Jeptha Nichols, child of Kinchen Elias Nichols and Martha Carroll, was born in Pike County, Alabama, March 07, 1875. Jeptha was only two years of age when his father died, leaving him to grow up without the presence of a father. It seems as if that roll was taken on by Samuel Marion Reeves, a half-brother from his mother's first marriage to Lucius Reeves. Sam was living next door with his older brother James when the 1880 Pike County Census was taken. Jeptha, listed as Jepthy Nickels, was age 2 when the census was enumerated. Little is known about the rest of Jeptha's child-hood years.
When the 1900 Pike County, Alabama Census was taken Jeptha was 25, single, and living in the home of Pike County Sheriff Sam Reeves. He was working as a book keeper.
Jeptha married in Pike County November 08, 1905 to Adelaid "Addie" Siler Rollins. She was a daughter of W. D. and Rebecca J. Siler, was born in Pike County, Alabama, January 26, 1879. One child, a daughter, was born to this union before Jetha's death in Pike County March 21, 1907. He was buried at the "Oakwood Cemetery" in Troy, Alabama. However, his wife had him moved to "Green Hills Memorial Park", along with his daughter Margaret, when it opened about 1960.
When the 1910 Pike County Census was taken Addie, listed as Mrs. Jepp Nichols, was age 30 and living in the home with her parents and daughter Margaret. Addie was a school teacher working for the Pike County Board of Education. The 1920 Pike County Census has her listed as Addie Nickels, age 40, living with her daughter Margaret. Addie was now working as a merchant in a book store. Some have stated that the store was named "Nichol's Bookstore," but others who knew Addie and were customers there said the store was always known as "Miss Addies." It was located on the Square in Troy, Alabama. In the 1930 Census Addie is still operating the book store. She is listed as "Head of Household" and living alone. Addie is 51. No information has been found as to how long she managed this business.
Addie died in Troy, Pike County, June 15, 1964 and was buried next to her Jeptha and her daughter Margaret at Green Hills Memorial Park.
