I am searching for information on the NIMERICK Family who lived in Licking then Knox county in the 1800s. Jacob NEIMRICH was listed in the 1840 census, as was William NAMRICK. In 1850, Elizabeth Nimrick, Jacob's wife, was living in Miller Township with her six sons. By 1860 they had moved to Illinois, leaving only one son, Neriah, in Knox County. Elizabeth TUSH married Jacob Nimrick in 1822 in Knox County. The name was spelled a variety of ways as evidenced by the various pieces of infomation. I believe this could be Jacob's second family, but I have no evidence. I am hoping to find his burial site in Knox County. Jacob Nimrick was in the Licking County census in 1820. Obviously that's right across the border. Michele Nimerick
