I have found my gg-grandparents and some of his siblings. My g-grandfathers sister Mary Nickson married a George Ratcliff from Derby, Derbyshire, England. They migrated to the U. S. in 1857 ending up in Perry Park, CO. To make a long story short finding her ultimatly lead to her parents, Andrew Nickson and Zipporah Pickering (m. in 1823), and five children with christening records in Cheshire. It shows my grandfather christened in 1829(I show his birthday as Nov. 25, 1830), Anne Nickson in 1833, Mary Nickson in 1836, William Nickson in 1838, Eli Nickson in 1841 and records showing his death in 1846. I also have Zipporahs death as 1873.
I now have Andrew and Zipporah to find parents for if I can? Zipporah Pickering seems to be a rather unusual name. That may help.
