Wayne, thank you for looking.  I do have his birth record.  Can't find anything else on parents.  I suppose I shouldn't expect to get back any farther.  Just thought I would give G2G a try.

problem there are 5 George Neilsen born in this time period.Plus saw

4 children born to them dating 1780-1785 then Irving in 1796.Looks a bit

That does seem odd.  There is also a son George born 1793.  If George was in fact a sailor.  He may have spent long periods away from home.

I'm gonna research the other siblings and perhaps some info on the parents will be revealed.
