NICHOLS of Michigan, New York, Pennsylvania or Arkansas

Journal by crpsmnwife

I am looking for info on Willis W. Nichols (b1849 in PA). He married Victoria Gay (b1860) and they had 2 children that I know of: Silas B. Nichols (b. 1879, NY) and Bertha V. Nichols (b.1883, MI). I know that they lived in Cayuga Co, NY, for a few years, and then moved to Mason, MI, for a time.
I was told that Willis Nichols was a Baptist minister and that he was killed by a train. I would love to confirm this somehow. My family also believes that he may have had twin sons born by his first wife. However, I DO know that he remarried after Victoria's death sometime before 1899. His second wife was Ida Nichols and they had one son (Louis V. Nichols, b. 1899) listed in the 1900 census in Fulton, Arkansas. His daughter Bertha lived with family in Michigan, and then settled in Cayuga Co, NY, with her husband Emmett Baker.

Willis Winfield Nichols was the son of Willis Benson and Eliza Jane Grey Nichols Clarion County, PA. Willis Benson Nichols was the son of Asa and Nancy Kelley Nichols. I have been researching this family for many years. My ancestor is Amanda S. Nichols, sister of Willis Benson Nichols. Her husband was Silas Palmer. Looking forward to hearing from you!
