Generation 1
JAMES M. D. NICKLE



James Nickel and Hannah Burch were married in 1822 in Bath County, Kentucky. They lived in Kentucky until about 1828 when they moved to Indiana. According to the 1850 Iowa census, they and the children were:

James M. (b. 1798 in Kentucky)
Hannah W. (b. 1801 in Virginia)
Joseph, b. 1826 in Kentucky
James, b. 1832 in Indiana
Sarah, b. 1834 in Indiana
JOHN S.B., b. 8 February 1837 near "New Maysvill", Putnam County, Indiana
Elizabeth, b. 1839 in Indiana
William, b. 1841 in Indiana.

James and Hannah left Indiana for Iowa in 1845. They lived together in Iowa until at least 1855.

The first Church of God families to settle "in this Territory" (around Trenton, Iowa) was in 1837. Others followed who settled near Trenton. They began holding prayer meetings in their homes and inviting ministers to preach for them. Joseph Barton was probably the first one to preach for these people.

In 1855, divorce proceedings take place in Henry County, Iowa.

WORK STILL TO DO

Re. John Burch Jr. - GET "Final Pension Payment File" - State of Kentucky.

Locate and research a Dabney family history: Frances Dabney & John Maupin; and a Ballard family history: Polly Burch & Carr Maupin (father: Matthew Maupin; mother: Lucy Ballard). Find source for marriage date. Polly's given name was probably Mary.

Correspondence, 1989, between myself and Beverly Oliver, Fairland, Indiana.
She sent land record data on Henry Nichols 1828, Stephen Nichols (Melinda) 1830, Joseph B. Nickle 1831, Henry Nickle (Sarah) 1832, James Nichols (Hester Ann) 1836. Also, a Fletcher & McCarty sold a lot in Shelbyville, Indiana, to Hannah Nickle in 1850. This is most likely not our Hannah Nickle. Letters in my Nickle file.

Norford, William L. Marriages of Albemarle County and Charlottesville, Virginia - 1781-1929. Charlottesville VA: Jarman Printing Co., 1956.
Look up John Burch-Judith Epperson; John Burch-Jane Epperson; Sarah Burch-Edmond Oakley; Hannah Burch-Dillard Sandridge; Polly Burch-Bennett Maupin (par. Matthew & Lucy Ballard); anyone Nickle.

POSSIBLE LINK W/ THOMAS BURCH AS FATHER

For father of John Burch Sr. Albemarle County VA.
Thomas Burch could be the father of John Burch Sr. See Virginia Wills and Administrations, 1632-1800, by Torrence. Albemarle co Virginia 1776W, p. 61.

Thomas Burch Will, Proved January 1776. Albemarle Co VA Will Book #2, 1752-1785. [Reel 34, pp. 333-35.]

See SLC FHL Film #1884528, or Microfiche Batch #7516305, Sheet 90.
Will, 17 Jan 1774, Albemarle Co VA. Albemarle Co VA Will Index 1744-1930. [Contains no reference to Thomas Burch Will 1774.]

Thomas Burch (Birch) had a land grant in 1730 at Goochland. [Goochland was the parent county of Albemarle County, formed in 1744.]

Thomas Burch of Caroline Co VA, in 1763, bought (with R. Brame), from Francis Jerdone, 400 acres on Ivy Creek, a part of the Michael Holland tract, of which another part is the present Farmington. He d. 1775, leaving his widow Sarah and 14 children, among whom were a John (no further mention) and a Richard (mar. Lucy Barksdale in 1791). He at one time owned the (as-of-1901) plantation called Ivy Cottage, and at one time operated the famous Michie's Old Tavern. There was also a dtr. Jean Stapleton, who mar. John Rodes, son of the first Clifton Rodes. This Rodes (or Rhodes) name is seen in prominent Virginia Burch resources, e.g. land documents. See History of Albemarle Co VA, by Rev. Edgar Woods (Charlottesville VA, 1901) pp. 155-56. Xerox copy in my files. This information is taken from Marilu Smallwood?s ?Birch Book? (1957) on p. 234.

NOTE: For father of John Burch Sr. (RIN #466).
See Note #2 above at "Research-Ideas". Looking for John Burch Sr.'s parents, there was a Thomas Burch (who had a son, John Burch) who owned land which, by 1901, was a plantation called Ivy Cottage. The above property of Epperson bordered land on "Ivy Hill". It is possible that Ivy Hill is where the Burch property was located, which in 1901 was known as Ivy Cottage, along Ivy Creek. Hence, this may explain the close relationship between Burch and Epperson that produced two generations of Burches marrying into the Epperson family.

OTHER POSSIBILITIES

Re. the father of John Burch Sr. A JOHN BURCH was married to one Elizabeth Lanier (b. after 1724). She was still Elizabeth Burch at the time of her father's will (written January 1742/43 and proven May 1743). Hence, Elizabeth married John Burch prior to January 1742/43. Burch died in 1753 (see Brunswick Co VA Order Book 5, pg. 88). She rem. Thomas Croft in 1754 and had at least one child by Croft. No mention is found of children by Burch, though she was married to him from at least 1743-1753. Reference for all the above is "Genealogies of Virginia Families, Vol. II G-P (Baltimore MD: Genealogical Publishing Co., 1981) pp. 568-73, 578-79, 582. Xerox copies in my files.

Re. the father of John Burch Sr. A John Burch of St. John's Parish, King William Co VA, planter, sells 400 acres in Amelia, to Ashley Johnson, planter, of St. Paul's Parish, Hanover Co. The deed is dated 15 July 1745 (see Deed Book 2, pg. 212). Appearing as an entry in Virginia Colonial Abstracts, by Beverly Fleet (Baltimore MD: Genealogical Publ. Co., 1988) Vol. II, p. 458. Xerox copy in my files.

re father of John Burch Sr.:
(1) John Burch, b. 7 Mar 1722 in Prince George Co VA; father Richard Burch; mother Jane. See SLC FHL Film #1396182; or Microfiche Batch #8609305, Sheet 60.
(2) John Burch ( b. 11 Jun 1722, Bristol Parish, Prince George Co VA). See SLC FHL Film #1036590, item 2; or Batch C 505661.
(3) John Burch (b. 1770 in Brunswick Co VA); father Samuel Burch; mother Elizabeth Holt. See SLC FHL Film #1260717; or Microfiche Batch #8016803, Sheet 56.

LONG SHOTS

Research a John Nickell (from Bath Co KY) and his wife, Civilar Jane (from IL). They were parents of Alexander W. Nickell (of Scotch-Irish descent). Alexander mar. Lydia Davis on 24 Dec 1863. He served as Sheriff of Johnson County. See Early Families of Eastern and Southeastern Kentucky and their Descendants, by William C. Kozee (Baltimore: Genelaogical Publishing Co., Inc., 1973) p. 167; check under "Davis Family" of Johnson City.

CEMETERY SEARCH

Montgomery Co KY -- no burials Burch or Nickle. See Mrs. Carl (Hazel) Boyd, Montgomery County Cemeteries.

U. S. Veteran's Gravesites ca 1775-2006. John Burch, Continental Line Revolutionary War (b. 18 Jan 1759; d. 1 Mar 1834). Barren County -- W. E. Bowles Cemetery, Glasgow KY 42141.
