Minerva B Nicholas Bible
|Title||Minerva B Nicholas Bible, Email from Kay (Nicholas) Shiery to Dwight Thompson, Dated 16 Nov 2003|
|Author||Kay (Nicholas) Shiery|
Dwight....please note: The extra dark print under 'Deaths' was written in a different handwriting. I presume it may have been written by Aunt Addie (their daughter Adalade). Also, note: she wrote Ernest's death age as 86 years, 3 months & 14 days...which figures out with his birth year as being 1838.
There is another page of births that is written which is almost idential as the one I have included here...the only difference was the oldest son's name. In one place his name is William Ernest Nicholas...and the other it is written as Ernest William Nicholas....go figure! I have absolutely no idea what the '1905....Bema....N ove 15, N o y e 15' means. Ah, the joys of working with old documents.
Oh yes, note she wrote her name under marriages as Morris! I believe Morris may have been her maiden name....I am sure she was married to a man by the name of Hastings...as soon as scanner is working I will you some papers supporting my belief. Plus...under Deaths, she mentions Emily...dying at age of 17. All right, now you have some food for thought. :) Have a fun time of going through this. I hope it prints out in the same format that I typed it. Take care. Kay
