Edward Shillingburg and his late wife Patricia, upon moving to the Island full-time in 1999, researched and wrote about Shelter Island for about 16 years. They produced, among other materials, more than 21 titles, most of which are available at the Historical Society.

This book includes stories of the Nicoll family members who lived between 1776 and 1899 on Shelter Island and Manhattan Island, and in Bay Side and Mastic, NY.

Charlotte Anne Nicoll, who lived from 1827 to 1891, saved about 350 letters and from these letters we have been able to piece together wonderful tales of long-ago.
