My GGGGrandfather was John Nichols married to Cyrena Shattuck in Greenfield, Erie Co., PA on Sept. 26, 1833. According to census records which I have and the family Bible he was blacksmith born in Stratford Ct 29 Nov 1810. In 1850 census they were in Venango Twp, Erie Co, PA and in 1860 they were in Wattsburg Borough, Erie Co, PA. Their children were Harriet Elizabeth Nichols born 1834 in Ohio and married May 1, 1862 to Frederich Shattuck Hutchins in Wattsburg (listed as a teacher in 1860 census); Edward J. Nichols born May 7, 1836 in Greenfield Twp., Erie Co. and married Sarah White Oct. 5, 1865 in Erie Co.; and Nancy Agnes Nichols born Sept 5, 1842 in Greenfield Twp. (also a teacher) and married December 17, 1867 in Erie Co James Clay Williams and adopted daughter Elizabeth Amanda Stevens born Feb. 18, 1855 in Wattsburg Borough, Erie Co. PA. I am most interested in Harriet and John as they are my direct line. I would like to find records of their marriages and newspaper accounts if they exist. Teaching credentials for Harriet would be great. I have not been able to determine the names of John's parents as the CT records have not accounted for those who left. Cyrena is well documented in the Shattuck Family Genealogy which I have. John Nichols died in Bradford, McKean Co., PA on Mar 9, 1898 and was buried in the Degolia Cemetery but I have not yet found a death record or obituary. I would also be interested in any of their decendants.
