MCHQ Biographical Sketches of Early Marshall Co Families for Hiram WILSON, Vol. IV, Summer 1973, No 11, pg 61 states that Elanor (Nelly) WILSON married Nathan LONDON, son of Amos and MARY LONDON.  That Nathan was Amos’ son must be incorrect as Nathan is defined as John's son by way of his deposition in the LONDON vs LONDON case.
