Re: Mary Foley and William Nichols of Ohio

In Reply to: Mary Foley and William Nichols of Ohio by Monte Symmonds of 3392

Your post caught my eye because I have a William H. Nichols who married a Catherine Foley (might her name have been "Mary Catherine"?) in Meigs County, OH on June 18, 1868. [Source: Marriages of Meigs County, 1819-1913 and Ohio Marriages, 1800-1958]

Catherine was born in 1849 and her parents were Thomas Foley (1808-1900) and Elizabeth Wilson (1814-1894). Thomas and Elizabeth were living in Vinton County by 1870 and previously were in Meigs County.

A son, Andrew Jackson Foley, of Thomas and Elizabeth Foley is living next door to a James (1804-1870) and Mary/Mazie (1814-1890) Nichols in 1880. I believe this to be William's family.

The William Nichols who married Catherine Foley was born Feb 1845 and died Apr 6, 1926. And, yes, William and Catherine Nichols did have a daughter Mary E. Nichols born in 1869.
