Hi Joan,

On quick look at census pages, there were 20 NELSON households in NH in 1820. Most were in Hillsborough Co. I don't see Salisbury, NH, mentioned, and I don't know which county it is in. So, I'll go find out.

Oops. I went back to 1810 and found 2 NELSON households in Salisbury:

NELSON, LEVI (1810 U.S. Census)
NEW HAMPSHIRE , HILLSBOROUGH, SALISBURY
Series: M252 Roll: 24 Page: 235

NELSON, STEPHEN (1810 U.S. Census)
NEW HAMPSHIRE , HILLSBOROUGH, SALISBURY
Series: M252 Roll: 24 Page: 232


Oh, my early-morning eyes missed these in 1820:

NELSON, JONATHAN (1820 U.S. Census)
NEW HAMPSHIRE , HILLSBOROUGH, SALISBURY
Series: M33 Roll: 61 Page: 101

NELSON, STEPHEN (1820 U.S. Census)
NEW HAMPSHIRE , HILLSBOROUGH, SALISBURY
Series: M33 Roll: 61 Page: 101

WHEELER is a popular name in New England. I'll check for that couple in 1860 in a few minutes.

Betty (near Lowell, MA)
