We've been working on my friend's Nelson tree and found Thomas Nelson b1710 in Plymouth son of Thomas Nelson and Hope Huckins
From records in ancestry.com and familysearch.com we are seeing he had two wives-one listed as Agnes "Cherokee Indian" m 1735 in North Carolina and son Abraham b 1735. Then it appears he returns to Plymouth and then marries Judith Peirce,
His cousin Samuel, son of Samue Nelson and Sarah Holmes went to North Carolina with his wife Elizabeth Warren where they raised their family so it does make sense that the cousins all went to North Carolina together.
Abraham Nelson had a son he named Thomas Burton Nelson which we figure that would fit if he were related to the Thomas Burton Nelson in Plymouth.
So--we're trying to find anything showing Thomas Nelson and "Agnes" in North Carolina or Thomas going to and leaving North Carolina. My friend has a book of Nelson history which shows Thomas Nelson leaving land in North Carolina to his son Abraham who then leaves it to his son Abraham and so forth.
I feel like the answer is right before my eyes but I just can't find it. Any ideas, help, answers, good wishes are appreciated.
