Bio and Links
Bio Photo In 1979 my father gave me an old photo of my grandfather taken in 1916. This sparked an interest in old family photographs. My mother add about twenty more to my collection, by then I needed to know who these people were and how they related to me and each other. This was the beginning of my genealogy.
I got interested in find-a-grave when I stumbled across a family members memorial while searching
for family information. I became a member when I realized I had photographs of family members I could post on there memorails. My involvement has only gotten greater as time passes. This inspired me to search for a couple lost family cemeteries that I did find and have now posted as the Old Nichols cemetery and Highfill/Taylor cemetery.
It has been a very rewarding experience.

Hugh Nichols info is incorrect
In "Arkansas, Northwestern Counties History, 1889", the bio of Henry Moomaw states that Mary is a widow already by 1889 -- notice that her 2 boys were born before 1889. 1900 census also says that she's a widow. 'Houstan' [Houston] is Hugh's given name in the 1860 census. The prison warden called Hugh Nichols was a different person,1742,633,1783;654,1743,803,1776;1432,1779,1585,1812;1621,1814,1729,1854;1469,1920,1626,1954;671,2341,823,2376;546,2479,697,2514;1565,2558,1675,2600;629,2585,737,2626;555,2619,708,2653

Hugh Nichols
Pat, there were 2 Hugh Nichols in the Franklin County, Arkansas area. The older one married Mollie Bonds and the younger one Mary Moomaw. I was wondering if you've merged the data from these 2 men?

Thank you for your time to search. I was hoping that there might be a stone. Is he listed in the cemetery list?
Thank you,

WoW, that was fantastic of you to reunite them. I bet it was a great visit.
I hope you have a copy of that photo, what a wonderful treasure that is.
Our family was very proud of Uncl Rob.

Hi Pat, thank you for the great photo of Uncle Rob. Did you edit the middle name? You suggested J for his middle and I thought I already had John. Either way, thank you.

Kid McCoy
Hi Pat: My eagle-eyed brother down in Tucson was checking the Kid McCoy page and noticed something. It got completely past me, but then he was an editor and proofreader in college. The heading for the page itself reads: Charles "Kid McMoy" Selby instead of McCoy. Just thought you might like to change that. You have a great day now. Larry

The "Kid"
I would love to read the bio and maybe make a suggestion or two. My email is I have been driving my wife crazy the past few days while I have been sitting at the computer researching The Kid. Whenever I bust out laughing, she says to me, "Okay, what did you find out now?" He was "The Real McCoy" indeed, larger than life, stranger than fiction, and to a writer, a gold-mine of never-ending material. The gift that just keeps giving. Take care now Pat, and have a great day!

Kid McCoy
Hi: Thanks for responding. I read your bio on Big Jim Holohan, and it is obvious you don't need any help in writing. Very nicely done. If I were you I would probably write one for the Kid too, and re-submit it for famous consideration. He was quite a character. I write detective novels and some historical fiction and have the Kid in mind for a project I may be working on by the first of the year. The nice thing about the Kid is . . . you can't make that stuff up! He was literally larger than life. I was born and grew up in Detroit and thought about him almost quite often walking by the old Tuller Hotel. Thanks again for all you do on Find a Grave. Take care.
