  • Harvey Nickerson is the son of Phineas Nickerson and Jane Vincent Smith.1
  • Residence*: Harvey Nickerson lived at Fish Island, NS; after being married.1
  • Marriage*: He married Lucinda Goodwin.1
  • Anecdote*: In 1875 A newspaper account (quoted p. 43 of Source 23) tells of him making several trips in the brig HOWARD under Captain Alfred Smith of West Head CSI, freighting lumber to Welsh and US ports. He later went fishing, and liked to duck hunt with his brother John (#8102). While hunting with John and his father, they saw a wreck offshore (the 764-ton S.S. ALBAMBRA, which struck CSI in the fog), and in their skiff tried to reach the stranded craft. A heavy sea capsized their small boat on the Fish Island ledges. John grasped the skiff's stern, but Harvey and his father were thrown too far. Two men came to their assistance and took John and his father aboard, but Harvey was not found till later, when they saw him in the grip of breakers and reached him just in time. He revived an hour after being taken ashore. The spot where the Nickerson boat upset is still known as "Harvey's Rock".1

  • Anecdote*: His house is probably the "most moved" on Cape Sable Island. Hirtle Smith (GrGrandson to George), the owner in 1988, thinks it was taken from NE Point. Its first location was halfway between Hirtle's house and the home whre Howard Smith used to live. It was later moved a little nearer the shore, then moved again to where it now stands so that it would be conveniently near the pond for washing wool after the sheep were sheared. During the final move the house was made smaller and the extra material used for fuel. Hirtle enlarged the home, considered by some to be the oldest on the Hawk. It has large hand-hewn rafters put together with wooden pegs.1

  • Anecdote: The 1881 census shows her on CSI as a 10 year old student, Free Baptist, living with her father Israel (#24) and mother Sophronia (#25), brothers Israel (8209), John (#8211), Arther (#8210, more properly spelled Arthur), and Daniel (#22), and sisters Addeline (#8212, more properly spelled Adeline), Grace (#8214)), and Elmina (#8216). The 1901 census shows her living in Clark's Harbour with her parents, aged 30, single born 10 Oct 1870. Before her marriage she kept a diary detailing the popularity of her parents' household, with people always coming and going. Some came for a meal and other stayed overnight or for a few days. Part of the activity was due to the post office being located there for 40 years. In 1907 a telephone was installed, mainly for the convenience of the wireless station at CSI. The station had been set up about 2 years before and the men working there depended on Israel's (#24) ferry to get to and from the Cape. A cable carried the phoen line across the channels, and wince both phoens were on the same line, communication could be made without having to call the central office. Sometimes the men had to stay overnight due to rough seas, ad when there was no other place to sleep, they slept on the floor of the post ofice. No one was turned away.3,4,1
