Finding my Ancestors

My Great Grandmother: Catherine Walsh-Nelson was born in Philadelphia, PA on 5/26/1894 and died, 6/6/1949. Her parents: John Walsh, born in 1870, Ballina, Ireland and her mother, Anna McDermott-Walsh born in County Mayo, Ireland in 1872.
My Great Grandfather: Howard Joseph Nelson, born in Philadelphia, PA on 1/14/1890 and died on 1/21/1978. His parents: Jonathan Nelson was born in Sweden in 1854. Mary ?-Nelson was born in Wilshire, PA in 1860.
I would love to find my ancestors. If anyone can help me find them, I'd appreciate it very much. I'm trying to find sites that don't cost money to join. I haven't found any yet that can help me without having to pay for the information.
My Grandfather: Joseph Howard Nelson born in Philadelphia, PA on 5/22/1921 and died In August, 2003 in Naples, FL. I have his siblings first names but no middle names. I have their D.O.B. and some of the names of their children.
Thank you.

Sincerely,
Jackie Nelson-Barkley

great-grandfather, John George Goller

Applied for naturalization 1854; worked in mill and lost a finger; became a Phila policeman; never spoke English. Lived on 146 Levering St and also Ridge Road. Do you have any listing of mill employees?
I have a picture of him and a woman,unsure if either first or second wife,taken by WG Entrekin in Manayunk before 1880. Does anybody have the photographer's collection? I'd like to know which wife.
Also, what is easiest way to get info about his first wife's background? She was Catherine, buried in German Lutheran cemetery in 1874 or 1875.All I have been able to find are two Katherine Gollers with no parental data and no tombstone.
He married Elizabeth Weirich in 1875 and moved to West Virginia after 1880 until his death in 1911.
Would Dr. Barbara Gustenberg have any papers? She delivered child of John George and Katherine in Sept 1864.
