry, Lee's Brigade, Stevenson's Division. T.J. was a twin to James Madison Nelson. James was called Moss and T.J. was called Pony. Walter died on April 6, 1969 and is buried in Granbury, Texas. Granbury is a small town close to Fort Worth. This Nelson line lived in Red Bay, Alabama. There are many Nelsons buried in the Nauvoo Cemetery near Belegreen, AL.

Hi Marlyn - I've been hoping to contact you about the Nelsons from Franklin County, Alabama. We had arranged to talk once, but I must have misunderstood the time or confused the time zones or something, because I missed your call. Please email me at ReidBecky@aol.com. Looking forward to hearing from you. By then I may have some info to share from the DAR on Robert Nelson, SR. Thanks, Becky Reid

Becky: Thomas Nelson appears to be my ancestor as well. Could you please share your DAR info. I believe my aunt has perhaps utilized the Nelson DAR info previously for her patriot, or there may have been a missing link on our end and she couldn't. But I've never seen the info. Email me directly at cathy@dustyroads.net. Thanks.
