My husband's grandmother was Viva Fay Ninemires.I have managed to track down her grandparents and that is as far as I can pin down that line of the family.
Her father was John Thomas Ninemires (b. 20 Jan 1872), mother was Anna Maude Belfield (b. 1874).JT's father was Jessie Jackson Ninemires (b. 28 Jun 1844) married to Elizabeth Ann Miles (b. 20 Dec 1847).Jessie's father was Jesse Ninemyres (b. 12 Apr 1814), married to Sarah Brown (b. 16 Jul 1816).HIS mother was Mary but I can find no listing of a husband nor can I find a maiden name.
I have good info from Jessie Jackson Ninemires down.Everyone before him is sketchy.
I'm not even sure where they would have emigrated from, though the name does sound Germanic to me.
