The William Nelson that you refer to is probably not a relative of Thomas Nelson,jr.. His father was Thomas "Scotch Tom" Nelson was from County Cumberland in Penrith located in northern England near the Scottish border. "Scotch Tom" immigrated to Yorktown, VA. about 1704 and the family generally has stayed in Virginia.
