I am researching David Nichols born Feb 1815 in Dedham, Mass. I have not been able to verify that through VR yet, but that was passed down in my family history. I found David Nichols son of Gilbert and Rebecca Crane Nichols born Feb 1815 in Berkley, Mass. I don't know if these are the same two or not. David had a brother, William Nichols, born Aug 1819. In 1835 David and William left Mass and settled in Tennessee, Davidson and Cheatham Counties. I am the great-great granddaughter of David, through his son, Joseph Hudson Nichols, his son Lonnie Jackson Nichols, and his son, Charles Edward Nichols, my father. David was married to Sarah Jane Simpson, April 12, 1840. I have information on their families. Is anyone missing David and William?
