|| Because he named his first-born John and because there was a John Reynolds living in Alexandria in 1795 and up into the 1820's, I need to research John Reynolds as a possible father to David. There was also a John Reynolds in St. Mary's County, MD, where David and Louisa's wedding took place. |

|| On 27 March 1911, at Indiana County, PA,, Archibald Nichol|
Archibald, Nichol, one of te oldest and best-known citizens of this community, died at his home in White township, on Saturday evening, March 25, at 10:30 o'clock, in his 90th year, of cancer of the bowels. He was born at Bellamagory, County Tyrone, Ireland, a village two miles east of the city of Strabane. The Protestant people of the north of Ireland came from three sources: The Lowland Scotch, the Puritan English and the French Huguenots. So far as can be learned Mr. Nichol was of Huguenot extraction. An uncle, for whom he was named, came to America in 1821. A letter which he wrote in that year and which is still preserved, gives an interesting description of affairs in this country in those early days. The deceased came to America with his parents when a child less than four years old, in 1825, landing in Philadelphia. The voyage required seven weeks. As a lad he attended a school in Philadelphia, but the family did not remain there long. They came across the Alleghenies in a Conestoga wagon and settled on Yellow Creek, near a relative by the name of McBeth. After a few years they removed to the Manner settlement near Greenville. Finally, in 1837, they moved to a farm near Taylorsville, when the subject of this sketch was 16 years of age. There his father died when he was still a young man. His mother, who had been blind for 20 years, died in 1874.
On June 26, 1863, Mr. Nichol was united in marriage to Miss Anna Pauline Trimble, a daughter of the late Samuel Trimble, of College Springs, Ia. In 1865 he moved to the Beck farm where all his 10 children, except the eldest, were born. Three of the children died in infancy. The second son died at the age of six years, and his third son, Frank, a little less than five years ago. Those surviving, with their mother are: Rev. William M. Nichol, in charge of the Second U.P. church, Brooklyn, N.Y., Charles A., residing on the Hood farm in White township; Miss Eda Belle, a teacher in the high school at Elwood; Miss Martha, at home, and Mrs. E.D. Johnson, of Albuquerque, N.M. Twelve grandchildren are living.
Mr. Nichol moved to the Hood farm where he died in 1894. Until the last illness he was blessed with unusually good health throughout his long life; his appetite, his hearing, and his eye sight were all good. He slept like a child at night and was always able to throw off the cares of the day. In all his life he never wore eyeglasses. He led an active life up until last fall. Throughout his illness his mind was clear and he recognized friends and loved ones until a few hours before the summons came. He was the eldest and is the last of his father's family. So far as known there are no cousins on that side. On his mother's side there are three cousins in Philadelphia, and another, James McKendrick, of Indiana. His youngest brother, John M. Nichol, died in Fort Morgan, Col, a little more than a year ago.
The house in which Mr. Nichol died was built in 1860 and his was the first death to occur in it.
The funeral will be held on Tuesday afternoon at 1 o'clock, Rev. J. Day Brownlee, of the First U.P. church, being in charge. Interment will be made in Greenwood cemetery. Indiana friends desiring to attend the services should leave Indiana on the Clymer car which leaves at noon.
||7 April 1911
||Archibald Nichol left a will on 7 April 1911 at Indiana County, PA. The following article was in the Indiana newspaper: "Will of Archibald Nichol"|
