Am seeking any information (esp. parents)about my great, great grandmother, Janetta F. D. BLACKISTON [a.k.a BLOXTON, BLOXOM][1816-1862]. She m. James NICOLS [1795-1859] in Talbot Co., MD 14 Feb 1833. I believe she was the daughter of Samuel BLACKISTON of Kent Co., MD who d. ca.1830. When Janetta married, her marriage was announced in the Centreville, Q.A., MD newspaper. Janetta's first child, my great grandfather, was named Samuel Fernandis NICHOLS (the 'H' in NICHOLS was added this generation). FERNANDIS probably was the family name of Janetta's mother. The FERNANDIS family of Charles Co., MD descend from Pedro FERNANDIS who reportedly came to MD from Portugal via England.
