Helen Rowena Nicholson
Dear Neerland, was hoping you might add this obituary to Helen, as well as connect her to the husband Lloyd Leslie Nicholson, and parents Henry and Cecelia, I believe they are in your edit.
Very appreciated, thank you, Kim

Andrew Swemline of Loraine is dead. He died on Friday last at 2 o'clock. He was in his twenty-first year. He was the eldest son of Mr. And Mrs. Swemline. His death was caused by heart disease. All will sympathize with Mrs. Swemline and her afflicted family. It was but recently that the young man's father was killed by a sawing machine.
