Title: Thelma K. Bevan, Owen Meredith, & Robert M. McBride, The Nichols Family of North Georgia; and the Related Cansler, Black, Puett, Coffey, and Boone Families Nashville, 1960 (Georgia Archives)
Note: Enumerator J.J. Logan found Conrod Nichols, age 25, living between his father Adam Nichols and brother Jonathan Nichols. At home was his wife Adaline, 22, and son Jonathan, age one. "Coonrad C. Nichols" served as a Private in Smith's Legion, in the same company as his brother, Jonathan Beatty Nichols. The unit was reorganized into the 65th Georgia, under Colonel Robert Moore, in March 1863. In the fall of 1863, the Army of Tennessee surrounded the Union army in Chattanooga, Tennessee. For many months it appeared that the Yankee army would have to surrender for lack of supplies. The truth was that the Conferate army, based in the surrounding mountains, was starving as well. Coonrad Nichols was granted a 20 day furlough on 16 November 1863. He never returned. In his pension records, Conrad maintained that he was granted a two year furlough when his wife died. "Coonie" Nichols was named for his grandfather Conrad Cansler.
