  • Notes 
    • John Clifton Nichols was born January 1st, 1811 (headstone is incorrect) in White County, Tennessee. He married Mary Ann Davis on March 20th, 1830. They had thirteen children. By 1860, the family was in Arkansas. He enlisted in Company C of the 27th Arkansas infantry at Bellefonte on February 16th, 1862. However, he was discharged on June 27th, 1862 for being over age. His enlisting at age 51 (quite old for that time) goes to show his convictions and willingness to fight for what is right, even though he never saw action, I believe he belongs here. He returned home to his family. His first wife died in about 1870. He remarried to Amanda Cora Brown on August 22nd, 1873. The amazing thing? He was sixty-two and she nineteen. The more amazing thing? He fathered six more children with her. John died in 1898.
