William Rowland Nichols, Sr. moved his family from Arkansas to a 1,790 acre ranch on the Guadalupe River, now Ingram, Kerr Co., TX in about 1856.  There were only a few log cabins and about two families between the Nichols home and the village called Kerrville.

William Rowland Nichols did not live long enough to enjoy the Kerr County, Texas home.  Nichols failed to return home one evening in April of 1859 after a  hunting trip for turkey on his property.  The following morning a search party was organized.  His body was recovered and buried where it was found, in a live oak grove near his home.  This location later became Nichols Cemetery where residents of the area as well as family members were buried.

William Rowland Nichols's death was ruled death by Indians.  It is an interesting fact that some members of his family believed that he had not been killed by Indians, but had been murdered and his death made to appear to be by Indians.

If you have pictures or information for listings in this surname...I would be happy to include them here.
