|Lewis Joshua Crary
|Lewis Joshua Crary is considered the largest contributor to the Nichols family tree. His exhaustive research
into the family has been well documented with his one hundred five page, hand written journal titled
"A Genealogical Record showing the Ancestors and Descendants of David T Nichols
of Wyanet, Bureau County, Illinois".
Starting in 1883, Lewis began the journey of tracing not only his mothers (Hanna Rowena Nichols) family history,
he also covered the Crary family history as well.
