I checked my Nicholsons - Michael is not a common name - I have four, all catholic. Two
are much too young. One my great grandfather married Sara MacDonald in Mabou, the other
was born 1868 in Barra. Both had sisters Janet which also be Jane?
This doesn't help but Catholic Nicholsons usually had Barra connections.
