Alfred Osborn Pope Nicholson
Birth: Aug. 31, 1808
Death: Mar. 23, 1876

Civil War US Senator. Elected as a Senator from Tennessee to the United States Senate, serving first from from 1840 to 1842 (having been appointed to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Senator Felix Grundy), then from 1859 to 1861. When Tennessee seceeded from the Union prior to the outbreak of the Civil War he left his Senate seat, but did not resign from it. Subsequently he and nine other Southern Senators were expelled in absentia. After the war he served as Tennessee's Supreme Court Chief Justice. His son, Alfred O.P. Nicholson, Jr. served as a Corporal during the war in the famed 1st Tennessee (CSA) Infantry. (bio by: Russ Dodge)
