William Higbee Nichols married Mary E Metheney 13 Oct 1853 in Benton County, Tennessee. They were the parents of three children: John Wesley Nichols (1854 to sometime after 1880), Virginia Catherine Nichols Dowdy (1859-1931) and Eliza Anna Nichols Corlew (1863-1900). Their marriage ended sometime around 1865, when Mary may have died; William and his three children migrated to Stoddard County, Missouri about that time.

William married Mrs. Rebecca Catherine Dowdy Gallaway Haggard 18 Jul 1869 in Stoddard County, Missouri. They became the parents of five children -- all born in Stoddard County between 1871 and 1877. Three of the five died in early childhood in Stoddard County. Daughters Theodosia 'Dosia' and Lillian 'Lillie' Pearl are found with William and Rebecca in Young County in the 1900 census.

William Higbee Nichols was a veteran of the U S Civil War, having served in the Confederate forces.
