About Margaretha Sophia Zeederberg

After her husband's early death, she decided to change the family name Deed of Poll, as she thought she would be able to give her two sons a better life than what they had previously had. So the name changed from NEL to NELSON. She eventually remarried to a Lithuanian Jew who had escaped the killings in Russia. Max Smith was his new chosen name. Her two sons kept the Nelson name.
