Yes, we had made note of this John Nicholson before and discussed it briefly, but it has been quite some time ago. When working on the Campbell, TN deeds for Joseph Bowling family, I discovered that a John Nicholson also was in Campbell Co. and witnessed a deed for the Bowlings.
The deeds I have in Joseph Bowling’s notes that John Nicholson appears in:
pg 250-252 - 11 Mar. 1790. Thomas Roberts and Margaret, his wife, of 96 Dist., to Joseph Bowlin for L6, 55 acres in 96 Dist. Wit: James Scott, John Nickelson, Elijah Owen. James Scott made oath 12 Feb. 1791. [Source: Pendleton District, S.C. Deeds, 1790-1806; compiled by Betty Willie]
Campbell Co., TN Deeds, 1806-1831
Abstracted, compiled and Indexed by Paul W. Lemasters, 2001
Deed Book A, December 1806 - May 1810
A: pp 9-10. 12 Aug. 1807. Joel Bowling to Jonathan Rook. Consideration $200. 100 acres land on North side of Clinch River....near Henderson and Companies corner.....on North Bank of Clinch River.....\s\ Joel (his X mark) Bowling. Wit. William Hoskins & John Nickelson. Acknowledged Sept. Session 1807. Reg. 14 Nov 1807.
[Note: John Nickelson was in Pendleton, SC and witnessed the deed when Joseph & Valentine Bowling bought their land in 96 District in 1790. - DJ]
Joel Bowling is the son of Joseph & Valentine. I have more Campbell Co. deeds for Joseph and family posted on the Bolling5 documents page under “transcribed deeds” if you want to look at the rest.

Well, it looks like we might be some sort of double cousins since you're related to the Napiers, too.
Thank you for sending the info below. I had never notice this before...... look at the name Nicholson.
Pendleton Co., SC Deeds 1790--1806
p. 250-252. 11 Mar 1790. Thomas Roberts & Margaret his wife of 96th Dist to Joseph Bowlin for L6 [pounds], 55 acres in 96th Dist. Wit: James Scott, John Nicholson, Elijah Owens. James Scott made oath 12 Feb 1791.
This Joseph Bowlin is the one who married Valentine Haley, d/o David Haley of Pittsylvania and later of Anderson Co., TN. Now look at the Nicholson who married Lincoln Amis the son of John Amis and Katy Bowling below. I wonder if she is the daughter or grandaughter of John Nicholson?
I noticed your reference to William and Christopher "at Thomas Amis' store in Rogersville."
I thought you all might be interested in seeing this Bowling/Amis link :

22. John AMIS, born April 05, 1773 in Duplin Co., NC142; died August 05, 1807 in Manchester, Clay Co., KY143. He was the son of 44.Thomas AMIS and 45. Mary Alice GALE. He married 23. Catherine "Katy" BOLLING 1794 in Hawkins, Hawkins Co., TN.
23. Catherine "Katy" BOLLING, born May 20, 1777 in Hawkin Co., TN144; died Abt. 1850 in Clay Co., KY. She was the daughter of 46.James BOLLING and 47. Sarah "Sally" BLEVINS.
Children of John AMIS and Catherine BOLLING are:
11 i. Lucinda AMIS, born January 19, 1805 in Redbird, Knox/Lincoln Co., KY; died March 20, 1876 in Owsley Co., KY; marriedJohn "Mucker Jack" Hammons BAKER April 21, 1825 in Clay Co., KY.
ii. Thomas Bolling AMIS, born December 06, 1796 in Rodgersville, Hawkins Co., TN145; died August 23, 1833 in Clay Co., KY146; married Mary " Polly" ASHER March 19, 1825 in Clay Co., KY; born 1808147; died in Y.
iii. Lincoln AMIS, born 1798 in Goose Creek, Clay Co., KY; died in Y; married Anne NICHOLSON June 02, 1810 in Clay Co., KY.
iv. Alice Gale AMIS, born December 15, 1800 in Goose Creek, Clay Co., KY148; died 1877149; married Thomas AMIS; born Abt. 1795 in TN150; died in Y.

Wilburn AMIS, born December 03, 1802 in Goose Creek, Clay Co., KY151; died July 13, 1874 in Clinton, Vermillion Co., IN151; married (1) Francis Ann DAVIS in TN; born August 04, 1804 in Hawkin Co., TN151; died November 05, 1840 in Clinton, Vermillion Co., IN151; married (2) Elizabeth SOUTHARD 1840.

viii. Bolin AMIS, born March 15, 1808; died Bef. 1810 in Clay Co., KY152
It looks like the Thomas Amis of the Rogersville (Hawkins Co., TN) store is likely the same as the above father of John Amis who married Catherine Bolling in 1794.

I'm not sure about the Woodson connection, but they intermarried with the Hughes. Here's John Bullington in Henrico/Goochland with the Hughes. As you all remember the earliest James Bowling of Goochland/Cumberland was somehow connected to these Hughes and to Christopher Clark who loaned him a considerable amounts of money.
"Colonial Wills of Henrico County, Virginia Part Two 1737-1781 with Addenda (revised)," Abstracted and Compiled by Benjamin B. Weisiger, III
Court 7 January 1722
Will of Charles Hudlesey presented by Susanna Hudlesey, his executrix and proved by oath of Elizabeth Bibe and solemn affirmation of Stephen Hughes, a Quaker, two of the witnesses; John Gun and Robert Hughes, security. Roger Carol, Fran's Eppison, Thomas Biby and Peter Baise to appraise estate.
On petition of Robert Hughes (George, son of Ralph Briggs, dec'd, relinquishing his right thereto) he is granted administration of said Ralph Brig's estate; Stephen Hughes and John Webb, security, Robert Carter, John Bullington, Jacob Michaux and Thos. Edwards to appraise the estate.
On another note, I'm surprised that Ann Bowling born July 1749 [married William] had children as late as 1796. Could Nancy Bowling who married Francis Woods be her grandaughter instead? By elimination, wouldn't this William bca 1740 have to the William listed with Christopher on the 1767 tax list in Pittsylvania since James bca 1756 was there with Christopher in Lee Co.., VA 1801-1803 and quite likely the same William who was with Christopher at Thomas Amis' store in Rogersville?
For Carol, the Roberts who connect to Phillip Roberts and Jesse Roberts came from Roberts Cove [wherever that is] and the DNA matches. Perhaps we can find William Bowling lurking around these Roberts earlier.
Your thoughts, please.
Ernie, isn't there a Bullington married into the Woodson family somewhere? Seems like there is some controversy about it and and the Archer family involved someway?
