Welcome Charlene! There’s tons of info on this site and Blackfoot people in the Upper Souith, including WV. WV actually is pretty important in that story. Please see the article I have linked off the main page, http://saponitown.com/Blackfoot.htm. Just this thread has lots.
Use our search feature for your surnames. I seem to have heard the Nicely name before. Feel free to post a picture of your grandmother. I’d love to see it. You can see a pix of my gr-grandfather and grandmother in that article.
