Photograph of Mary (Wood) Nelson & son Llewellyn Nelson of Groveland, Massachusetts
Cabinet photograph of Mary (Wood) Nelson, wife of George L. Nelson, and mother of Llewellyn Nelson, pictured below. Both of the photographs were taken by the P. W. Tennant studio of Haverhill, Massachusetts. Reverse of photograph of Mary (Wood) Nelson, the text of which reads: Mary Wood Nelson, 1st cousin of Herbert Twombly":
And the photograph of Mary's son Llewellyn Nelson, when a baby:
And the reverse of his photograph, the text of which reads: Llewellyn Nelson, son of Mary Wood Nelson:
I don't have a photograph of the Herbert Twombly mentioned as the first cousin of Mary (Wood) Nelson, but I do have a picture of Herbert's mother, Helen Parker (Goss) Twombly who was a sister to Mary's mother, Laura Ann (Goss) Nelson. Click on Helen's name to see her photograph.
From online research, hopefully correct:
Mary H. (Wood) Nelson was born 12 July 1870 in Groveland, Massachusetts, the daughter of Justin Roswell Wood and his wife Laura Ann (Goss) Wood. Her paternal grandparents were Thomas and Betsey (Harriman) Wood. Her maternal grandparents were Allen Henry Goss and his wife Sophronia C. (Parker) Goss.
On 2 February 1894, Mary married George L. Nelson, who was born in June of 1870 in Massachusetts, the son of Samuel H. and Mary A. Nelson.
Mary H. (Wood) and George L. Nelson had, I believe, at least five children, the oldest of which was Llewellyn, pictured above. Llewellyn Nelson was 4 March 1894 in Massachusetts, and married
Mildred, whose surname and parents I don't yet have. They had at least two sons.
