WELCOME! Our list of surnames expands and expANDS and EXPANDS! The history of the Nichols & Quick families centers around Marlboro County, South Carolina and Scotland County, North Carolina--areas just miles apart. In Fact, the county signs are back-to-back coming in from Bennettsville, SC.
If your ancestors came from Marlboro County, SC or the Richmond-Scotland-Moore Counties of NC, it is more likely, than none, that one or more of your ancestors are listed on this site.
We welcome other Quick Groups who use this page to gather information on their family genealogy. We are glad that we can be of help!
Now this is what I know about my section of this HUGE QUICK & NICHOLS FAMILY .... my great grandfather was Alex NICHOLS (1857)who married Winnie ADAMS (1864)and parented nine children: John B (1876), Martha (1877), William Walter (1880), Randolph (1881), Basitta (1883) Martin (1886), Benjamin Harrison (1889), Lucinda (1893) and Eliott (1895). Winnie was a mid- wife who delivered most of the Black children in the Gibson Area.
Adam QUICK (1831) married Farabee ADAMS (1856), the daughter of Silas & Margaret (Easter) ADAMS. Adam & Farabee parented 10 children: Sweetvine (1885), Barby (aka Bubba 1886), Mietta (aka Pittie (1888), Glenn (1889), Janie (1890), Robert (aka RT 1891), Harmon (1892), Beatrice (1894), John Arthur (aka Jack 1897), and Lozzie Mae (1901).
The NICHOLS & QUICK families are linked with more surnames than I have the space to mention. One of Silas ADAMS descendants, Alberta "Coot" ADAMS Quick, a daughter of Noah ADAMS died at the ripe old age of 106 years old! Boy! How I wish that I had discovered that she was in the family earlier in this research! The things she could have told me!!!
Mary Liles STUART, a daughter of Carey and Carrie YORK Liles, always steered me in the right direction. She lived to be 99 years, 11 months and 28 days and her mind was as sharp as a tack! All of us have information that can be shared.
Everything on this site, and our other sites, covers our families after 1870! If you have some free time, consider helping with this family project. As your family grows, inform us so that their names can be added to the family database. Would hate for your child to run across this site one day and discovered that their name was not included. If you have family pictures, share them with us. I will send them back to you by return mail--promise..or you can upload them directly to the site.
Remember, it takes each of us, individually and collectively, to make this family complete! While you are on the computer, remember to check out the other sites--a link appears at the bottom of this page! Get involved. See how much information we can gather for YOUR FAMILY!
We email and “snail” mail a newsletter "The NICHOLS/QUICK NEWSLETTER" twice a year to keep us connected. Because of the increases in stamp prices, we will no longer be able to "SNAIL MAIL" the newsletter. Email me if you are NOT presently receiving a copy. Email me if you would like to have your name included in this website's ADDRESS BOOK. Come on y'all--stay connected!!!
Be sure and sign the guestbook before leaving!
