David Nichols1

Identity CLUEDavid Nichols has been identified by the source as a possible relative of the subject of her brick wall, Sarah "Sally" (__?__) Williamson. It's even possible, maybe, that "Nichols" was Sarah's maiden surname. When her husband Isaac Williamson died, Sarah "Sally" moved next to a David Nichols who owned the property. He was from Braintree, Orange County, Vermont.1
