    Stricker-Nicholson-Harris Papers
    There are about 100 items relating to Col. George Stricker, his son Gen. John Stricker, John's daughters Catherine Stricker and Laura [Stricker] Nicholson, Laura's husband Joseph James Nicholson, their son John Stricker Nicholson, and their daughter Helen [Nicholson] Harris.

    John Stricker's papers (1794-1834) deal with land he owned with his father George in Ohio County, Virginia and with John's estate. John's estate is also the subject of the few papers of his daughters Catherine and Laura Nicholson.

    The Nicholson family had a long association with the U.S. Navy, and the papers of both Joseph James and his son John Stricker Nicholson relate to their naval careers. These papers are mainly official documents and correspondence. A third generation member Joseph Nicholson Harris also planned a naval career, and his family's papers include letters of recommendation from Severn Teakle Wallis to the Naval Academy and his rejection due to poor eyesight. Joseph N. Harris' sister Alice married a descendent of Daniel Brent, an agent for American claims against foreign governments. The collection contains 2 letters (1829, 1833) from Brent concerning indemnities awarded by the Brazilian government.
