Hi Deborah, My email wont let me send today. I got your email and wanted to say lets not completely stop looking at My lines as your Nicholas. We have one Nicholas who would have been born about 1792-5. The two I sent are his son and grandson I think....??? of course not sure of any thing yet. We need his probate records. Haven't very much about him. Lets keep looking.. Belmont county isnt that far from Morgan and Muskingum counties. It could be a complete different line as the name Nicholas is often used in the German families as you are well aware of.
