NICHOLS CEMETERY

"This cemetery is on Stage Road just to the east of U.S. Route 13 south of the DE line by about 1/2 mile. It's actually on the east side of Stage Road about 0.1 mile south of Foskey Lane and sitting back from the road a couple hundred feet. The cemetery is in great shape and can be identified on the 1876 maps in the Parsons District in the far NW corner where it says 'Res., Heirs of I.M. Nichols'", says Mike Hitch, who has provided this list. Thanks again, Mike!
