I have 2 different stories of the Nivisons coming to America. One is that "My GG grandfather came from Scotland about 1750 and bringing with him one son only whose name was John about 10 years of age at the time. His other children were left in Scotland.The GG grandfather died shortly after he arrived in America leaving the boy John." There is more to this story. This I have from "A. Nivison" family Bible.
Next story is "Widow Nivison arrived in America with 2 sons."(no date) There is a sailor's needle" mentioned in this story. This was taken from a large Nivison family file and had no mention of any one born in Scotland other then Nathan. The reseacher was living in Kansas in May 2001.
Now can any one tell me if these 2 familys are the same family and if so, where did the said GGGrandfather leave his son John and did the "Widow" Nivison and 2 sons ever get together and where.
The dates I have are not connection to the time frames. But the mother and mother-in-law some how connect to the same person in Scotland/England.
