NICHOLS BLOODLINES FOR DUMMIES

JUST KIDDING... but hey it needs a catchy title...

After years of struggling to connect the names on my family tree, I have found a number of bloodlines that arent mine... As it turns out the various lines may not have a common ancestor in the last 18000 years or so... That said, I felt like all the people out there connecting people to the wrong lines may need a bit of help, so...

Thanks to the folks at THE NICHOLS SURNAME PROJECT, sorting out the mysteries is not completely impossible any more...

NICHOLS SURNAME PROJECT

Y DNA is passed down from father to son to grandson and so forth and so establishing a positive paternity is a lot easier these days.

THOMAS NICHOLS of PA. who married MARY LUDFORD came from England to Pennsylvania with his family and became the immigrant ancestor of his line. His haplogroup is R-U152. So the male descendants of Thomas would have the same bloodline.


THOMAS of PA. IS NOT DESCENDED FROM THOMAS OF PLYMOUTH who married REBECCA JOSSELYN as he is not the same blood type. THOMAS OF PLYMOUTH is

I-M253.   


JOHN NICHOLS who married MARTHA PAYNE is from my line, R-CTS1571, and so cannot be the son of JOHN NICHOLS of Ireland who married BARBARA MCCOOMB and is from haplogroup I-M223.  

THOMAS NICHOLS of RHODE ISLAND married HANNAH
GRIFFIN. He is from HAPLOGROUP R-L257.

JOHN NICHOLS of CAROLINE VA. who married MARY OWEN was from HAPLOGROUP  R-P312 and not the husband of BARBARA MCCOOMB.  

SGT. FRANCIS NICHOLS of STRATFORD, CONN. married FRANCES WIMARKE. He is from HAPLOGROUP
G-S2808.

The key to a reliable connection is evidence. Dont just add what somebody else has added... fact check and confirm...  DNA is the tell tale tool of the modern family historian, use it when you can.

A TREE GROWS ON ANCESTRY

When I first started my tree I didnt think it would go very far. My parents knew the names of their grandparents of course and that was about it.
So when I put in the first four generations of my tree, I thought it was over. Then I got a leaf; my first hint... A cousin had already built a tree about one of my ancestors before me... Since then, I have had hundreds of hints and found hundreds of cousins, I never knew I had, and it all started with a little leaf....
Thank you Ancestry for helping me plant a seed that blossomed into a family tree... and for testing my DNA and finding over five hundred cousins on Ancestry with clues and trees of their own. Together we are breaking through walls and solving mysteries.

Doctor Albert Nichols
My grandpa's brother was named Doctor in hopes that he would become successful in life. The same way that his brother was named Banks. Doc was born in Floyd County, Virginia about 1911 and died in Roanoke County in 1980. He was a farmer in 1940 and married to Mary Blair Hale.
Rest in Peace Doc...

Clydia Emma Nichols 1915 -1916 #FamilyTreeTuesday


Clydia Emma Nichols 1915 - 1916

A recent find in my search for the Roots, is my great aunt Clydia, who never made it to a census record because of TB. Clydia was my grandpa's sister who was born in December of Nineteen Fifteen and died a few days later in Nineteen Sixteen. Over a hundred years ago. She was never recorded in a Census and might never have been remembered today without her birth and death records. Clydia's death certificate was shared on Facebook by a friend and fellow genealogist named Rena Worthen who is basically the expert on Floyd Virginia Records. Thanks again Rena.

Clydia appears to be buried with her parents at the old Nichols farm in Floyd, somewhere near the Blue Ridge Parkway. She died of Tuberculosis at the age of Twenty Nine days. May she rest in peace.

Remember the Census doesnt tell the whole story so keep searching and researching and keep climbing the family tree. See you in the tree.
