The story of Alton Roberts Nelson of Maine (likely Lewiston).  My 2nd great granduncle, brother to my 2nd great grandfather, George Scott Nelson.  Adding the story here with hopes of finding out more about their father, Eugene Frank Nelson (b. 1836, Maine).  Many signs point to a Moses Nelson being the father to Eugene, but not enough evidence for me yet to accept it.  My family genealogy site is focused on my many families and how they all end up in Ohio.

Marion (Garland) Nelson did survive her marriage to Alton. She married Charles F. Swan 24 May 1904. This was recorded in Boston as an "out of town marriage." The couple lived in Boston in 1920.

Thank you very much!  Just earlier today I received a response from another user on Ancestry, whose sister-in-law's grandmother was Inez (Nelson) Powers.  The only information he had to share was, that, and that they had a mystery involving a Grandma "Swan".  I'm glad I bothered to look into Alton.
