Jacob Nist I believe was founder of Seattle Box Company which is still in business in Seattle. In fact, the governor once declared a Nist day in Washington. Michael Nist, one of the executives has a son named Jacob Nist as do I.
Most Nist's are from Canton, Ohio where two brothers from Germany arrived in 1860's and changed the name from Niest or Neist. They were from southern Germany. Each brother had 12 children. Michael Nist of Seattle Box and I are decendants of the opposite original brothers. Thus all Nists are related from the original two brothers. There are pages of Nists in the Canton telephone directory.
