Re: The earliest Nelles family in Ontario

In Reply to: The earliest Nelles family in Ontario by Kathleen of 508


Has been quite a while since I have played around on the genealogy sites...

I just read a post from you dated August 12, 2008. It is titled "The earliest Nelles family in Ontario.

After reading this, some things clicked in my feeble brain, foremost is the fact that my great great grandmother, Eliza, was at one time married to John Nelles. They had one daughter named Delilah, which is my great grandmother, According to an article posted by Janet, Eliza died in 1875.

Anyway, Delilah married Henry. J. Ince, and they had several children, one which is Hulda, my grandmother.
Hulda was born August 17, 1866 and died January 17, 1922.

Some time ago I found that Henry J. Ince lived on lots 16&17 Range West of Plank road,(presently highway #6). These lots bordered on the north of the Six Nations.

According to your posting mentioned above, Henry Nelles acquired land in 1787 at what became known as the Nelles tract.

I am thinking that John Nelles, father of Delilah Nelles, might have been one of the people who settled on the land, and then his daughter, Delilah might have gotten it. Don't know I am just reaching, trying to find out some things.

Another interesting fact is that after her marriage to John Nelles, Eliza married Elias Partridge. Henry J. Ince worked as a barkeeper in an inn run by Elias Partridge on the Plank Road. H.J. also was the township clerk for Oneida township for 30 years. So this is what I surmise:

Eliza Gilmore m. John Nelles, had one child named Delilah. Don't know what happened to that marriage.

Eliza then married Elias Partridge, had one child by him named Charles.

Deliah married Henry J. Ince, October 8, 1851, had several children, among which was Hulda, my grandmother.

I also found out that after Delilah died, H.J. Ince married Melissa and he died in Millet, Alberta at age of 76 years. Is this as confusing to you as it is to me????

Thank for taking the time to read this, and maybe you can come up with something about John Nelles, and what happened to him. At one time you told me that there were two Nelles brothers who were bad he one of them???

Again, thank you for your time.
