Correspondence and receipts relating to Ransom Nichols, an Athens resident involved in local politics.
Fair to poor
Listed in the 1850 census as a farmer, Ransom Nichols served as a Constable and at least campaigned for the position of Tax Receiver. He died in 1856.
The correspondence includes a letter addressed to Christie C. Nichols from E. W. Nichols and two addressed to Ransom, one of which is from James Hudson, Ransom’s nephew; the second is signed, but the name is indecipherable. The remainder of the subcollection appear to be receipts for goods and services.
