NICHOLS ⁄ YORK
I think my ggrandfather & ggrandmother were marriage in Aledo, Mercer Co. IL. about 1873. His name was Robert H. Nichols b. about 1849 (probably from Iowa) and hers was Elizabeth ("Ellen") York. She was born Nov. 2, 1851 in Aledo. Her father's name may of been Joshua York. I need to confirm the marriage took place in Mercer Co. and who he listed as his father and mother on the marriage certificate. Also I would like any info on Elizabeth York and her parents & etc. They both died and were buried in Jefferson Co., Iowa. Thanks to anyone who could help me put this piece of my genealogy puzzle together. Terry
