Mary and Jane Nelms of Virginia
Posted by: June Phillips (ID *****6174) Date: March 19, 2011 at 10:01:58
  of 1296

Mary Nelms born Apr 1828 in Lancaster County, VA. and sister Jane born about 1830. Mary married Captain Peter Francis a Swedish Sea Captain on 5 May 1841 and had three children, Sarah Ann, Maria Jean,and Peter II born in Wakefield, Westmoreland, VA.
Jane Nelms married Peter Hanson and had seven children,Ann Margaret, George W.,Mary F., Susan S., Johanna L.,and Andrew J. Hanson. This family lived in Baltimore, Maryland. My problem is that I can not find the parents of Mary and Jane Nelms. I suspect that they may be John Nelms who died before 9 Nov 1856 and his wife Maria Elliston who was born about 1801 in Northumberland County, VA. and died before 1856. I am hoping that someone has them in their tree and would be willing to share their information. Mary Nelms is my 2nd great grandmother.
