Birth: 1826
Madison County

Death: Jun. 15, 1904
Madison County
Virginia, USA

Born ca. 1826, son of Peter and Elizabeth "Betsy" Nicholson. Married 1) Haney Nicholson. Married 2) Martha "Patsey" Nicholson, 5/15/1853. She died in 1856. Married 3) Winney Nicholson, sister of Martha.

Believed to be the same Garnett Nicholson mentioned in the following case (charged with house burning), from 1859:

"Hiram Nicholson was condemned by the circuit court of the county of Madison to one year's imprisonment in the penitentiary for house burning. The judge who tried this prisoner, certified that Garnett Nicholson was also tried at the same term of the court, upon the same indictment, and that he was found guilty, and sentenced to confinement in the county jail for one month, and to the payment of a fine of one cent. That the testimony in both cases proved that the parties were guilty; but if any difference were made in the punishment, the prisoner Hiram Nicholson should have been more favored than Garnett; and he recommended that instead of permitting Hiram to be sent to the penitentiary, he should be allowed to remain in jail for one month, and then pardoned. For these reasons, I first reprieved this prisoner for one month, and at the expiration of that time granted him a full pardon." - Source: Journal of the Senate of Virginia, p. 21.

10/23/1869 - Found in violation of United States Internal Revenue Laws, and arrested. Source.
