Hi. My name is Kay Kelly and I am doing geneological research on my mother's side of my family. Her married name was Anne Hall McCoy and her maiden name was Hoff. Her parents were John B.Hoff and her mother's name was Sarah Taylor Nicolls. Sarah's parent's were Minnie Ramsey Taylor and Frederick Williams Nicolls (born Feb. 7, 1870 died May 16, 1911). Fred's parents were Gustuvas Anthony Nicolls (born at Abbey View, Thomastown, county of kilkenny, Ireland on April 3, 1817) His wife was Rosa Catherine Muhlenberg, daughter of Hon. henry A. Muhlenberg. Gustuvus Nicolls father and mother were Colonel William Dann Nicolls and his mother was Maria Graves. I have alot more info. including pictures and books about them. I am not sure if there is a relation between your family and mine. I just looked at the picture album I have and there is a Picture of a George Augustus Nicolls born 1840 died in 1908. I am not sure of the relationship - cousin, brother? Let me know if you know anything about this.
Thanks
Kay Kelly

Dear Kay,

If you ever read this message, you made a mistake on your original message. Fredrick W. Nicolls' mother was not Rosa Muhlenburg. Rosa died on May 17, 1867. Fredrick was not born until Feb. 7, 1870. Fredrick Nicolls' mother is Anne Hall Muhlenburg, G.A. Nicolls' second wife. Here is where it gets confusing. G.A.Nicolls' first wife Rosa had a brother named Henry Muhlenburg. This Henry Muhlenburg married his cousin Anne Hall Muhlenburg. They produced one child - Henry Muhlenburg. Rosa's brother (Henry Muhlenburg) died on Jan 9, 1854. G.A. Nicolls' first wife Rosa died on May 15, 1867. On Jan 28, 1869 G.A. Nicolls marries Rosa's brother's wife - Anne Hall Muhlenburg. Thus, G.A. Nicolls' becomes the step father of Henry Muhlenburg. Both G.A. Nicolls' wifes (Anne Hall Muhlenburg and Rosa Muhlenburg) share the same grandfather - Rev. Henry E. Muhlenburg.

I hope this sets the record straight. I have alot more information - including family documents. Anyone that wants to discuss the Nicolls family tree please email me at GANicolls@aol.com

I have just inherited a very large tree of the Nicolls familly dating back to 1560 and up to about 1929. I also have a copy of the family history written by William Jasper Nicolls and published privately in 1893. I'm keen to bring the tree and other details up to date and I'd be happy to share any information I have. Alistair

I am more than willing to share the information that I have to update the family tree. Since the tree is upto date until 1929, can you tell me if Gustavus Anthony Nicolls born on May 6, 1901 and died on July 5, 1921 had any offsprings? Fredrick William Nicolls born on May 26, 1906 and died on October 31, 1961 was a outstanding citizen of Reading. He was a avaid golf fan and even paid for the trophies for the Berkshire Country Club golf tornament. The trophies actually had on them "The Nicolls Trophey." I have one from the early 1950's. I have no record of Fredrick having any children. Fredrick did have two sisters and one brother (the G.A. Nicolls I asked you about).

I have been able to put together a family tree for Fredrick's sister Sara Taylor Nicolls how married John B. Hoff. They had at least one daugter Anne Hall Hoff who married a Mr. McCoy. I have more on this branch.

Can you also answer me if these two people appear in the family tree?

There are two important Edward Nicolls in British history (they could be the same person.)

Colonel Edward Nicolls was incharge of the British military campaign in Florida during the war of 1812. Although, many people do not know of his navy battle in Florida were he lost his eye; he is well know for his letter he wrote to the New Orleans Newspaper warning of the British attack and asking for the support of the local people.

The other Edward Nicolls was Lord Manor of Heaton.

I look forward to future correspondents.

According to the tree I have, Gustavus Anthony Nicolls doesn't appear to have been married, but then there are many dates missing from the tree and very few children are recorded from that generation. So I don't have that piece of information for you. One of my aims is to bring the tree up to date!! Do you have a version you can email me ? You can mail me at tree_family@hotmail.com

Do you know if Gustavus Anthony N. married, if so, to whom and when ? I only ask because it would be easy-ish to find out if there were any children from the birth registers. I live in London and could go and take a look.

Addition...

Sara Taylor Nicolls married John B. Hoff Feb 6, 1932 but my tree doesn't help any further. What details do you have ?

As for the Edward Nicolls, do you have any dates at all ?

Regards,

Alistair

my name is Margaret Nicolls Stamm, I am a relative of GANicolls I have alot of information about my mother's side of the family, but it can be very confusing because of the marriages between the nicolls and the muhlenberg's. I'm also looking to see where the hall name comes in. I know that David Sr. was in the printing business with Benjamin franklin and his son william then moved to reading to start his own printing business, but I'm not sure who he married? My mother was Anne Hall Hoff Mccoy and Her aunt's name was Anne Hall Nicolls. Please let me know
Thanks
Peg Stamm
