Richard Nicley

Country Connections

This story begins August 6, 1945, on Black Fox Road in upper Union County, Tennessee, where the cries of a baby newly born to Clyde and Kate Thomas Nicley echoed through the hollows and hills.
This child’s name was Richard Nicley. It was late summer and at night you could hear the katydids and whippoorwills while enjoying the cooling night air. Life was changing in the mountains as World War II was spinning down and soldiers were returning home to their families.
