I see Larry Nichols age 72 is on the 1930 Jones Co., TX census... he is listed as retail merchant-grocery... born TX TN TN; wife named Mary, 72, born TX AL TN.
I have a Nichols line that is: Aaron Isaac Nichols b.1853 Gonzales Co., TX died 1935 Jones Co., TX, buried Bethel Cemetery, Anson, Jones Co., TX.Wife was Annie Hadden. This family was in Caldwell Co., TX in 1900; in Jones Co., TX 1910, 1920, & 1930.
Then in another file I have this NICHOLS line: Lawrence Coleman (Larry) Nichols b.1807 NC/Ireland/or TN wife Sarah. Children: Alfred Nichols Mary Ann Nichols 1830 +David M. Nichols 1832 William M. (Billy) Nichols 1834 Elizabeth Jane Nichols 1836 Margarett Nichols 1841 Benjamin M. Nichols 1843 Andrew Jackson (Jack) Nichols 1845 Jemima Ellen Nichols 1848 Lucretia Nichols 1850 Caroline M. Nichols 1856
+David M. Nichols b. 1832 TN died 1914 OK Harriett S. Bates, wife, born MO married 1856 Hopkins Co., TX Children: LARRY NICHOLS 1857 Ellen NIchols 1860 William Nichols 1862 Laura Nichols 1864 Coleman David Nichols 1867
It would appear the Larry Nichols b.1857 is your line... if you think so and need more information on the individuals in this line, e-mail me direct and I will be happy to pass on what I have.I have been recently working this line after I found a family history on them in Bosque county... I think that's the county... since the other line as well as mine appears in Jones Co., TX I was trying to see if there was a connection.
