Has anyone found information from Northern Ireland on the NIMOCK family? I'm looking for any information that may help me to find more information about my couple great grandmother, Mary Colwell NIMOCK.
I know she came to America in June of 1887, and later in Oct of that year she married Ephraim SMALLMAN of Ellicottville, New York. Marriage may have been in Ellicottville. There were stories how she born either in Ireland or Scotland, also being born on the sea, between the two countries. I recently found her obit from 1913, where it stated she was born in Castle Rock, County Derry, Northern Ireland.
Supposedly there was a connection between NIMOCK and SMALLMAN, as the story that Mary and Ephraim were cousins. Another story from her daughter: Mary was born or lived in Londonberry with an aunt.
Colwell seems to be like a surname. Perhaps there was a connection between COLWELL and NIMOCK.
