Does anyone know anything about the families of two brothers, Jeremiah Nichols and Manford NICHOLS, who were reared in Vermillion County IN, but moved to Johnson County MO about 1870. They were the sons of William NICHOLS and Rhoda MARTIN NICHOLS, who were married in Mercer County KY June 8, 1818. This couple had 13 children, seven of whom were born in Mercer County KY, and six were born in Vermillion County IN. Jeremiah NICHOLS was born 16 Nov 1820 in Mercer County KY and died 5 May 1891 in Johnson County MO. He married Olive C. JACKSON 26 Dec 1842 in Vermillion County IN, and they had four daughters: Harriet Ann, born abt 1848 in Indiana; Emily “Emma” b. abt 1850 in Indiana; Nancy b. abt 1852 in Indiana; and Florence b. abt 1855 in Indiana. Emma appears with her parents in the 1880 Johnson County MO census, so presumably her sisters were married or deceased by that time. Manford NICHOLS was born December 16, 1827 in Mercer County KY and died January 17, 1873 in Johnson County MO. He married Josephine JACKSON November 3, 1853 in Vermillion County IN, and they had the following children: Florella b. abt 1854 in Indiana; Clark L. [possibly L. Clark], born abt 1857 in Indiana; Loretta b. abt 1859 in Indiana; Lucy b. abt 1862 in Indiana; Horace W. b. 19 Jan 1864 in Johnson County MO and d. 24 Mar 1885 in Johnson County MO; Louisa b. January 11, 1866 in Johnson County MO and d. October 16, 1869 in Johnson County MO; Leslie A. b. abt 1871 in Johnson County MO. [Manford, Horace, and Louisa are buried in Liberty Cemetery, Johnson County MO.] Does anyone know who any of the children of either family married?
