like to expand on it further.JOHN NELSON was the s/o ELI NELSON of norfolk
england. he was b. abt. 1640. he came to new york where he married
HENDRICKJE VAN VLEIT d/o DIRCK VAN VLEIT and GREETJE GERRITSE. they lived in
flatbush until they moved to mamoroneck ny in 1685. he died sometime after
may 28 1713. he bought land from JOHN RICHBELL and his land adjoined ROBERT
PENOYER.

to new amsterdam in the " spotted cow " 15 april 1660. hw was a dutch
soldier. his wife and came over in 1663 in the same ship.. JOHN NELSON and
his wife HENDRICKJE had 6 children that i know of . MARIA bp. 1671 m.

From: tdills FRANCIS NELSONwas probably b. in mamaroneck abt. 1691 ( this is
what my source has and yes i note the 1686 birth date above ) . he died
after 1750. he lived for awhile in scarsdale ny then moved to the highlands
of dutchess co ny. he purchased half of his brother POLYCARPUS' land in the
great nine partnerstract. he was a road commissioner abt. 1744. in 1747 his
name is last found on the tax lists and in 1750 it last appears in county
records for dutchess co. i have him having 17 children by his 2 wives.
