Hello all, I hate to send out this terrible news on the passing of Dr. Carl Nichols. He has done so much to further genealogy and he also contributed lots of work for our chapter. He will be greatly missed. He was scheduled to speak at our April 12, 2014, Dutch Fork Reunion.

It was hard to believe so I looked up the funeral homes in Abbeville (Harris Funeral Home) to make sure I heard it correctly. Here is his obit

Dr. Carl 'Woody' Nichols, Jr.

Dr. Carl W. 'Woody' Nichols, Jr., 68, of Atlanta, GA died Thursday, March 13, 2014 at the Dekalb Medical Center. He was born in Abbeville, SC to Josephine Raines Nichols and the late Carl W. Nichols, Sr.

Dr. Nichols was a graduate of Erskine College and Emory Medical University.
