Born in Rhode Island about 1763. Veteran of the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812. His daughter Mary Ann, a.k.a. Annie*, married Uriah Short, both of whom are buried in this cemetery. *(Not to be confused with his son Simeon Jr.'s daughter Mary Ann, who only lived to age 21.)

"SIMEON NICHOLS, a veteran both of the revolution and of the war of 1812, came from near Hartford, Conn., and settled on Coxe's patent, although he had not nor did he claim any title to the land; but he was of that class of pioneers who were honestly endeavoring to make a beginning in life, and in light of subsequent events it is fair to assume that Mr. Nichols' hopes were realized, for he became firmly established and was one of the solid men of Owego in later years. He raised to maturity nine children, all of whom, except Simeon, Jr., William, and two sisters, removed to Michigan."

"Simeon Nichols and his father, Caleb, came to Tioga county in 1791, locating on the Jewett Flats near Apalachin where they had purchased several hundred acres. The family at that time consisted of eight children, of whom Simeon was the second child. Caleb Nichols died in 1804, and soon after Simeon sold the farm and purchased what is now the Mersereau farm near Mutton Hill. Simeon died May 16, 1856, aged 93 years."
