Hi Christine,

You may not remember me. I am Mark's daughter. I was looking at this site and found your post. I have a little information that may help you.

In my baby book, my mother recorded the following names: Alsace Lorraine Nicklow (NaNa) - Parents: Wilber Warren Nicklow & Leah Maria Searing.

Parents(?) of Wilber Nicklow: Samual Nicklow & Lidia Hughes.

Parents(?) of Leah Searing: Thomas Quinn & Sarah Elizabeth Searing.

It's not totally clear the way it is written.

I clearly remember being told that Leah was part Cherokee Indian, but I am not sure if it was on her mother's or her father's side. My Dad can't even remember. I also remember your aunt Lorraine having an old picture with one of the Searing women who married into the family of Abraham Lincoln. I don't know who has the picture now--maybe Tammy or Jill.

If you find out anything, I would be interested to know. Good Luck!

Grandma and Grandpa Nicklow

Hi Marie, of course I remember you. How have you been doing? Great I hope. I have divorced since I last saw you, at Bill's funeral.
Who would have guessed that you would be the one to have information. My Mom doesn't know much. Thank you so much sweetie. Do you get to see your Mom much, next time you see her be sure to tell her hello for me. I think of her often. Please e-mail me at so that I can tell you some dates. Do you have Tammy's phone #, can you let me know soon. Love, Christine

My name is Tasha. I was born April 5, 1983. I recently turned 18. I am looking for my biological father, Robert Dean Nicklow. He lived in York PA....he should be about 36ish right now....If anyone has any information on him...please let me know. I just want to hear his voice. I have not seen him since I was 4 or 5...I dont really remember him at all.

Lets see...Im trying to think of anymore information that may be helpful. He had a mother named grace. I think his dads name was Larry, but he passed when i was really small. His parents had a farm in Somerset i believe....One of his brothers was name wilburt....I called him Uncle Willbie...I think he had one or two more brothers that I cant recall. His girlfriend ( my mother) was Maria Leonard. I think thats all I know. Oh yeah grace (his mom) worked at the peppermint patty plant.

If you can help me PLEASE E-Mail me
