  • Notes 
    • In addition to the other 13 children of this family, "Davis - The Settlers of Salem, WV," p. 369, reports another daughter, Elizabeth, b. ca 1847, who on Apr 1 1875, in Doddridge County, married Isaac Batten, a son of William & Christiana. But Wes Cochran's "Doddridge County Marriages 1845-1937," p. 68, has the following entry for that marriage: "Isaac Batton, 24, b. Lewis Co, res. Doddridge Co, son of William B. & Louisa A; and Elizabeth J. Nicholson, 22, b. Madison Co VA, res. Doddridge Co, dau of Joseph & Barbary. Married Apr 1 1875." Harrison County death records, in the form of a handwritten ledger, have entries for (1) Elizabeth Batten, widowed, age 88, died Oct 6 1911; and (2) Elizabeth Batton, widowed, age 90, died Oct 6 1912. Basis for discrepancies not clear.

      1860 Census, Doddridge Co, Virginia (now West Virginia), enumerated on Jul 15 1860:
      C. Nichleson, 46, farmer, value of real estate (blank), value of personal estate $100; Patty, 44; James, 18; S. (male), 16; Edmund, 14; N. C. (male), 11; H. A. (female), 10; E. (female), 9; M. S. (female), 6; M. T. Hunter (male), 3; Silas Hunter, 20. (Note: Exact identities of the two Hunters, and any relationship to this Nicholson family, are not known.)
      The next enumerated household:
      J. Nichleson (male), 23, farmer, value of real estate (blank), value of personal estate $20; M. (female), 22.
      The identity of this couple is not clear. It is possibly Christopher & Patty/Mary's daughter Margaret and her husband Zachariah, with the latter's initial entered incorrectly.

      1880 Census, Doddridge Co, WV (Southwest District), enumerated on Jun 12 1880:
      Christopher Nickelson, 62, farmer, medical condition lost arm, disabled; wife Mary, 60, medical condition ashtma, disable, unable to read or write; son Robert M. T., 22, single, works on sawmill, unable to write; dau Nancy V, 19, single, medical condition Female W, unable to write. [2, 3]
