Genesee Confrence Journal
1877, Page 63

Rev. David Nichols, was born in the State of New York, in 1805, and died in Irving, Kansas, in 1877. He was converted in early life, and joined the Methodist Episcopal church. In 1831, being recommended by the Boston Circuit, he was admitted into the Genesee Conference. For thirty years he did effective work, while for sixteen years, he has sustained a superannuated relation to the conference. Brother Nichols possessed a clear, strong mind, uncompromising integrity of character and a devotion to the church, and the cause of God which knew no abatement, even under the infirmities of advancing years. In the pulpit, he was calm, self-possessed and earnest. His sermons were well digested, clear, and at times delivered with convincing logic and force. His labors in the ministry were often rewarded with revivals of considerable extent and power. And he must be placed among those noble and able men of God, whose work for the Master, has given us the goodly heritage of our grand Genesee Conference. He leaves a wife and two daughters to mourn his loss, and claim our sympathies and prayers. The following is a list of his appointments: In 1830, previous to being admitted to conference, he was employed on Boston Circuit; 1831-1832, Pembroke; 1833, Eden; 1834, Niagara; 1835-1836, Lewiston; 1837, Middleport; 1838, Alcott and Somerset; 1839, Middleport; 1840, Lancaster; 1841-1842, Rushford; 1843, Eden and Evans; 1844, Knowlesville; 1845, Cambria and Porter; 1846-1847, Pekin; 1848, Warsaw; 1849, Alexander; 1850, Akron; 1851, Superannuated; 1852, Niagara Falls; 1853, Superannuated; 1854, Millville; 1855, Porter; 1856, Pavilion; 1857, Covington; 1858, Carlton; 1859-1860, Cary; 1861, Scottsville; 1862-1869, Supernumerary; 1870-1877, Superannuated.
