There is conflicting information regarding the husband of Mary Hoge, daughter of Solomon Hoge and Ann Rollings; Isaiah Nichols or Isaac Nichols?
~ Kinzie et al. have Isaac Nichols, son of Isaac Nichols and Margery Cox as the husband of Phebe Fairhurst, and father of Rachel Fairhurst Nichols. Other sources have Mary Hoge, daughter of Solomon Hoge and Ann Rollings as the wife of this Isaac Nichols.
~ Kinzie et al. have have Isaiah Nichols, son of James Nichols and Elizabeth Sharp as the husband of Mary Hoge.
Genealogical Tree, Solomon Hoge Branch
(Cincinnati, Ohio: MacBrair & Sons) by Lucina Hoge states:
" Mary Hoge, born March 7th 1765 married Isaiah (?) Nichols and went to Kentucky and all trace lost of them".
While the scan I have of Lucina's tree is barely legible, the last letter in her husband's given name has an ascender and could only be an "h". Or a "b, d, k or l". None of the letters between the first and last have an ascender or descender. His surname is legible enough that it can definitely be stated it is "Nichols".
The Family of Hoge
(Greensboro, North Carolina: Joseph J. Stone & Company, 1927, 149 pages) on page 121 states:
"d-978 Mary b. March 7, 1765; m Isaac Nickols."
Neither Lucina's tree nor The Family of Hoge
The families of Thomas and Mary (Ludford) Nichols
(Buchanan, Michigan: unknown, 1999, 59 pgs.) states:
Hannah (Ingledue) Janney once used her influence to persuade Isaac to reinstate his daughter Mary in his will. He had disinherited her because she loved music, singing and dancing.
... 2. Mary Nichols in 1773 married Solomon Hoge at Goose Creek. Five children. They removed from Hopewell Monthly Meeting to Westland.
"7. Isaac Nichols born in Loudon County. Married late in life Mary Hoge. One daughter Rachel. His estate probated February 9 1829 amounted to $100,000."
... 8. Samuel Nichols married late in life Ann Hoge, sister of the above Mary Hoge. No issue. Died 1825.
It shows Isaac to be the son of Isaac Nichols & Margery Cox, son of Thomas Cox and Margery Ludford.
"Descendants of John (Sir John) Hoge by Ross B. Kenzie shows the following intermarriages:
Children of Solomon Hoge and 1st wife Ann Rollings:
~ Ann (Nancy) Hoge (1761-1829) married George Nichols (1756-1812)
~ Isaac Hoge (1763-1838) married Elizabeth Nichols (1767-1836)
~ Mary Hoge (1765-1784) married Isaiah Nichols ( -1832).
"Descendants of Thomas Nichols" by Ross B. Kenzie shows:
Children of James Nichols & Elizabeth Sharp:
~ George Nichols (1756-1812) married Ann (Nancy) Hoge (1761-1829)
~ Elizabeth Nichols (1767-1836) married Isaac Hoge (1763-1838)
~ Isaiah Nichols ( -Aft. 1832) married Mary Hoge (1765- )
Children of Isaac Nichols & Margery Cox:
~ Isaac Nichols, Jr. ( -1826) married Rachel Fairhurst Nichols (1780-1827).
It shows this Rachel married to James Hoge (1785-1828). [It also shows Rachel Hoge, married John B. Crenshaw, as the daughter of both James Hoge (1785-1828) & Rachel Fairhurst Nichols (1780-1827) and James and his 2nd wife Hannah Janney (1787-1869).]
~ Thomas Cox and Margery Ludford were prominent, pioneer, founding Quakers.
~ The Quakers keep very good records about these things.
~ Isaac Nichols married Mary Hoge was rich and prominent.
~ Lucina Hoge's tree indicates Mary's husband was named "Isaiah" or something similar. But the last letter definitely has an ascender. It also states they moved to Tennessee. Isaac Nichols will was probated in Loudon County.
~ Hoge, Nichols and Related Families
, which I assume is the source for Kenzie and most other Hoge/Nichols genealogists, was published in 1969. The families of Thomas and Mary (Ludford) Nichols
was published in 1999. Further, it is focused very narrowly on this family, indicating it could have been published to set the record straight.
