Wonderful to hear from you! Thank you for the wedding date!
Do you have any info on Dorothy and William's parents and siblings?
The Nichol/Nicholl[s] surname appears numerous times in various branches of our family tree -- haven't found any cross links yet!
The only info I have on Isabelle 'Bella' Helen McIntosh and William 'Bill' Nicholls is that they had four children before 1933 -- Robert, James, ? and ?. Bella's mother wrote to my grandfather saying that in 1954 the Nicholls were living in Dundalk, ON and in 1956 were living in Wareham, ON.

I have all the DILLEN info if you are interested in Bella's history -- there isn't much available on the McINTOSH side
