I'm not sure who to reply to?This looked like a connection of some sort.We know Willam and Genny(?)born in New York moved to Michigan in the 1800's.They had 5 children and William died in Tawas MI.One of his sons were Guy Nivison who settled in Clare, MI for a short period and had Gerald Nivison.Guy left his wife and child to move to California with the railroads.We believe he started a family there.
My nephew is doing a class project.He needs to find the origin of Nivison. Because, Guy left when Gerald was very young there was no contact with the Nivison family. Gerald has been dead for over 35 years ,although, he knew very little he was are only link.Ifyou could help us we would greatly appreciate it.
