Mary, I don't have any info on Winnie's parents. She was my gggrandmother. She and Lazarus were the parents of my ggrandfather, Dudley Creed. His daughter Alice Creed was my grandmother, she married Sewell Portis. We went to the White Plains Baptist Church cemetary today. That is where Winnie and Lazarus are buried. There were a lot of Nichols buried there, but I couldn't figure it out. That is about an hour and a half drive from my house. We are going back in the spring. I am going to put a post on the Nichols genforum to see if anyone can help. In the meantime if you find out who her parents were please let me know.
