Thanks for your letter – The only way I’d be able to confirm a connection is if you have a Thomas T. Nichol with a wife named Sarah and at least 5 children: 3 sons and 2 daughters. One of the daughters, Roxie Ann Nichol born Dec 4, 1860 McGregor, Michiganand d. Oct 11, 1933 in Mikado, Michigan. She married Ambrose Eugene Thompson on May 22, 1880 in Sanilac Co., Michigan. I am trying to prove a connection between the Thompson family of the Scugog Twp., Ontario County, Ontario and my Dillon[en] family. Ambrose’s mother was supposedly a Rosann Dillon d/o Peter and Lavinia Dillon – my great-great-grandparents. A number of families from my tree moved from Ontario to Michigan and some returned to Canada – Ontario and later Saskatchewan.
My Dillons date back to at least 1851 in Scugog – the Thompsons show up on the 1861 Assessment Rolls but I did not find any Nichols on the 1851 Census for Scugog [I have transcribed the whole township]. Interestingly enough, Peter and Lavinia’s grandchild, Isabelle Helen McIntosh b. November 2, 1905 married William Nicholls about 1925, likely in the Grand Valley area of Wellington County, ON. They had one daughter and 4 sons – two of whom were Robert and James.

We should stay in touch as our research continues in hopes that some ‘back door’ info surfaces to prove the Nichol/Thompson and/or Thompson/Dillon connections.
Again, thanks for your letter, Carol Dillen Linden
