Comments:
My grandfather was Emery Louis Nickens and my father was Raymond. We have recently lost him, Aug. 2009, and I have just recently really started tracing the Nickens family line. Just this past week we lost the last of the Emery's sons, Ronald on Sept. 15. Found this web site and it was so informational. Once I get through the funeral and things calm down once more, I would love to e-mail you with the family information I have on my father's siblings.

Earliest known Nickens ancestor John Nickens and Sally
They were from Wilson County Tennessee
Comments:
My gggrandfather was William Baldwin. He married Laura Nickens on December 27,1873 in Davidson County, Tennessee. Their son Anthony, married Fanny Sharpe. They had twin daughters, Anne and Frances Thelma. Frances, my grandmother, married Doyle Manuel Cavender on November 27, 1927 in Nashville, Tennessee. They had five children. their eldest daughter Betty Anne is my mother. She married my father Robert Gene Striplin on September 16, 1950 in Nashville.
My mother has often told me that Laura was a great beauty with beautiful black hair. She died rather early, probably in childbirth. William spent the rest of his life broken-hearted and before he died, he asked to be buried with her. When they placed him in her coffin, they noticed that Laura was well-preserved and that her hair was still a beautiful midnight black.

Earliest known Nickens ancestor Samuel Nickens(1889-1967)
They were from Tennessee
Comments:
I am looking for for my great grandfather and his wife, and have not been able to locate them succsessfully.

my father is george nickens b. may 2, 1946

his father is samuel e. nickens, the (e.) was added when he joined the army,(ss# 441-40-1715) born november 25, 1889 died februrary 1967. Samuel moved to Eldorado Oklahoma where he married Elizabeth Oleen Wilson. From what my father knows Samuel had a brother named walter,a brother named cootie, a sister maggie, and possibly others.

samuel's father's name was george nickens, and his mothers name is unknown to me. my grandfather said she was a cherokee indian who died when he was 2.

I found a George nickens in the 1900 cencus who was head of house hold with no wife listed. Their children were maggie, ruth, lunsy, dandy, sam, and lockie. this is my best guess at this time. I was hoping u would have information on this line.

thanks

Earliest known Nickens ancestor Richard Nickens
They were from OK, to Alton, IL, back to OK
Comments:
We're looking for Richard Nickens, born about 1903 in Oklahoma. He was in Alton, IL in 1922 and went back to OK about that time. He had a brother, Joe, and a sister, Nellie. His mothers name was Jane. They were African American and possible Native American (which is really cool, my husband can grow a kickin' fu man chow!LOL).
We just started looking, so we don't know anything else about them. Does any of this sound familier to you?
We do have a family crest, it is two red roses on either side of a money pouch.
We're looking on the internet and are surprises at how many Nickens' there are.
Check out and post your message on
www.genforum.genealogy.com/nickens/
Let us know if you find anything.
Sincerely, Bonafide
