Jacob Nickel was born in Russia to David and Maria (Krahn) Nickel. The family emigrated to Manitoba, Canada along with almost seven thousand other German Mennonites. Jacob's mother died before the family left Russia. They arrived in Quebec on 19 Jul 1875 aboard the S.S. Canadian; the same ship upon which his future wife, Maria Dueck, arrived.

In a family history, it is said that he worked on the riverboats with his brother, Dave, a couple years before getting married. All of Jacob and "Mary's" children except one son were born in Manitoba. That son, was born in 1886 in Marion Co., Kansas.
