Sarah was born Nov. 15, 1798. Samuel came to Washington County, Indiana, and
settled about one mile north of Hebron cemetery and church. Their house was
situated on the bluff of Elk Creek only a short distance from where Price's
mill was constructed. Sarah, Samuel's wife, died May4, 1855. After the
death of his wife, Samuel Nichols, made his home with his oldest child,
Elizabeth, to whom he gave his farm in return for taking care of him. He was
buried in Mt. Hebron cemetery beside his wife, Sarah, who had died
twenty-seven years before.

"Another of our old pioneers crossed the Jordan of death the 13th inst.
Samuel Nichols was buried at Mt. Hebron grave-yard the 14th. Mr. Nichols was
born in the year 1800 and was therefore 82 years old. He had been a citizen
of Gibson township for over fifty years."

came to Indiana and made her home with him. Edwin died Sept. 19, 1853, at
the age of 31. His wife, Margaret F., was born Sept. 26, 1820, and died Aug.

day my mother was born. She was thus the third wife of three brothers who
died in 1855, perhaps of some contagious disease.
