I am looking for information about my great-great-great grandfather. His name was Jerome Nelson, born in Virginia, lived in New Lisbon, Ohio. He was an abolitionist and served in the civil war for the Union. He was married to Ann Whitaker. They were Episcopal Methodists. I'm researching my fathers side and I come to a dead end with Jerome. Can anyone help? Thanks.

I'm searching for my father's birthparents. He was adopted. He was born George William Nelson on June 8, 1928 in Los Angeles, CA. His birthmother was Clara Nelson, unmarried, born around 1907 or 1908 in Washington state. The birthfather is listed as Fred Nelson, born around 1902 or 1903, a laborer, birthplace unknown. My dad's paternal DNA tested R1a1. I have my dad's adoption record, he was adopted by Leonard & Edith Row. I have a sample of Clara Nelson’s handwriting.
