Although a considerable amount of my own original research has gone into this project, I also must acknowledge the help, hints, clues and encouragement that I have received from others. Without their influence and help, this project would never have been brought to its present state. Some of those on whom I have leaned are:
Lyle F. Stewart (1903 - 1981)
Frances, a sister of Lyle above, kept meticulous records of family births, marriages, deaths, and causes of deaths. Her daughter Dorene has carried on the record-keeping and has generously provided many of these records for the Nickerson/Nixon genealogy.
I would also like to thank the countless others whose hints I may have forgotten which nevertheless may have lead to some major find. Please forgive my oversight if I failed to recall your contribution.
