There are two John Nicholsons in 1850 Union Co. Ga. that I'm interested in
finding parents for. I strongly believe they are grandsons of John
and Susan Brown Nicholson who had sons James, William, Alford, Walter and
John Jr. These grandsons named John can't be the sons of William or John
Jr. That appears to leave Walter, Alfred and James Nicholson.
Here's some info for these two John Nicholsons from the 1850 and 1860 Union
Co. Ga. censi:
1) John Nicholson (born c. 1818 N.C.) and wife Margaret ? ( b. 1810 N.C.)
are shown in the 1850 Union Co. census (I have house 411) with sons William
(15) and Larkin (10) and daughters Adalade (4) and Adalizer ? (2) all born
This family doesn't appear to be in Union in 1860. I don't know if they
were in Towns Co. (formed from Union in 1856) then.
2) John and Martha Teague Nicholson (wed in Union Co. on Sept. 29, 1844) are
in both the 1850 (I show house 11) and 1860 (I show house 717) censi. Both
censi show him born circa 1819-20 in N.C. His wife's Stats are consistent
censi ---Martha born in N.C. circa 1821. They show children Martha and Mary
born c. 1845-6 (twins) , Lafayette born c. 1849, Julius 1852, Nancy A. 1855
and John 1859-60. The children born pre 1850 show N.C. birthplaces
indicating John and Martha may have moved to N.C. after marriage, then
returned c. 1850. In 1860 they show a Jack Seabolt?, age 19, in their
The above Jack Seabolt appears to be the Jackson Seabolt in the house of
Solomon Seabolt (Age 47 N.C. #541) in 1850. Per the Union Co. website annotated census , he
has a sister who marries a Teague in 1853 also. There were other
Teague/Seabolt marriages, so the Seabolts and Teagues appear aligned and
One of these two John Nicholsons must belong to Alfred, James, Walter or ?
and the other to one of the remaining. All would have sons this age and all
would likely name the son John. Walter is known to have a John about this
Does anyone descend from one of these two John Nicholsons?
