Hello! I am researching Lorenzo D. Nichols! He first comes across the Loudoun County Virginia Tax rolls in 1831 residing with a man name Herod Thomas. I do not know if this is the same Lorenzo D. Nichols mentioned in this thread, but if it is then I am definitely intrigued! And the timeline fits (1830 losing parent) I have been UNABLE to find his parents. This Lorenzo was born in 1816 and later married Amanda M. Boyce in Missouri. If any of you have information on this Lorenzo I would LOVE to find out more!!
