Re: connection between NICKENS of Virginia and Ohio

Thanks Art!
Could you please add the other Nickens marriages to about 1820?

Edward Nickens was granted a certificate of freedom in Lancaster County court in January 1797 and probably used it to travel West. He was a "coloured man" who brought David Nickens, a Baptist Minister, to Benjamin Kern's farm in Ross County, Ohio, in 1804 or 1805. He was head of a Washington Township, Picaway County household of 6 "free colored" in 1820.

Abraham Nickens was taxable on two horses in Augusta County, Virginia in 1800 and moved to Kern's farm in 1805 with his wife Polly and children Rachel, Kissy, Betsey, Nathaniel, Bill, James, Sam and Palt.
