Husband to Mary Ann Phillips Nigh
115th Regiment Illinois Vol Infantry
Isaac Nigh was born in Fairfield county, Ohio, December 2, 1829, and passed away at his home in Humboldt, on South Ninth street, Tuesday, October 17, 1916.
Mr. Nigh was united in marriage September 29, 1853, in Ohio, to Miss Ann Phillips, who survives him. Three children were born to them, one of whom, Samuel Nigh, passed away about twenty-two years ago. The other son, Mr. Frank Nigh, lives at Iola and the daughter, Mrs. Mary Gleason, in Humboldt. There are also eight grandchildren and three great-grandchildren surviving.
Mr. Nigh was a member of the 15th Regiment, U. S. Regulars, in the war with Mexico, enlisting when he was eighteen years of age, and also fought throughout the Civil war in Co. G, 115th Ills. Volunteers. He was the last of the Mexican war veterans residing in Allen county.
More than forty years ago Mr. Nigh brought his family to Kansas and settled on a farm five miles south of Humboldt. Later they moved to town, where he and his wife have resided for about twenty-three years.
Although so far advanced in years, Grandpa Nigh had still been able to get about until a month or so before his death, when he was stricken blind and from that time continued to fall until death relieved him of his suffering.
