Birth: Feb. 15, 1856
Page County
Virginia, USA
Death: Mar. 30, 1934
Nokesville
Prince William County
Virginia, USA

A daughter of Joseph (1833-1916) and Elizabeth A. Knight Richards (1827-1911).

Mrs. Polly Ann Nichols, age 78 years, 1 month and 15 days, widow of Jordan Nichols, of Ida, died Friday at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Noah S. Miller, near Nokesville, Prince William Co. Mrs. Nichols, who was the daughter of the late Joseph Richards, of near Ida, is survived by only one member of her generation - Mrs. William H. Woodward, who lives near Ida. Her father was one of the best known citizens of the Ida neighborhood. Many years ago she was married to Jordan Nichols, a native of Madison Co. After their marriage they established their home in the Ida neighborhood. Her death was due to the infirmities incident to old age, in addition to a complication of diseases. The funeral was conducted on Sunday by Elders D. H. Blough and Ernest L. Cave of the Brethren Church. For many years she was a member of the Brethren Church before leaving this county holding her membership with Mt. Zion church, near Luray. Mrs. Nichols was the mother of thirteen children. Of this number the following survive: Charles Lester, Bennie, and Edward Nichols; Mrs. Noah S. Miller, Mrs. Edward Emerson, of Shenandoah, and Mrs. Albin Berry, of Washington. Her funeral on Sunday was attended by Mrs. R.C. Broyles and daughter, Miss Elsie and Miss Kate Shenk of Luray, and Mr. and Mrs. B.F. Jenkins and Mrs. W.H. Woodward, of Ida.

No Headstone. Grave is likely marked by a simple, uninscribed field stone
