Hi. I am looking for information concerning the Nickerson families of Cameron and Potter Counties. This family moved to PA in 1869/70, as they are in PA in the 1870 census with their youngest child being 1 yr old and born in Maine. The following information is what I have for this family AFTER their move to PA. I have the full genealogy of this family prior to the move.
William Nickerson b. 17 Aug 1819/20 Belfast, Waldo Co., ME. William m.26 Nov 1839 in Corinna ME to Abigail Burgess, who was b. 29 Sep 1823, Corinna, Penobscot Co., ME.
I find the family in 1870 Census Beech Creek, Clinton Co., PA. In 1880, William and son James are living in Wharton TWP, Potter Co., PA. Abigail died 17 Jan 1897 in Wharton and is buried in the Wharton Cemetery.
William and Abigail had the following children that went with them to PA: Elisabeth, Abigail, Eliza, George W., Aaron, M.Rosbeth. Four children remained in Maine.
I would love to correspond with anyone connected with this family.
