This is my great grandfather, Gordon Inge Nichols. He was born in 1875 in Hot Springs Arkansas and passed away two years before I was born, so I never got to meet him. One of his many trades was being a post rider and his route was around the town of Malvern. I believe this photo dates about 1900.
This is Gordon with my great grandmother Sara Adaline Fitzhugh. He looks younger in this photo so I think this might be a marriage photo- which would date it 1897. I've always thought that Gordon had a stern look about him! His middle name Inge is German, but I have not traced his family past Tennessee and Alabama in the early 1820's.
This is the only 4 generation photo I have of any of my family.
This is Sara in the wheelchair, holding a very pudgy me,
and my mom and grandmother.
