Nicholson Family

The Nicholsons joined our family when William Richardson Nicholson married Jane Adair. Their son Rufus married Sarah Caroline Bogle. Rufus had a son named Walter Hugh Nicholson who married Mary Ella Wheeler. Rufus and Caroline had a daughter named Minerva Jane Nicholson, who married Walter Marion Smith, who was my great-grandfather.

In the late 1800s, there are some very bad dates here. I copied those from other people. One day, I'll sort them out and figure out the truth.

Generation No. 3
3. ROBERT3 NICHOLSON (ROBERT2, WILLIAM1) was born 1645 in Virginia, and died 17 Feb 1719. He married
JOANNAH JOYCE LEE. She died Unknown in Surry County, Virginia.
Notes for JOANNAH JOYCE LEE:
Her date of birth is generally listed as 1675, which makes no sense since that is when her first son was born. Her
date of death is commonly listed as 1662, years after she supposedly died and her children were born.
Children of ROBERT NICHOLSON and JOANNAH LEE are:
4. i. JOHN4 NICHOLSON, b. 1675, Surry County, Virginia; d. 11 Mar 1754, Sussex County, Virginia.
ii. ROBERT NICHOLSON, b. 1685; d. Unknown.
Generation No. 4
4. JOHN4 NICHOLSON (ROBERT3, ROBERT2, WILLIAM1) was born 1675 in Surry County, Virginia, and died 11 Mar
1754 in Sussex County, Virginia. He married ELIZABETH WATKINS, daughter of ? WATKINS and JANE FLOOD.
She was born 1692 in Surrey County, Virginia, and died 1740.
Notes for JOHN NICHOLSON:
From this point back, these are just people I found in other researchers' family trees, without corroboration.
He may have married Jane Flood and Elizabeth Flood in addition to Elizabeth Watkins. So, the children may be
mixed up. For instance, the son named Flood would logically be considered to be a child of one of the Flood
sisters. Some researchers list Mary Waters as the mother of John Nicholson, born in 1740. On the other hand,
Elizabeth Watkins' mother was named Jane Flood, so that could explain the whole Flood connection.

Researchers have placed him in Greenville SC in 1790. Amos Richardson is thought to be William Nicholson's
4
brother in law. The following transaction were mentioned in the 1800 annotated Pendleton District Census, to wit
"William Nicholson lived on Nicholson's Fork of Little River and when William Stewart, his neighbor, sold his
lands on 22 October 1800 before moving to Jackson County, GA, William Nicholson and Amos Richardson
bought the tracts, one of them jointly".
William Nicholson appears to have been a brother of Benjamin Nicholson who is found by him in the 1810
Pendleton census. Benjamin disappears from Pendleton between 1810-1820, but a Hannah Nicholson is found in
the 1820 Pendleton census. Everyone believes Hannah was Benjamin's widow.
The families of William and Benjamin Nicholson interweave with those of other Nicholson families found in
Pendleton in the 1790's. Without going into a lot of details, an example is that we have two sons of William
Nicholson, and their children, later interacting in multiple circumstatnce (estates, land, orphaned children) like
brothers with a James Nicholson who has been established as the son of John (1763 Bute North Carolina - 1858
Union Georgia) Nicholson.

Weep not for her with hearts shrouded in gloom.
Better by far is the anthem of gladness,
Lifting the veil from the shroud and tomb."

JOHN5, JOHN4, ROBERT3, ROBERT2, WILLIAM1) was born 16 Aug 1893 in Fort Payne, DeKalb County, Alabama176,
and died 09 Feb 1950 in Lake City, Columbia County, FL177. He married RUBY SPENCER CALDWELL 27 Oct
1922 in Birmingham, Jefferson County, Alabama, daughter of BENJAMIN CALDWELL and JULIA WHEELER. She
was born 11 Jan 1903 in Ensley, Jefferson County, Alabama178, and died 25 Oct 1986 in Panama City, Bay, FL.
Notes for EMMETT NICHOLSON SMITH:
Florida Death Index 1877-1998 Name: Emmet M. Smith Place: Columbia Gender: M Race: W Volume: 1393
Certificate: 2497 Death Date: 1950 (He was at the Veterans Hospital in Lake City when he died.)
Their son, Jack Smith, was born in a house on the property of Andrew Lindsay Wheeler. It was a 2-story house
back behind the main house.
34
During the 1930 census, the family was living in Mount Clemons Michigan, near Detroit. He was working there
reupholstering and repairing Victorian furntiure and returned to Alabama just before the birth of his daughter,
Linda. On April 24, 1930, he lived in Clinton Township, Mount Clemons, at 25 Church Street, with Ruby, Guy
and Jack. There were two boarders in the house, whose names appear to be Verna Leonardson(born in Michigan)
and Charles Simmons (born in Illinois). The family is paying $30 a month for rent. Emmett says his father was
born in Georgia and Ruby says her mother was born in Missouri according to the census takers, both things that
we believe are not true. The lodgers are a waitress at a hotel and a laborer doing odd jobs. Emmett lists himself
as a a carpenter in a cabinet shop.
His daughter says: He always planted a few crops because farming was in his blood. They had 39 acres in
Alabama, but a lot of it was woods (long-term leases from Tennessee Coal and Iron company). He would have
corn, sweet potatoes and soy beans, in a time when people were not growing soy beans. He fed them to the
animals, but said that people would be eating them before long. He had a kitchen garden too. He worked in a
defense plant in Alabama, during World War II. His daughter does not know what he did because they didn't talk
about what they did at the plant. She thinks he made powder for explosives. His son thinks he was working on
setting the plant up rather than working in the plant. He learned how to cut hair in the Army, so on Sunday
afternoons their front porch was a barber shop. Everyone who was working 6 days a week in the defense plants
during the war would get their hair cut because that was their only day off. When it became popular for women to
bob their hair, he cut his wife's hair. The relationship with her father was cooler after that, and he may have never
forgiven Emmett for cutting Ruby's hair.
His son says: My dad worked in the Edgewater coal mine as a brick mason building block and brick walls for air
and ventilation control and motor shops in the mine for part of the war years. He worked as a saw filer,
sharpening saws while building a powder plant for DUPONT co. in Sylacaga, Al. Tthey produced powder for
dynamite and all kinds of explosives ( I think the full name was I. E. Dupont and De mours co. I may not have
it spelled right ). Both before and after the war he worked as a contractor building houses.
He says his dad was a man of sometimes strong opinions and did not care what other people thought, a trait which
arguably carried down in the famly. At church one time the discussion came up among a small group about why
some person did not come to church. Someone in the group mentioned that this person just did not have a suit to
wear and felt out of place .My dad very quickly answered "who is going to church, the person or the clothes ? If
the clothes are going you can just put them in a paper sack and send them." After more discussion about being
too poor to own a suit my dad suggested that the group start wearing KHAKI pants and any kind of clean shirt
and forget the tie. The next Sunday he showed up in khaki pants. He was the only one but he continued to do
that. He did not believe that clothes make the man. I am afraid that I have to agree. He worked at the powder
plant as a carpenter-- saw filer while building the plant. he never worked in the plant after it went into production
His son also says his dad had 2 separate 40 acre, adjoining leases with 40 acres in cultivation, the rest was in
woods and pasture. He believed in a good garden He liked to go to church and tell people "I have plenty of
garden vegetables, Come on over and help yourself " then when we got home he would tell me to go pick some
and bring it to the house so they won't be tromping around in the garden (some of them didn't know how to pick
and would destroy more than they picked). From the 6th grade on I got out of school at 1:00 and came hom,
,hooked up the mule(s) and plowed until he came home to take over the plowing and I would go in and fix the
mules feed sometimes milk the cow and then do my homework (what part of it I ever done) I think the main
reason for some of the farming was to keep me out of trouble - - - It worked. I came in one day and told him I
wanted to go to a specific ball game.He wasn't in the best mood that day He said " I've got your d- - - ball game
there is a team of mules and 40 acres and if that runs out I will lease some more" well that fall we bought a used
tractor and I learned to drive it pretty good, The 40 acres ran out, I had plowed it over and over..My dad always
tried to do what he said he would do so he leased 5 acres - - -5 miles from home I plowed that and planted it in
soybeans, I cut and raked it and he gave it away because it had NUT grass in it and he,didn't want to
contaminate our place with it. But I never got into trouble I didn't have time. Of all the farming we done , I sold
1 half wagon load of watermelons..Of the rest, we had what we used and gave away more than we used I can't
remember ever selling anything more. ---He first leased the front 40 acres that he had helped uncle Hugh
Nicholson clear the trees off of it I can remember some of the trees were oaks over 2 feet in diameter. the first
lease was before my sister Linda was born The second lease was an adjoining 40 acres that uncle Dick Wheeler
*(Granny Caldwell's brother ) had leased for years and he gave up the lease. since we had the front 40 the
company ( T. C I ) let us have it.There was some mine cracks--big cracks in the ground varying in size some4--6
ft. wide and 40--50 ft long open 4 to 8 ft deep ( WE had a mule fall into one once and we had to dig her out ) We
35
filled them and watched them and farmed right over them. Occasionally one would open up and we would have
to fill it again some of the cracks are there now in among the houses that have been built in my field.

She was buried on her wedding anniversary, having outlived her husband by 36 years.
Her daughter says: She quit school in 7th grade and stayed home to help her mother. Later in life she was a
cook, caretaker and so forth. During World War II she took a home nursing course. When any of the people in
the neighborhood had a baby, she would help the doctor. When anyone was sick, they would come get her to sit
with the sick person and take care of them When her grand-daughter Linda Rae was 3, she had dysentery while
she was away visiting with Ruby. Ruby sat in the hospital with her, crocheted and fed her 7-up and jello. She
grew flowers, both plain and unusual. People would come by and see her flowers and she would pick a bouquet
for them. She made many, many, rag dolls, long and skinny, all sewn by hand. They could go in the washing
machine and dryer and come out and be loved some more. She made completely hand-sewn quilts, then made
potholders from the scraps. Everyone in the family used her potholders. Everyone thinks of her when they see a
pansy. She always said the kids could pick all the pansies they wanted. Pansies were fair game.
Her grand-daughter says: Granny Rube taught me to crochet, sew by hand and pick flowers properly. In my
garden now I have all sorts of flowers that remind me of her: pansies, peonies, columbines, and coral bells. My
most vivid memory of her is watching her kill a diamond back rattler with a hoe when she was about 58 years old.
My most vivid memory of her house in Lynn Haven, Florida, was some asparagus my mother picked and cooked
for me there one spring. It was the best asparagus I ever ate. I loved her quilts and I always sewed, but I thought
I could NEVER make a quilt like she could. One day, when I was in my late thirties, I saw a quilt made of old
blue jeans and tied with red yarn. It was so ugly. I knew I could do better than that, so I started making quilts and
enjoying every minute of it. I am proud to say that I have a copy of her rag doll pattern.
Her son says that she did not sell flowers until later in life. She always said, "Flowers shoudl be given away" and
gave away a fortune in them. She also made those rag dolls complete in every detail with panties,
petticoats,socks. His wife has one with small glasses made of small copper wire and once tried to get her to make
one using some of his sister's red hair. Granny Rube made one of cotton yarn that looked like her daughter's hair
instead. if you have one of hers notice the small stitches, handmade like they were machine made. EVERY baby
as far back as I can remember, got a stuffed crochet multi color ball (and I think Nell still has one of our kids ball)
Nell still treats some of those rag dolls like they were gold.
