FARLOW / NELSON / WATHAM....OH / KS / IL / NE

Seeking info on First Marriage........

At a wall so trying a different approach.......

1880 KS Census has:

NELSON, Nilson 34 [~1846] Sweed Sweed Sweed
NELSON, Rebeca 33 [~1847] IL KY IL

Rovenia/Rowenia C age 10 [~1870] "STEP DAU" NE IL OH
Frehie/Trehie but index states Viredrie age 8 [~1872] "STEP SON" NE IL OH
George W. age 5 [~1875] "STEP SON" NE IL OH

NELSON, Henry O. age 2 [~1878] SON NE IL SWEED

I believe the mom and dad birth places were reversed, based on Henry's info.

Rebeca and Nils/Nilson have 2 more NELSON children:
Elsie B b: 1881, Maud b: 1883

Henry's death certificate claims mothers maiden as WATHAM.
and that he was born in Sterling NE

Sterling, Johnson Co, NE Marriages April 1871 - Sept 1877
Lists: Nels H. NELSON and Rebecca W. FARLOW

USGENWEB - Sterling Cemetery, Johnson Co.
Rebecca Forlow NELSON 1847 - 1915

Based on the birth info for the first 3 children; DAD should have been born in OH as mom was from IL.

Is this familiar to anyone???
