I found Henry C. Nichols buried in Oakfield Cemetery in Oakfield Township, Kent County, Michigan. Yesterday I went to a commemoration of his grave for recognition of his service in the Civil War by the Sons of Union Veterans, the Women's Relief Corps, and History Remembered. Back at the Oakfield Pioneer Heritage Society Museum library I found an index with lots more Nichols names paying taxes and voting:
Henry C. Nichols was the constable in 1873 per Oakfield Docket 1873/4 page 1.
John Nichols in the election Register 1853
John Henry Nichols voted 1882-1919(in that book) and is on the court docket in 1863.
John H Nichol R 4 Apr--Nov 1 paid taxes
T. E. Assessment Roll 1883 page 27.
Winfield S. Nichols voted March 31, 1894.
M. E. Nichols voted April 1906.
Bert Nichols voted April 1 1905.
Deak Nichols voted or paid taxes 12 Oct 1916, Nov 25, 1916.
Daniel Nichol 1884 R 30 Mar Nov probably the tax payer index. These last two do not show the final "s,"but it is a good bet they are from the same lineage.

The Museum is located at "11009" Podunk N. E. 3/4 mile south of M-57(Fourteen Mile Rd) and 1/2 mile west of Lincoln Lake Rd. There is no mail box. The museum will be open this afternoon (September 25, 2012) from 2 to 4pm. There will be a meeting the third Thursday of October. We Spring into the Past the first Sunday in May 2013.

Henry C. Nichols enlisted at Oakfield 13 August 1862. He was a corporal in Company F Michigan 21 Infantry. He was taken prisoner and held a Nolensville Prison (31 December 1862) in Tennessee until he was released in a prisoner exchanged. He was discharged for disability on 28 March 1863 at Detroit.
