I wanted to let you know I read your notes on the history of the Amicks of Nicholas County, WV and loved reading about my family's history. My father, Ray Samuel Amick was the first born to Albert Luther Amick and Freda Virginia Tomlin on November 9,1924 in Minden, WV. Albert was the son of Samuel Amick for whom my father was named. Over many years I recall my dad speaking of the many people you mentioned in your article. It was so refreshing to see it all put down in black and white. Not growing up in WV as my parents moved from Oak Hill in 1964 to AZ, we had the privledges of summer vacation trips back to WV to visit relatives. Many trips were out to the country, Runa to visit relatives and of course our family cemetry. Thus many of the names you mentioned very familiar. Thank you for your research and for posting this information on my family history. It made my day!!
