Matilda C, domestic servant.

Standard

Matilda C Stephenson was 16 in 1870 and living in the house of James E Bourne. her occupation was listed as “domestic” so i assume she was a maid… there was another servant in the house too. the housekeeper nancy taylor and her little girl, gilly. was gilly a daughter of james? idk… but i do know that he married matilda in 1878 in grayson county, virginia. eight years later… who were matilda’s parents? idk…

james and matilda were my third great grandparents but matilda is my wall. who were her parents? idk. no one seems to know. grrrr.

Archie moved to West Virginia

Standard

while i have been unable to find a census for archibald nichols and family in 1850, there was a farm census that shows that he was probably still in bedford va. then and after that he just basically disappeared from bedford.

apparently arch went to wv to stay with his daughter martha by 1860 and that is where his death certificate turns up. filled out by his soninlaw stephen morris of wv. meaning that he moved to west virginia with his daughter about or before 1860 and that is where he was laid to rest.

archibald was the son of john and martha payne nichols and the husband of judith hatcher. did he remarry after his wife died in 1819? i dont think so.

though there are rumors that he married polly updike or updyke in january of 1819 his wife did not die until april of that year and so i think not. there were rumors that he married martha jane basham but as i disclosed in an earlier post she married another archibald nichols who was born decades later.

it is more likely that he lived out his life in bedford county and died a widower. at this point that is the way it looks at least. arch served in the revolution and was a sergeant in the military before he retired but he was born in maryland where his family lived before the war.

the only evidence at this point that he died in west va. is the name of his son in law on his death record. meanwhile his son john was married and living in bedford in eighteen sixty. maybe he was living on archs land at the time… another piece of the puzzle that is my family tree that needs to be found….
