Nelson never knew his birth date or year. He used December 20th, the month and day that he received his Patriarchal Blessing from John Smith in Nauvoo, Illinois. He always guessed that he was born around 1834, so that is the birth year on his headstone. Andrea Rounds is believed to have discovered his actual birth date through genealogical research.
