Melick Family Genealogy Forum
Thanks for posting the bio of Nicholas E Melick. His grandfather, Nicholas Egbert Melick, 1788-1872, was my gg-gf. My g-gf, John Wesley Melick, was apparently travelling with his brother Peter, for he was also born in Hunterdon NJ, went to Marshall Co IL, then to Washington Co IA, then moved back to Henry Co IL.
One possible correction to the bio, which states that Peter was born in 1812 and lived to be 50 years of age; I believe he may have lived in NJ til 50 years of age, but SOF states that Peter died in 1878 (at 65 years of age) in Lincoln NE.
