I am having some difficulty finding information on my grandfather's family. In the 1920's and before they were known as Nichol. After the early 1930's, some changed the name to McNichol. There is whispering in the family that it was because the boys in the family were in alot of trouble and they were trying to hide. But no one knows for sure. The information I have is (going recent on)
Harry Eugene McNichol (born Nichol) Born 5/27/1928 in Sandyville, Ohio died 7/21/1995 in Canton, Ohio married JoAn Haynes
Harry's father is Harry Nichol (also known as McNichol) born 2/10/1905 in Paint, Pa Died 4/17/1985 Dayton, Pa married Viola Zentz from Canton, Ohio Had three children
Harry Sr's father is Robert F. Nichol born 6/16/1865 in Chambersburg, Pa died 5/3/1948 in East Canton, Ohio married Nancy Isabell Benson (went by Bell or Isabell) 11 children David, James, Mary, Dora Ann, Sarah Edith, Blanche, Harry, Hattie, Robert, Sadie, Edward. (those are in order, oldest on.)
Robert's father is David Nichol born Feb 1829 death? married Maise Tarman or Eliza (?) Conflicting accounts of who David's wife is. lived in Pa. Census records claim PA as birth state, but no records of him prior to 1870 Two children Maude and Robert
The family always believed they were Irish, but I can't seem to nail it down. Any help would be appriciated. Contact email is FaeryLove79@yahoo.com.
