I have done alot of research on the nichols line. while tracing jesse nichols and julia ransom i found a will by jesse for his children in franklin co arkansas. it states daughter alice coil, Plemon harman, lula harman. these were the daughters of margaret. to my daughter mary s yarbrough, to son george w nichols, to daughter naoma alice greenwood, to son andrew jackson nichols, to daughters lucinda knox, sarah e taylor and laura a moomau. the only children listed to jessie and julia ann ransom in 1850 census were Margaret 8, Lucinda 6, george 4, mary 1, I have never found and information on any older children. also julia and jesse divorced and i found records in the franklin county arkansas that julia ransom died 1901 has a will but no probate records. It states that she is the daughter of george ransom. Hope this helps but if you have proof of an Elizebeth and child 2 i would be interested in finding out about the information about them. i did find on the internet on the leonhart cagle 1684 by LaMona Phillips that she list a Serena ann nichols born march 16 1840 died 14 Dec 1842. they also list Margaret J Nichols, Lucinda NIchols, George w, Mary Samantha, Sarh Elizebeth, William A., Naomi Alice, Andrew Jackson NIchols, Laura A. Nichols abd a Paralee Arabella Nichols. one last thing, i followed a jesse nichols that was the son of flayl nichols from Severe county tenn. this Jesse nichols married a Tabitha Coulter. they moved to Marshall county al. by 1830. He was there with a male 20-30 years old. I have often wondered if that is our Jesse nichols that married Julia ransom? It shows that Our Jesse was born in Marion county tenn. i am still doing research there. I went to Jasper, Marion county Tenn. in the summer of 2002 but found little information because of fires to the court house.Some people including myself, ha ha, have him confused with Jesse Nichols son of John Nichols and Martha Payne. I believe their Jesse married Sally Fields. and that jesse nichols was the brother of flayl nichols. Anyway i know that Jesse and tabitha Nichols were in Marshall county al. in 1830. there is a land grantthat Tabitha obtained in the 185 something. Tabitha Nichols wife of Jesse Nichols, was on the census records of 1850. I found where her Daughter Elizebeth Ann Nichols, Married a Tyra D. Thomas on April 6, 1848 and tha Mary Nichols Married William Thomas on Feb. 24 1843. Tabatha died on Ju;y 1877 in Marshall county al. at the age of 94. Hope this helps, Freda
