My grandfather was Howard Easter Nelson (1896-1980)
His father was George Howard Nelson (1857-1911), born in New London, Oneida County, New York, and married to Emma Grace Perry (1865-1930) on 7 March 1894 in New London.
His father was Elijah Anderson Nelson, born about 1830 in New York, married to Sarah Strong.
The 1860 New York census (thanks to Sue King) shows a John A. Nelson age 66, born NY, wife, Mary, 45, born NY and Frances E., 15 born NY...with a boarder born in Germany..farm laborer, George Flalesh (looks like that anyway). Right next door is Elijah Nelson, age 30, boat captain, born New York; wife Sarah, age 30, born NY, children:
Elijah, age 9, born NY
Willard, age 5, born NY
George, age 3, born NY.
So it looks likely that Elijah is the son of John A. and Mary.
Does anyone have any information about any of these people?
