Mrs. R. S. Nicholson died at her home in this city Tuesday, April 16, at 6:30 a.m., after a lingering sickness. The funeral was held from the Methodist church Wednesday at 2:30, Rev. Barton conducting the services.

Mrs. R. Simmons Nicholson was born in Frankfort, Indiana, in 1825 and was married to Geo. Nicholson in 1856. She was the mother of five daughters, four of whom, with her aged companion, survive her. She was of Irish and German ancestry, her maternal grandfather being Lord John Catheart of Cork, Ireland, who came to America in the beginning of a religious oppression, sacrificing title and fortune to religious principles, he being a staunch Protestant.

The deceased had lived a quiet retired life devoting her energies to her family and charitable and religious duties. She had been a great sufferer for 30 years from a distressing type of stomach trouble. She will be greatly missed and mourned by her family and all who intimately knew her.
