I am trying to find info about JAMES NICHOLLS in the USA.
He was born 1902 in Whitehaven, England. Went out to South Africa with his parents at an early age. He apparently "ran away" from home when about age 15. The next concrete info I have on him is he visited his mother in Johannesburg in 1948 on his way from Saudi Arabia. He apparently worked for an Oil Company. He appears on the New York Passenger lists 1820-1957 as arriving in New York from Cape Town on Board the ship "Greece Victory" on 4 May 1948. He listed himself as an Engineer; a widow; nationality British. He indicated he intended to become a US citizen. He gave his last permanent address as "Jeddeh, Saudi Arabia". He indicated he had been in USA before for a period of 4 years and his last departure from USA was Oct 1945. He was on his way to see his son, also James Nicholls, at the US Army, Fort Bragg, NC.
The family story was he married a New York girl. It is believed he lived in New York at one stage. He & his wife apparently lived in a high rise appartment and their baby apparently crawled out of the window and was killed. His wife never recovered from the shock.
ANY info, or suggestions where I could get more info, about James and/or his wife and/or son in the USA would be very much appreciated
