Subject: Joseph Nisbet
I'm hoping someone can help me with my search for Nisbet ancesters going back to Ireland. My mother was a Nisbet. I've traced her back to John Nisbet, born around 1824 in County Monaghan in Ireland. John lived and died in Scotland and was married to Margaret Bailiff (another mystery!) John's father was Joseph, who was obviously in County Monaghan at some stage. any help or advice would be greatly appreciated

Subject: interested in putting together my family tree
I have been told that I am a descendant of John Nisbet who came to Oklahoma from Scotland. I think he and his brothers came over together and he ended up in Texas. For some reason they split up, or at least he did. Trying to find out why and where the others went. Would like to find my distant relatives. Seems impossible though. I live in Waco,Tx, my great grandpa was Marvin Nisbet, grandpa was Lee Oran Nisbet, and my father is Alan Nisbet.

Subject: Dr. JD Nisbet or Nesbitt
I am trying to find the names of my greatgrands on my mother's side. My grandmothers name was Minnie Lee Nesbitt. She was born in SC, USA around 1896 & died in Greenville, SC in 1972.I think she had 2 brothers, Dr. Charles Nesbitt. He graduated from Wofford College & became a professor there.What is confusing is that I have an envelope dating 1914 to a Dr. JD Nisbet.I know they are related. The letter was from Davidson College in NC & mailed to JD in New York. I do not know if the college was in error sp his last name or if they were correct and somehow these 2 possibly brothers had a diff sp of their last name.I also know that my mother was related to a Blanche Nesbitt Davis.According to a 1920 census Blanche was living with Charlie &his wife and I think it might have been his niece by the ages of everyone.If this sounds familiar to anyone, please email me. Maybe we can help each other out. Thanks!CR in TX

Subject: Girl in the Red Velvet Swing painting
Any information on painting purchased at an auction in Hershey or Lancaster area in the late 1950's. It is refered to as "Girl in the Red Velvet Swing" in appraisal document from York. Pa in 1970's. It is in pastel, about 23" (round). Beautiful young girl with wide brimmed hat, long strawberry blonde hair in what I call ringlet ( tubular ?) curls hanging over her shoulders and chest. Signed "Nesb_t", w/o date. My father Wm C RICKRODE bought it at an estate auction; in 1957 +/-. It was listed in the auction as "Girl in Red Velvet Swing". My father was speaking to someone from the auction house about it and I remember hearing about the paiting belonging a family member of the eatate.
Mainly interested in history, previous ownership, name of artist........

Subject: Gold Pocket Watch
It is my 45th birthday today and my mom Nancy Pfrimmer (Nisbet) presented me with a gold pocket watch witch was left to me by my late grandfather James Nisbet. It was given to him by his father, teh late Rev. James Nisbet (Founder of Prince Albert Sask.)The insciption on the inside of this watch reads,"presented to Mr Thomas Nisbet by the workmen in Mr. Ed Mistons employment and a few personal friends as a testimony of their approbation of his private worth and his abilities as a tradesman. Glasgow 13th December 1847.
I was wondering if anyone had any more information reguarding the history of this watch. You can contact me via email or by calling me at 204-941-9150
Thanks Paul Nisbet Pfrimmer
