Bev, Thank you so much for the information. I was wrong in thinking that Jane was the wife of Sampson Nicholl...Catherine is the person I was looking for. I got the information on the birthplace of Sampson Nicholl and his two cousins, Andrew and Thomas, from Andrea Chapman Brigman. Her great grandfather wrote a family history that gave that information on the Nicholl's family. I do not know where the Petticrew family came from. Is your James the brother of David Petticrew? Again, thank you for your response!
