The next family to be noticed is the Nicholson family. The first of the name known in the
county was John M. Nicholson; he came direct, as I think, from Scotland; don't know how it was
that he came to South Carolina, but think he came with some of the Sinclairs. He was a blacksmith;
whether he learned that trade in Scotland or after he came to this county is not known. He married,
I think a Miss Sinclair, and had and raised, as known to the writer, three sons, Archibald, Duncan
and Walter Nicholson - may have one daughter Nancy; she married Mr Elly Greenwood, a second wife
of his; they have some family. Old man Nicholson may have had other daughters.
