Notes for AUGUSTA ELIZABETH NICHOLSON:

    In 1879, John and Augusta and their two sons went to Texas where they farmed in Robertson County.  John's brother, James P. Archer, worked on their farm.  They stayed in Texas about five years.  About 1884, John, August and children returned to Tennessee because of poor health in the family.  Augusta's father, James S. Nicholson, had died Jan. 18, 1882 and there probably was a need for someone to help Mattie Nicholson operate the farm.

After their return to Tennessee, John and Augusta Archer had more chidlren.  Grover was named after the Democrat from Buffalo who was President from 1884-88.  August, who had been only 18 years old when she married John, was 41 years old when their last child was born.

John Sevier Archer, third son of Juriat D. and Sarah Overfelt Archer, was born in Tennessee on July 2, 1852.  John was almost 22 years when he and Augusta were married.  They lived and farmed in Hawkins County and the children walked through the valley to Slate Hill School which they attended a few months a year.  They were all reared to be farmers, but Ada was educated and became a teacher, later taching in Oklahoma where she married Burtis Alge.

Almost a year after their eleventh child Ida was born, Augusta's mohter, Matilda A. Nicholson, died July 31, 1898.  Her body was laid to rest next to her departed husband, James S. Nicholson, in the Nicholson Cemetery at the corner of the farm.  A monumnet points heavenward with the words "Gone Home".  Their son, Bryon's, grave is marked with a stone dating his death Sept. 15, 1899, when he was sixteen years old.

"I grew up in a small town called Noeton, TN.  It was about eight miles from Morristown.  We had a post office, a church, a school and a mill.  This small town is now (ca. 2000) covered by the Cherokee lake.

"I can remember my mother talking about the train we called Pee-Vine.  It traveled from Knoxville to Bristol, TN.  When my mother visited her brother Kyle Nicholson, she rode the Pee-Vine to Morristown and then the bus to Russellville.  My mother often visited Uncle William Robert Nicholson that lived in Morristown.  She could walk from the depot to his home  She often talked about his nice horse and buggy.

"Times have really changed since this time.  Now there is a highway that bypasses Morristown, and you can make the trip from Grainger County to Russellville in a car in 30 minutes."

"I can remember my mother, Ethel, telling us the story of a visit at their home when she was a child.  My grandmother Nevada Nicholson heard a knock on the door and when she opened the door, there was a black woman inquiring about George Pinkney Nicholson, my grandfather.  George recognized her immediately.  They had played together as children and one could tell they were extremely fond of one another.  Her parents were slaves owned by Grandfather's family years before.  They stayed up until midnight discussing their childhood years.  She spent the night and left the following morning.

"We were a poor family but Daddy and Mother always kept us in church.  We attended the County Line Church [in Grainger County] where our grandparents attended years before.  In 1933, after my Uncle Joseph Osco Nicholson and his wife died, Guy came and lived with us for seven years.  He was 14 years old when he left.

"In 1942, I married Audley E. Wyatt.  He served in WWII and was a prisoner of war in Germany for 26 months.  He died in 1953.

"On Feb. 4, 1967, I married Hugh C. Hopkins.  We built a new house and the day it was finished, we married in the living room.  My mother lived with us until her death August 5, 1979.  My husband and I attend New Hope Gospel Church and have for years.  We are also active members of Disabled American Veterans and Auxiliary Chapter #59.  We are Chaplains with the chapters."

Notes for GRACE EVANGELIN NICHOLSON:

"I was an only child.  I had a good life growing up.  I had something money can't buy - parents who loved me very much.  Being an only child with no one to share with, I think I was closer to my parents than a lot of children were.  They were very protective of me, but I sure received a lot of whippings, even though I was spoiled.

"They would walk and take me to church and Dad would carry me.  My dad was always smiling even after a hard day at work.  He would bring Mother and me Milky Way candy bars home in his lunch box.  I believe all the Nicholsons are good people.

"I can't remember too much about visits with my dad's people when I was small.  My parents did not have a car and they lived in another county.  I never did see my dad's parents.  My mother's parents lived nearby in the same county, so they would visit with us a lot, and we would walk to see them.

"My dad would have been so proud had he lived to see our road named after him -- the Nicholson Road in Whitesburg, Tennessee."

Notes for ROY CHESLEY ARCHER:

On a cold autumn day in 1902, Roy Archer carved "Gone to Texas" on the porch post of his parents' home in Hawkins County.  Roy and Mary Archer and their two daughters, Minnie and Maude left by railroad for Texas.  In Carrolton County, Texas, Roy's aunt and uncle, Alice Nicholson Horner and Will Horner, owned a general store.  Roy worked in the store that winter, and Minnie and Maude played with the cases of eggs and tasted the pickles in the big barrels.

In the Spring of 1903, Roy Archer and his family traveled to the new territory, Oklahoma and were met at the railroad station at Pond Creek in Grant County by Roy's uncle, Val Archer, with his buggy and team of horses.  It was a cold day in early Spring when they arrived, and the girls needed warmer clothes.  The family went to the store, as Minnie and Maude skipped down the street shouting "we're going to get new coats".  Then they went home with Uncle Val.

"My grandmother, Ella Nicholson, was one of the sweetest ladies I have ever known.  She was a very religious person and read her Bible faithfully.  I can remember before we began our walk to church, she would take time to "starch" her face referring to the need to powder her face.  My grandmother's hair was white as snow, and she always wore it pulled back and parted in the middle.  My grandmother always remained close to her sister, Augusta Elizabeth Nicholson Archer.

"My mother and father, Bessie Bassett and Lon Willis, loved to sing.  They were requested to sing at many funerals.  Our son Mark Livesay can recall the time she sang "Rock of Ages" and "What a Friend We Have in Jesus" to him right before she died.  At her funeral, he requested that these two songs be sung.

"My husband is J. T. Livesay.  We were married January 12, 1946.  My husband and I are both retired and live in Bean Station, TN.  We are the parents of two sons, Dennis Livesay who married Rebecca Campbell, and Mark Livesay who married Lorri Kennedy.  My sister, Katherine married Lewis Wright, and my brother K. B. Willis married Thelma Smith."
