NICHOLS --- Looking for NATHAN NICHOLS b. 1748 "eastern shores of Va." PARENTS, siblings. Nathan owned land in the Frederick Co. area and surrounding counties. His father, name not known, was a Baptist minister, and his mother died when Nathan was very young. His father remarried and Nathan left, his family. He traveled west and settled in Winchester, where he married Hannah HODGSON in 1784. Sometime in 1795, he went to OHIO. He died in 1822. Believe he was in the Dunmore's War, with possibility of his brother. His eldest son, Philip was in War of 1812.

Nathan Nichols was a shoemaker in the earlier part of his life. There are two apprentices of Va. (1623-1800 - H. B. Gill) listed for master John Nichols/shoemaker in Lancaster County, eastern shores of Va. pp 301-323 (Lancaster Co Orders 7).

CLARKSON - ADAM - GAINES --- I am looking for information on my CLARKSON/ADAM/GAINES family I have found a probate listing for James CLARKSON d. 1824 with Joseph and Richard list as his excutors. Richard dies shortly and Joseph is his excutor too. These men could be either sons or brothers. James comes to America from Blackley, Manchester, England in 1777. and marries Mary ADAMS in 1778. How would I go about finding more about this family in Essex Co.? Thanks for your time

EVANS - HENLEY - McGUFFEE - McGUIRE - PAGETT --- Susannah Pagett shows up in court records of Essex Co., Va. when her "will" was dated on 11 July 1698, Essex Co., Va. She was married apparently three times...(1) Evans, (2) McGuire, (3) John McGuffee. Susannah apparently had children: John, Thomas, Benjamin and Elizabeth Evans; Phillip McGuire; and Susannah, Sarah, John and Ephraim McGuffee.

I would love to hear from anyone researching this Pagett line with information on Susannah and any of the marriages and or children listed above. I descend from Susannah and John McGuffee through their son John McGuffee who married Jane Henley. Thanks so much.
