Looking for information on Matthew Nelson of VA and NC. According to the Encyclopedia of Virginia Biography, he was born in Prince Edward County, VA in 1763, (but I have also seen the date of 1779), and died in Person County, NC, in 1840. He was in the War of 1812. He married Margaret Stephens (Stevens) and they had the following children: Thomas, Matthew, Ruffin, Major, and Howell Stephens.

Capt. Howell Stephens Nelson (Civil War) married Ann Judson Overbey (Overby). Among their children was son, Matthew Overbey Nelson, of Acree's Tobacco Warehouse, Danville, VA.

Any information on the earlier lineage of Matthew Nelson is greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
