This will tell you about the history of the mines in Gallatin. There were salt mines very early on.

The above land records don't seem to indicate any land purchases in Gallatin.

Check Pat Stevens Site:

He has a lot of Lurton information with reference to Jersey Co. in the early levels. Maybe he can give you some leads to Nelson and there is a Nelson M. buried in a cemetery that he has listed. He also has Reed in this tree but didn't find a direct link to the Lurton she had listed

SMITH, ROBERT M LURTON, SARAH M JERSEY CO, IL 09/02/1858 A /171

Smith, Robert M. IL JERSEY CO. JERSEY LANDING PRECINCT 114 1860 Whoever this Sarah was she was 22 in 1860 census records and he was 27.

It is apparent from the 1850 census records that Sarah b. abt. 1822 MO is a widow with children Mary A. 18, Caroline 13, Joseph 11, Henrietta 9, and Sarah 7, all born IL. Therefore, I have to assume that Nelson did die 1844 and before 1850 as Sarah the youngest was born in 1843. Sarah and family are living next door to William A. and Elizabeth in Jersey Co, IL in 1850.

Not my line but you looked like you were really floundering and thought maybe something I could scrounge up would help.
