William N. Nichols was born about 1848 Guadalupe Co., TX; parents were George W. Nichols and Rebecca Donovan-Blevins-Nichols.
Wiliam's father died in 1851 Guadalupe Co., TX.
William N. Nichols's mother remarried to Jefferson McGrew about 1852. The Jefferson McGrew family appears on the 1860 Atascosa county, TX census.
William N. Nichols is on the 1880 Atascosa Co., TX census living with his mother and stepfather, Jefferson & Rebecca McGrew. William Nichols is listed as a widower at age 27 and he has two children: Emeline Nichols age 11 and George Nichols age 7.
I have also found these families in Wilson Co., TX.
I would appreciate any information that might connect to this Texas family.
