RE: Nickerson headstone pictures
Hello Linda!! Thanks!! I am so glad that you are able to help others also. It's very rewarding.

I checked with the cemetery office today (Graceland) and the caretaker stated that the two Nickerson's that I listed for you are the only ones in the cemetery with that last name. Sorry!!

I did go to the library today and came across a few items that may interest you.

1. Record of Burial Permits, Book 1 Page 24 -- Benjamin F. Nickerson. Died December 16, 1917 aged 66 years, 2 months & 8 days. Died from heart disease.

2. There was a Minnie Nickerson that married a William Coulter.

3. In the military records there was a Paul Edward Nickerson listed. F = B.F. Nickerson and M = Fidelia (Washburn) Nickerson. DOB: October 28, 1896 in Webster City, Iowa. Listed under the World War 1 records.

4. Also came across an obituary for Roy Everett Nickerson, 10 month old son of Mr. & Mrs. B.F. Nickerson. Listed in the Webster City Tribune on Friday, December 18, 1891. Died on December 12, 1891 at the family home. It stated that the family had the funeral in Webster City, but took the train back to their old home in Heyworth, Illinois and buried the little boy there.

I think that if the family took the one boy back to Illinois, that maybe the other ones may be there also? But, I don't know for certain.

I will keep looking here to see if there is anything else that I can find for you. If you have any thing in particular that you are looking for or any other questions, just let me know. Thanks!!

Cathy :)
