1891 Moses Nichols Genealogy Booklet, SAR, DAR, New Jersey & Michigan

New Jersey, and his burial on the south side of the First Church burying ground was witnessed by John Camp when a boy and described by him to Nichols descendants now living. The two story, frame, double house in which he lived, remodeled, still stands on the east side of Washington Street between Marshall and Court Street. (see map). He was a farmer, and a house and boat builder (and a maker of coffins, when required, as a branch of his regular business), employing two or three apprentices; and was a man of some prominence, being called upon on many occasions in arbitrations by those relying on his good judgment. He was accorded the distinction of reading the Declaration of Independence, one Fourth of July, and, joining the church in his later years was very active in its support. Capt. Robert was pursued by the British on the run across the Newark meadows and barely escaped with his life. A chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution, D.A.R. in New York bears his name."
