It looks like John T Nelms may have been married 3 times if the one who married Martha A Coleman in Terrel Co is the same person.

John S. Nelms...B. W. Moon...20 Jul 1887...Elbert, Ga [? mis-transcribed on the "S" ?]

Did not find him in 1850 but found this for 1860. May be him. The family this one is with are too young to be his parents. Could be brother or uncle. Didn't find any of the men in 1850.

Deep Creek Cem, Elberton, Elbert Co, Ga

J T Nelms. 1845-1918. Buried beside Martha C. Nelms
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=ne...;

Martha C Nelms. 1846-1887. Buried beside J.T. Nelms
This could be Martha C F Moss or Martha Coleman
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=ne...;

Barbra W. Moon Nelms. 1855-1936
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=ne...;
==========================

With Martha Moss having the middle initial "C" in 1860 it'd be difficult to tell which one she was, Moss or Coleman.

Since Jeptha T Nelms shows up in Newton Co in 1880 he may be a relation to John T.

Hope this helps. No relation.
