Bio and Links
Bio Photo Retired firefighter and amateur photographer. I love exploring the back roads with my wife and am simply amazed at the number of old cemeteries we've found...cemeteries that would be missed in the blink of an eye. History, mystery, and intrigue...

I enjoy doing volunteer photos and do my best to fulfill requests, but it does take some time and effort; a simple 'thank you' goes a long way.

133333274 Wanton Nichols
Regarding your message Re: Wanton Nichols, I agree, it does look like "22", with a calculated birth date of about 1813

However, for some reason Fanny Dorman the wife of the Wanton born in 09/19/1776 in West Greenwich, RI, son of William Nichols and Sarah Hall, is linked to THIS Wanton as her husband?

Please read the following bio of their son, Russell, who was born in 1812, making it a statistical impossibility for Fanny to be married to a man born in 1813 :-)

Wanton's son Wanton was born before Russell is seen in Wisconsin as late as 1870, so it's not him either.

Of the other, elder Nichols brothers of Wanton born 1776 that moved to this area, none had a son Wanton that is recorded. (Namely, his brothers Schibnah and Ishmael.)

So, either we have a mystery Wanton, or a gravestone error.

Eldest brother Maze, born 1762 , is a possible father for this Wanton, and is buried nearby at the Abandoned Nichols Cemetery.
