Tombstone Tuesday: Mrs. Hannah Nelson

Mrs. Hannah Neslon
Mrs. Hannah Nelson

In Memory of Mrs

Hannah wife of Mr.

Jonathan Nelson

who died July 14

1802 aged 75 years.

Hannah is the daughter of Thomas and Hannah Stevens Cheney. She was born 20 March 1726/1727 Newbury, Essex County, Massachusetts. Hannah marries Jonathan Nelson 24 December 1752 according to Haverhill, Essex County , Massachusetts records.

Sutton New Hampshire history mentions the birth of  four Children:

1. Betsey Nelson born 11 Feb 1753 died young

2. Philip Nelson born 2 June 1756 Rowley Massachusetts married Hannah Quimby

3. Asa Nelson born 1754 Rowley Massachusetts married Abigail Harriman

4. Betsy Nelson 11 Mar 1759  I have not found records to prove or disprove the relationship to Hannah and Jonathan Nelson other than the Sutton history.

Next week I will post Jonathan’s grave marker with more Nelson history and my possible connection.
