William Lemmon Nichols, 67 of 2219 Kirby, a lifelong resident of Dallas and son of a pioneer, died Monday at a local hospital. He recently retired from the real estate and investment business, in which he was active many years. The Dallas Union Terminal stands on property which once belonged to the Nichols estate.

After service in the Confederate Army as a Lieutenant Colonel during the War Between the States, H. C. Nichols, Mr. Nichols' father, came to Texas. In 1872, while serving as Deputy Sheriff here under Sheriff J. M. Brown, he was killed as he attempted to arrest one of the notorious Younger brothers.

Mr. Nichols was educated at Texas A & M College, receiving an M. E. degree in 1891. While there he was active in founding the Ross Volunteers. He married Miss Mary S. Smith 41 years ago.

Surviving are his wife; two sons, William L. Nichols, Jr. and Perry B. Nichols; a daughter, Mrs. J. B. Collins; a brother, C. H. Nichols, Jr.; and two grandchildren, Byron Clark and Carol Collins, all of Dallas. A second daughter, Mrs. Mary Isabel Clark, died several years ago.

Funeral services will be held at 2 p. m. Tuesday at the Guardian Funeral Church with Dr. L. N. D. Wells officiating. Pallbearers will be Charles G. Rick, Lloyd T. Andrews, Quentin W. Becket, F. B. Clark, Harry Collins, and J. R. Heafer.
