The Nichols family, so far as the county is concerned, sprang from old Averett Nichols, of Columbus County, N. C. His youngest son Averett, born 8th March 1803, settled in Marion County in 1830; he married a Miss Burney of Columbus County, N. C.; he located near what is now called Nichols, in the woods, apparently a poor place, lived there during his long life, and died there at the age of near ninety-three, on the 7th January, 1896; he raised a family of ten children, eight daughters and two sons; the sons, Mckendree (called Kendree) and Averitt Burney.
