About Our Family Research

I have been doing research on my family history for over 30 years and still haven't found all of them. There aren't many left in my family except decendants as I am 88 years old but still enjoy keeping busy with family history. Some of my grandchildren seem interested also so I try to help them as much as I can. My father, John William Nichols was a miner. His mother ran a boarding house for miners as her husband was killed in a mine accident leaving her with five small children to raise. My mother grew up on a farm where my grandfather had a large apple orchard. Her mother's name waas Ruth Emmaline Thomas and her father was James Lee Thomas. I was born in a little mining town by the name of Portirico. It doesn't exist any more.Ruby Steele.I am researching the family names of Nichols, Wallace< Coffelt, Thomas,and Fahringer.
