Nelson Family Line Connection Needed

Hi,

I'm trying to identify my 3rd great grandfather's Nelson family ancestors.  His name was Nathaniel Nelson (Nelson-5795), born abt. 1805 in Ontario or Livingston County, NY.  Some of his family ancestors were probably buried in the Nelson plot in Old Baptist Cemetery in Lima, Livingston, NY.  The cemetery is listed on Findagrave.com.  His earlier colonial Nelson ancestors probably came from Brimfield, Hamden, MA during the mid-1700s.  Thanks.

I quote " Levi Nelson came in 1804 and settled on the farm now owned by William Nelson, South of Attica Village." & " in 1805 the town received a fresh supply of New England bone and sinew, by immigration of such families as those of  Oliver Hodges, Clark Burlingame, Benjamin Powers, Eliphalet Hodges, Jacob Howe, John M. Coffin, Joseph Munger, Levi stanhope, Patrick Alvord, Thomas Whaley, Nancy Wood, Samuel Smith, Nathaniel Eastman, Benjamin Nelson, ETC..." (Note: there are many connotations to Nelson Family on this document).
