I have an obituary for Nelson Bliss Cleveland born 1815 near Ithaca, Tompkins Co., NY. He married Lydia Ammack and ended up in Stratford, Iowa. Had 5 children. Other surnames associated with him are Carman, Mekeel, Hopkins, Haddox, Hakes. Ring any bells? We also have Cromwells from Westchester Co., NY in our Hopkins/Coles lines.
