Re: Ransom Nichols of NC/GA Lost Son?
I am Wm. and Sarah Nichols' 6th gr-granddaughter. My line is:
Wm & Sarah
Anderson (mistakenly listed as Andrew sometimes)
Robert (did not carry Nichols name, but is definitely bio son)
The tree above I am absolutely certain of up to the connection between Anderson and John Jefferson.I have very strong circumstantial evidence that Anderson was the father of John Jefferson, but have been unable to definitely prove it. For example, John Jefferson named a son Anderson and the two families definitely are connected in censuses,marriage, etc.I have John Jefferson's death cert. but it lists parents as unknown.
I would be very glad to see what your family research shows in this regard. I have made contact with my father's male Nichols cousin and I have considered asking him if I could sponsor his DNA test. What DNA company would you suggest?
