      From The Globe Free Press, August 4, 1932
      -Adolph Carl Nicholas
      -Obituary (spelling not changed)
      -Adolph Carl Nicholas, son of Earnest and Minerva Nicholas, was born in Nevada Co., Iowa, June 4th, 1976, and died at St. Mary's Hospital, Decatur, Ill., on Thursday morning, July 28, 1932 at the age of 56 years, 1 month and 24 days.
      -When he was about 24 years old, Mr. Nicholas went to Oregon, where on *April 22, 1908, he married Mrs. Addie Clement of Cottage Grove, Ore.
      -In 1912 the Nicholas family came back to Iowa, and after trying different locations they moved to Kansas City, Mo., in 1920, and later to Independence, Mo.
      -The life of Mr. Nicholas was devoted to farming until ill health forced his retirement in 1930. He suffered from a complication of diseases being practically helpless since February 1932.
      -In order that he might receive better care, he was recently taken to Decatur, Ill., but he soon passed beyond the need of human help and care.
      -Mr. Nicholas was a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church in Independence, Mo., and of Cottage Grove Lodge No. 68, I. O. O. F., Cottage Grove, Ore.
      -Mr. Nicholas was preceded in death by a son Ralph,* May 1918 and by a daughter, *Mrs. Hazel Bates in Feb. 1932.
      -He is survived by his wife, Mrs. Addie Nicholas, a stepson, Claude Clement of Decatur, three brothers, Fred Nicholas of Kansas City, Mo., Byde Nicholas of Rippey, and Ralph Nicholas of Denver, Colo., a sister, Mrs. Addie Mullin of Kansas City, and a half brother, Henry Michaels of Decatur, Ill.
      -*the "8" could be a "3" - it was hard to read.
