We are uncertain who the parents are of my Nicholas Here is what I have on him: 1. Nicholas BICE 1was christened2on 27 Jul 1817 in St. Allen Parish,Cornwall,Eng.. He died3on 24 Aug 1886 in Grass Valley,Nevada Co. Cal. He was buried4on 26 Aug 1886 in Elm Ridge Cemetery.
Nicholas resided51840 - 1844 in Zelah, Cornwall, England. He was counted in a census6in 1841 in Zelah, Cornwall, England. He was counted in a census7in 1850 in Wi Iowa Mineral Point. He was counted in a census8in 1870 in California, Nevada, Grass Valley.
Nicholas married11Rebecca LAMPSHIRE 9,10daughter of Thomas LAMPSHIRE and Elizabeth JOLLY on 21 Dec 1839 in St. Allen Parish,Cornwall,Eng.. Rebecca was born12about 1821 in Cornwall,England. She died13on 10 May 1876 in Grass Valley,Nevada Co. Cal. She was buried14on 12 May 1876 in Elm Ridge Cemetery.
Rebecca joined religion15Methodist.
He had a sister Mary of whom we know the following for sure:
1. Mary BICE 1was born2about 1832 in England.
Mary was counted in a census3in 1880 in Ca Nevada, Grass Valley.
Mary married5William P. RULE 4on 2 Jul 1870 in Grass Valley,Nevada Co. Cal. William was born6about 1829 in England.
William was counted in a census7in 1880 in Ca Nevada, Grass Valley.
We THINK she may be d/o Constance and Nicholas.We THINK our Nicholas was s/o Nicholas christened 1781 and Mother was Elizabeth May.Nicholas b. 1817 was married to Rebecca Lampshire as Nicholas May.We find him on 1841 Census in Cornwall, and later in US as Bice.
