These early Litchfield lists were prepared by volunteer Dick Nabinger. Dick's family arrived in
Herkimer County in the mid-19th century:
"My family search in Herkimer county centers around Nabingers with side trips to Miller and any other
connections that I come across. My great grandfather, Jacob C. Nabinger married an Emma G. Miller in Herkimer Co.
somewhere. Jacob came to Herkimer sometime between 1849 and 1852 when he was five years old with his father
Andreas. I have the bare information back to Germany but only a bare start and hope to find more in Herkimer
County." Dick Nabinger
