Mrs. (McDonald) Nicholson was born in Longford County, Ireland in 1837 and left an orphan at the age of three years. she came to America when about thirteen, where a brother and sister had preceded her and on her arrival found that her sister had died and her brother was dying from yellow fever which was then raging in the south. After a few years she moved from New Orleans to Maysville, Kentucky, where later she was married to Michael Nicholson, who died about thirteen years ago. In 1871 they came to Chapman and settled on the farm where she resided until her death which occurred March 16th 1909. The funeral service was held from St. Michael's Church Thursday, March 18th, and all that was mortal of Dear Grandma was tenderly laid to rest in St. Patrick's Cemetery, beside her husband and daughter, there to rest until the Judgement Day.
The Remembrance of her cheerful disposition and deeds of kindness stand as a monument to her memory. To know her was to love her, to her children though grown to manhood and womanhood, she was ever young and they will miss her from their midst and in the days to come her place will be vacant in the home from which she is gone. To her grandchildren she was ever the dearest and best on earth and indeed every child that came about her was to her a welcome guest. To her friends, and they legion, she was ever loyal and true. To sum it all up she was a good mother, a good neighbor and a good Christian woman and her memory will be long cherished by those who know her best. May she rest in Peace.
You are gone from us Dear Mother and the grave has hid your face. But we hope to meet again and see you in that bright and glorious place. Your work on earth is ended and noble it was done. May rest now be your portion until the judgement morn.
