    I think he may be referring to the revenge killings of Samuel Nichols and his son Cromwell (spelling?) NicholsNichols that occurred at the Nichols home on or about March 8, 1865. A second son, Austin, had his jaw blown off, was left for dead, yet he survived.

    My ancestor, Celestine Josiah Ward, perpetrated the murders to avenge the lynching of his (said to be all 7 brothers, but 2 are confirmed.) During the civil war.

    Celestine is said to have asked the 3 Nichols men to “step out of this house so I won’t have to kill you in front of your children.”

    He is also implicated the killing of several other men (approx 5 others) who were also part of the lynching of his brothers.

    Celestine went on to die an old man, the father of 17 children. Apparently, whenever someone would try to prosecute him, Celestine would just burn down the courthouse. ( possibly as many as 14 acts of arson between the killings of March 1864 and Celestine’s death in 1891.)

    Please contact me if you can provide information- I am writing his biography.

      Hello Amy McElhaney Butler,

      Greetings from Germany. My 2nd and 3rd Grandfathers, Samuel and his son Coval Nichols were murdered by Teen Ward, who was Covals’ brother in law. Covals’ brother Austin was shot through the mouth and played dead in order to survive. According to our family history, and that means from Teen Wards sister Sarah, who was my 2nd Grandmother and she was there when it happened. Her brothers with hanged by a CSA Cavalry Unit that was starving, and so they killed a few cattle that belonged to the Ward family, when the two Ward brothers protested, they were beaten and hung. The Ward family were Creek Indians, and that may also have something to do with that action. According to our family, Coval and his father Sam were members of the CSA 1st Florida Infantry Home Guard, and they had tried to stop the hangings of the Ward brothers but were threatened also by the CSA cavalry commander. This action was a total misunderstanding and Teen Ward (my 2nd Great Uncle) over reacted. To this day, there is still a family feud between the Ward and Nichols family because of this unnecessary action. All the best to you and your family. Larry D. Nichols .
