The name Nichols Cemetery was given this cemetery by Mr. Spencer Waters probably due to the only known person buried there which was a Revolutionary soldier William Nichols. We know this cemetery went by other names such as Clover Lot - Clover Field - Johnson - and Old Delashaw Place.

From the survey of Spencer & Betty Waters the following description was obtained.

" Nichols Cemetery - Location: Go South on Alexander Motorway (Co Rd 86) to the boundary line between Dallas Yeager and the Bankhead Forest. Go East along boundary line to corner where a brass survey marker on a pipe driven into the ground is located, inscribed; U.S. General Land Office Survey 1/4S-36 1/4S-1 1933. On a tree, a few yards South of this marker is another of metal on a tree, inscribed; T8S - R7W Sec 1 N-80 W-40 Some 100 yards due South (along a fence row) of these markers are several graves, with a cedar tree in their midst, without any markers. What stones that had been used as head markers, were sandstone. My informant, George Melson stated that the grand parents of late Ike Johnson who farmed on the Alexander Place for so long, was buried here - the Nichols family. He also stated that when he visited the site in years past, there were some 15 to 20 graves here. Locally the older residents refer to the land as the "Old Nobe Delashaw Place",or the "Clover Field", as it was called, but is now part of the William B. Bankhead National Forest." Mr. Waters makes later notes that say (We have now learned that this Ike Johnson and his wife are buried here).
