From Planted Seeds to Maturity

That's strange: half my ancestors are WOMEN!

In my last blog I mentioned that I would look at the Females in the Nickisson Family Tree

We have (to Date) 379 persons and of those:
  • 176 are females
  • 82 were born a Nickisson
Should women have children after 35?           
No, 35 children are enough
  • Most Popular Nickisson name: Unlike the Nickisson Males there is no particular name that seems to have been passed on through the Generations. There are just two each of the following names: Diane - Elizabeth - Hannah - Irene - Janet - Julia - Laura and Rachel. The most popular names in all the females in the family tree is Rachel and Susan (5 each)
There was a woman who was pregnant with twins, and shortly before they were due, she had an accident and went into a coma. Her husband was away on business, and unable to be reached. While in the coma, she gave birth to her twins, and the only person around to name her children was her brother.
When the mother came out of her coma to find she had given birth and that her brother had named the twins, she became very worried, because he wasn’t a very bright guy. She was sure he had named them something absurd or stupid.
When she saw her brother she asked him about the twins.

He said, “The first one was a girl.”
The mother: “What did you name her?!?”
Brother: “Denise!”
The Mother: “Oh, wow, that’s not bad! What about the second one?”
Brother: “The second one was a boy.”
The Mother: “Oh, and what did you name him?”
Brother: “Denephew.”

  • The oldest female Nickisson: 88 years and still going strong

Did you hear about the 88 year old woman who talked herself out of a speeding ticket by telling the young officer that she had to get there before she forgot where she was going?
