States: Virginia: Hanover
in 1777, Capt. George Nichols formed Company "C" of the 2nd Virginia Regiment in Hanover County. My ancestor, Adam Jones, was in that Regiment and probably in Nichols company, although I do not have positive proof yet.
Three years before, the 1754 roster of the Granville County, NC listed a George Nichols. In the same company in Granville were a number of men who were originally from Hanover/New Kent County, VA. I believe that this is the same George Nichols who formed Company "C" of the 2nd Regiment in Hanover Co., VA in 1777. Any information on George Nichols will be appreciated.
