recently found three more sons of john nichols and martha jones. martha remarried in 1873 to a robert meeks and was in the 1880 census as martha meeks living with her three youngest sons. henry, robert lee and samuel sampson nichols in west virginia where she had married robert smith meeks. although they were living apart at the time and were listed separately in the census. not sure if henry nichols is the same as james h nichols or his brother. but there is definite evidence that samuel sampson nichols is the son of john and martha jones nichols. and the census shows that martha became a meeks in west virginia. these three younger sons apparently spelled their name as nickles or nickels in wv.
also this would place john's death date about or before 1873 most likely. still have no death certificate for him or martha. i believe samuel sampson nichols is named after his uncle sampson jones. thats obvious. and now i wonder if maybe grandpa rufus samuel may have been named after him. the nickles / nickels family line there continued on with the same spelling. also, this census shows that martha was still alive in 1880.
