Re: Wake County Census Look up

In 1900 census, John and Sarah Nicholas say they have been married 10 years, so I looked up their marriage license.

License issued Sept 25, 1889 Wake County says:

John Nichols of Wake Co, 27, son of Thomas Nichols and Mbray (?) Nichols, the father dead and the mother living, resident of Danvill and Sarah Rudd of Wake Co, 28, daughter of Barney Rudd and Ann Rudd, the father dead and the mother living, resident of Wake Co.

They were married Sept 27th, 1889 by Q B Gullie JP at the residence of James Russ in Oak Grove Township. Witnesses were H R Cooley and J W Gullie.

I think this is your John in 1880 census.

North Carolina, Wake County, Oak Grove Township, #462:

William Gulley 62, farmer
Melissa 47 wife
Quinton B 20 son farmer
Valeria 17 daughter
John W 13 son
Henrietta 12 daughter
Adelia 8 daughter
John Nichols 22 laborer Farm Labor NC NC SC

It looks like the Q B Gullie who married John and Sarah in 1889 was the Quinton B Gulley that John was living with in 1880.

I have hunted everywhere I can think of to find John in 1870 and I can't locate him, but I have to tell you that I have families who are missing in that same census. They mostly lived in the New Light area of Wake and the Brassfield\Beaver Dam area of Granvillle.

However, I think this is him in 1860.

North Carolina, Wake County, North Western District #656:

Thomas Nicholes 26 Farmer RE value 2770, PP value 146 or 746 (hard to tell) born NC
Milba 21 SC
John 4 SC
Caterine 2 SC
Milba 4/12 NC
William Hubberd 15 farm laborer NC
Cady Chavis 24 House Labor NC
Mary Chavis 3 NC

I wanted to look at John's death certificate because if he died in 1930, there should be one, but I didn't find it. How sure are you on the date of his death? I found him in 1910 and 1920 census, but not 1930.

Hope this helps, Barbara Allen
