My Name is Jeff Nicholas and I live in Palmyra Maine. I found this forum through researching Carlton Canoe Co. I also discovered an exhibit that had been held at the Marine museum on the coast, I think Bar Harbor. Anyway, to make a long story short there was a list of old canoe builders in that exhibit. On this list I discovered that my Great Great Grandfather Thomas Nicholas was listed as a wooden and bark canoe builder in Greenville, Maine in 1882. Further research led me to a book written by a man named Steele in 1882, that told of his adventures on a canoe trip in Maine with his three guides, one being my grandfather a Malicite Indian and two white men. Fortunately Mr. Steel was also an artist and in his book is an etching of the three guides. I recognized my great great grandfather from family resemblances. This is the only known likeness of Thomas Nicholas my family has. I believe the name of the book was "Paddle & Portage." I have it here somewhere but darned if I can find it today.
