Update re Deeth General Merchandise Store & Ida Nicely

In Reply to: Deeth General Merchandise Store by Vickie Coonts of 2874

I don't know how this happened, but somewhere along the line Ida changed the spelling of her last name from Nicely to Nicley. The store she owned in Deeth was called the "I.M. Nicley General Merchandise" store (per a letter on the store's letterhead from 1912). And when she remarried after Sam Nicely died (d: 1912) to Walker, her name is Nicley.

Some other members of the Nicely (original spelling) family have also changed the spelling to Nicley, which makes it a challenge to find people. Plus you never know how it will be spelled on the old census rolls.

Anyway, I found out what happened to Ida and also the store. Thanks for all the help.
