Hi all,
My name is Charles Raymond Nichols. Charlie to you. I'm trying to piece togother my family history. Just like a lot of other folks it would appear.

Well, here it is 2003. I've learned a good bit about my family that I never knew. I now now know that My grand father Raymond Nichols died of TB in 1930 and is buried on the old Nichols Farm in Brekinridge Co. KY. I've also learned that his father's parents were Henry Nichols, born in 1874 (don't have the exct date yet), Died June 14, 1914, and Susan Pruitt, born March 10, 1861, and died December 30, 1965. Also buried on the Nichols Family farm in Hudson, Brekinridge Co. KY.

Besides my grandfather, they also had two daughters, Sylvia, born June 4, 1902 and Ruby Sunshine, born Septmber 28, 1907. Great-grandma Susan also had three daughters from a previous marriage, Pearl West, born August 21, 1885, Iva West, born March 1, 1895, and Cova West, born 1891.

In addition I have also learned tat on my mother's side that my grandfather's sister Luella Fisher, born, August 13, 1906, and was adopted out to James and Nannie Morris of Montezuma, IN. She was married to William E. Keller and had 9 children. She died September 11, 1979.

My goal still, is to streatch this tree as far as I can.I really do want to thank everyone that's been sending me the information. Not only have I've been recieving info about loved ones from the past, but I've also been discovering new family members I didn't know I had. So please keep sending in the info, the tree just keeps getting bigger and bigger, and more and more interesting as well.

I'll be adding new pictures soon. I have'em I just need to add'em. I promise I will soon.

Happy Birthday Toni Lee. I love you!

Good news!
I have just located a website of my grandmother Dorthy's family tree. The Hemderman Family. It has members dating back to the 1600s origenating from Bern Switzerland! I am in the process of adding them to my collection now. Feel free to view the new trees as I add them.

I have finally found my Walkers! I've added a link to both the Walker website and the Helderman site. Feel free to check them out anytime. They are really interesting sites.
