Topic: David Newton Nicholson & Nora Davis
From: Linda Ramsey lindanick2@msn.com
Date: Thursday, October 14, 1999 03:21 PM

David Newton Nicholson married Nora Davis in Woods County, OK Territory, July 9, 1895, have copy of marriage certificate. They had five children, three of whom reached maturity: Ellis, born in Kansas, August, 1896; Arthur, born in OK Territory, September, 1898; Willie Willis, born February 19, 1911, in Texas. Suspect that they lived so close to the OK/Kansas border that they may have left information in both. They moved to Texas, and then to Paris, Arkansas, where they lived the remainder of their lives. Suspect Native American ancestry for David, due to physical appearance and family tradition. Seeking any information on David and Nora, parents, siblings, etc. Only sibling known for David named John. No information known about parentage of either David or Nora. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Please e-mail me as I do not check forums daily.
