I have a NELLIS family, Cornelius was born in the Netherlands and was born approx 1868, wife Mary Nellis also born Netherlands born 1869, their children Cornelius T. Nellis b approx 1905 Michigan, US, Cora Nellis b 1906, Michigan, Edward (John) Nellis born 1908 Michigan and Williard Nellis b 1919 Michigan.
I have the family on the 1930 US Census at Walker, Kent, Michigan, USA.

I see Cora Nellis is on the 1910 census at Kent Michigan, hopefully with the rest of the family.
On the 1920 US census, I have found Willard W. Nellis, Mecosta, Michigan.
I might not have found the right Williard, as I thought he was 19 years old on the 1930 US Census.
Many thanks for your help
Regards
Jo

Hello Ann

Thank you for putting the details from the 1930 US census on the board.
I got my maths wrong with Williard, so he was 19 years old on the 1930 census.
Looking for the family details from the 1910 and 1920 censuses.
Many thanks for your help
Regards
Jo

Ann

Thank you - you have been busy, even found me a death and date of birth
The one I am really interested in is Edward Nellis who was 23 years old on the 1930 census. However, the other names are easier to find, more unusual.
Again many thanks for the info - much appreciated.
Jo

You are busy! The Carnelius M Nellis is yes, my family. I trust that is the 1910 census Obviously some family I did not know about, so that will keep me busy later.

The ???? 1940 census at Grandville, Kent, Michigan, is another son with a new wife and 2 boys. Again added info, thank you very mucyh
