    BIOGRAPHY: Albert Nelson is a native of east Tennessee, and was born October 26, 1809. He was the fifth son of George and Nancy (Pritchett) Nelson, both natives of Virginia. His parents came to this State about the year 1812, and settled in Washington County. His father was one of those pioneers who aided in building many of the Indian forts of that county. Mr Nelson's schooling was limited; he managed, however, to gain a knowledge of reading, writing and ciphering. December 2, 1830, he married Eliza Garriott, a native of Washington County. To them were born four children, of whom but one, William J, is now living. This son resides in Warren County, Ill.  His wife died December 5, 1838, and on December 30, 1838, he again married Eliza A Densford, a native of Kentucky. To them have been born eight children, of whom six are living, namely: Nancy E, Julia A, Sarah E, James A, Mary E and Charles W. In politics, Mr Nelson is a Democrat; he has been justice of the peace in his town, and with the exception of three years residing in Illinois, he has been a resident of Vernon Township fifty-four years.
