  • Notes 
    • "Francis Nelson, youngest son of John and Hendrickje (Vander Vleet) Nelson, was born, probably in Mamaroneck, about 1691; died after 13 November, 1750. Until about 1 May 1716, he resided at Mamaroneck ('The Place of Rolling Stones'), at that time he purchased of Colonel Caleb Heathcote, lands in the Manor of Scarsdale, and shortly removed thereto. He was assessor of Scarsdale in 1723. He conveyed, by consent of his wife Ann, 8 October 1733, all his lands in Scarsdale, which he had purchased from Colonel Heathcote, to William Barker of Mamaroneck; and removed to the Highlands of Dutchess County, which had been accomplished by the 31 August. 1736. He purchased of his brother, Polycarpus, an interest in the Great or Lower Nine Partners, a certain tract of land (vide supra). Mr. Nelson was one of the first commissioners of roads for that part of Dutchess which is now Putnam County, 1744. In 1747 Francis Nelson's name disappears from the tax-list of the South Ward of Dutchess County, and in 1750 it last appears on the County Records." [The Nelson Family]
