The old photos you were talking about (Gpa, Gma Nist)interested me as I am searching for the famiy of Jacob M. Nist 1839-1907. He moved to Seattle, WA around 1878 and became founder/owner of the Seattle-Tacoma Box Company. It is still a Nist family owned business, in 2000. Jacob was born in Lousivile, Kentucy. He married Mary Ann Wagner in 1806 in Pittsburg. Their children: Michael, George, Jacob John, Aloysius, John, Joseph, Anna all born in Pittsburg.
Jacob was the son of Joseph Nist and Catherine (Minch), both immigrants from Germany. If you have any info - please e-mail.Thank You for your time.Linda
