Comments: John Wesley Nelson (Nee: ) | Paintsville KY U.S. | 1941-1960 | Comments: John Wesley Nelson [Sr] was born in 1874 in Lawrence Co., Ky to Isaac and Sally Lynn Nelson. [Wes's parent information is not confirmed.] "Wes" married Malisa Caldonia PRICE, she always told her children her maiden name was MARTIN. Her death certif. says her father was Clay Martin of Knott Co. Ky, her mother was Nancy Price. I can find no information on her mother - I believe Malisa's parents were not married. Malisa's marriage record has her last name as Price. John Wesley and Malisa Caldonia Price Nelson were married in 1893 in Thealka, Johnson Co., KY. They had 10 children, and lived most of their lives in W.Van Lear, Johnson Co., KY. John Wesley Nelson worked for the railroad most of his life, his soc.secur. number was issued by the railroad board. John Wesley married a 2nd time after Malisa died in 1953, to Bessie Harmon. Harmon was her 1st married name, her maiden name is unknown to me. They had no children. John Wesley died in 1970 in W.Van Lear, Johnson Co., Ky - I can find no death certif. nor any birth certif.. If you know any information about this Nelson family, please email me! Thank you! Sharon Nutt
