ELIAS GEORGE NICHOLSON

Journal by elias

I'M LOOKING FOR MY GREAT GRANDFATHERS PARENTS AND SIBBLINGS.
ELIAS GEORGE NICHOLSON WAS BORN IN CLINTON KENTUCKY--BETWEEN 1861-1863. HIS FATHER--WILLIAM WAYNE NICHOLSON, BORN IN GEORGIA. MOTHERS NAME WAS ELIZABETH FROM TENNESSEE. THEY LIVED IN KENTUCKY, AND I THINK ELIAS'S SIBBLINGS MAY STILL BE THERE. A STORY THAT WAS TOLD TO US WAS ELIAS WAS IN A SEMINARY AND RAN AWAY--CAUGHT AND RETURNED. HIS FATHER SENT ONE OF HIS OTHER SONS TO TELL HIM HE WAS DISINHERITED. AND HE RAN AWAY AGAIN--NEVER TO RETURN. HE SHOWED UP IN TEXAS SOME YEARS LATER AND JOINED THE TEXAS RANGERS. HE WAS TRANSPORTING A PRISONER TO LOUISIANA, WHERE HE MET CALLIE COX AGE 14. THEY RAN AWAY TOGETHER AND MARRIED AND HAD FIFTEEN CHILDREN. HE SERVED IN THE SPANISH AMERICAN WAR, AND Wl AND WAS HONORABLY DISCHARGED BOTH TIMES.
HE DIED IN 1929, OKLAHOMA CITY, OK. I HAVE SEVEN GENERATIONS I'M WORKING ON---FIVE ARE COMPLETED. NEED HELP! CAN'T GO ANY FARTHER UNTIL I HAVE A NEW LEAD ON HIS FAMILY.

Iam only 15 but iam very intrested in my family history that i dont know much about i do know that my dads middle name is wayne firsty name kenneth and that it is passed down and that his dad came from Oklahoma. But his dads parents abandoned him when he was young. and he stayed in a back room of my "grandparents"(who basically adopted him)when he got old he met my grandma mary adams they had My dad kenneth wayne nicholson, marvin nicholson, richard nicholson, coy lee nicholson but the problem is that my dads dad died when my dad was only 18 of a heart attack.and his wife(mary) has also died. and thats all i know . i dont know if it connects but its worth a try.
