Do you have any additional information? Such as parents names, siblings names, spouse or children's names, date of birth, date of death, or where he may have lived? That makes it MUCH easier to find someone.
I think the information I have on him is not all the truth/ right, but here is what i have

charles f. nicholls dob 30 july 1879 waterloo, ont. canada and dod 1950 detroit michigan, father james ?? nicholls and mother ?? not sure sarah gillespie or gladsby can not find much information on either.  son is daniel le roy or donald not sure and his son is donald james leroy nicholls the dates and the wife of charles and james does not match. so i am confused.. need more information on the line!  thanks for any help!

From  Seems to confirm that Charles Francis parents are James R Nicholls and Sarah Gillespie.  Sarah's birth year is unclear - 1852-1857?  Sarah's mother appears to be Margaret, and she is possibly the dau of John and Margaret Gillespie b. IRE in the 1820's from census data in that region.  Didn't find any marriage records for James and Sarah.

Yes, it does seem to be...

Father: James R Nicholls

Mother: Sarah Gillespie

Here's a relevant image (of note, "uncle" listed as Thomas Nicholls as

birth certificate witness)

And it looks likely that Charles Nicholls crossed from Canada to Michigan in about 1948.
