I, too, am a direct descendant!! Hello, cousin. I was just looking to see if I could find out anyone before Isaac (which I haven't) and saw your message. Sorry I'm not any help, but it's always fun to contact someone in your extended family. Perhaps we can pool our resources? This message of yours was years ago...have you found anything yet?
My grandmother was a Nichols from Oregon. We are descended through the Ziba Bass - Ammi Sibley Nichols line and are currently back living in Oregon.
