Re: Nihell Family of Grass Valley, Calif
Your Nihell could be NiHill, a Co. Clare, Ireland, name. My G-Grandmother was Anna Nihill, born 1854, in O'Callaghan's Mills, Co. Clare. She moved to Manchester, CT, USA, about 1870. Anna married my G-Grandfather, William Geehan, in 1876. Anna's father was John NiHill, and she had a sister, Bridget, and a brother, Patrick NiHill. Patrick Nihill was living with William and Anna in 1880, but I don't know whatever happened to him. Hope this might help.
