I really can't help you on your NICHOLS quest but do know a couple of
Howard's brothers are mentioned in Davis' Ancient Landmarks of Plymouth,
Genealogical Register (Part II) - part of the USGenWeb site for the town of
Plymouth, under the NICHOLS section. I suspect his sisters may be mentioned
under their husbands' surnames sections. The transcription of the
Genealogical Register is on-line. Its index is hyperlinked to the surname

Not really. There are many many books and CDs out there containing the VRs
of Plymouth. To see a partial list of them with look-up request
capabilities for a couple of them go to the "Plymouth Look-Up Library"
webpage - part of the USGenWeb site for the town of Plymouth:
Scroll down a bit and click on "Records." Many of these sources are
available through the NEHGS Circulating Library, local library's loan
program, on microfilm through FHCs across the country, at many large size
public libraries, at genealogy book dealers, at many genealogy societiess'
libraries across the country, etc... from whence most genealogy researchers
get their sources and do their research.
