Death of Mrs. Nichols
Mrs. Elizabeth Browne Nichols, formerly of this county, died at the home of her son Dr. Thomas Nichols, near Bardstown, on last Friday night after an illness of several week’s duration. The deceased was born in Washington County in 1826, being one of the large family of Mr. and Mrs. Stephen Browne. In 1845 she married Mr. Thomas B. Nichols and they lived in the Pleasant Grove neighborhood for a number of years, a few years ago moving to Perryville, where Mr. Nichols died. About three years ago Mrs. Nichols began making her home with her son in Nelson County where she died. Perhaps a more lovable Christian character never lived than Mrs. Nichols. She enjoyed the respect and confidence of all with whom she was thrown in contact and her life was a beautiful example of Christianity.
Mrs. Nichols leaves one daughter, Mrs. F. R. Neale, of this place, and a son, Dr. Thomas Nichols of Bardstown. She was a sister of Mr. John Browne of Marion County, Stephen B. Browne of Missouri, and Mrs. Evan Rogers of this place. The remains were brought to this place and taken to Pleasant Grove for interment. Rev. Dr. Patterson, pastor of the Bardstown Presbyterian Church, conducted the funeral services.
