NELSON - Jamaica, All

Post by elsiej70 » Sun Feb 17, 2008 7:06 pm

I'm looking for relatives of my Great Grandfather, Alfred (Gus) C. Nelson. I don't know when he came to the United States, but know he was here at least by 1912 because his first child with my Great Grandmother, Sarah O'Connor, was born in December 1912. Sarah died in 1917 during childbirth and he later married my Step-Great Grandmother, first name Beryl from Barbados.

Any leads are greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hi, my Nelson family, my father's side is from Montego Bay, St. James.

My father, Azariah Nelson, married Cynthia Earle, whose father was Frederick Earle.

Frederick Earle (my grandfather) married Amy McGhie, who had two children Noel Earle and Cynthia Earle.


This is a part of my family tree:

John Nelson (grandpa) <--married--> xxxx Ellis (grandma)
- Azariah Nelson (father) had ~ 5 other brothers, 3 sisters
- - Norman Nelson (me, have 4 brothers)

Frederick Earle (grandpa) <---married> Amy McGhie (grandma)
- Cynthia Earle (mother) had a brother Noel Earle

Any leads on Nelson, Earle, McGhie and Ellis families from St James, would be helpful.

So, I'm putting my Family Tree together and trying to track my family back to Jamaica, of course. I have limited knowledge of the Nelson's and have been using Facebook to help me along a lil.

So here's a lil bit of info, if anyone knows anything or see's a possible connection somewhere let me know.

My name: Hason N. Nelson
My Father: Simon Nelson
His siblings that I know of: Arthur Wilson, Angie Pearl (idk last name)
They had/have an uncle named Larry Murray

I know that my dads mother and her parents moved here from Jamaica in either the 1930's or 1940's because my father was born in Orangeburg, SC in 1948, then they moved to NYC in the 1960's.

Can you help with any other family names? Parents' names? Sister's name? And approximate birth dates would also help narrow it down.

I made an assumption that he was born in the 50's and set the filter for that, came up with only two names in familysearch...

Michael Nelson
Jamaica, Civil Registration, 1880-1999
birth: 1959
death: 15 February 1960
Port Antonio, Portland, Jamaica

Michael George Green Nelson
Jamaica, Civil Registration, 1880-1999
birth: 1957
death: 20 June 1958
Siloah, Saint Elizabeth, Jamaica
parent: Agatha Nelson ... 900%7E1950
