Mrs. Nickerson Dies, Aged 92
Mrs. Ella Nickerson, one of the few remaining Californians genuinely entitled to call themselves “pioneers,” passed away last night at the home of her son, Fred Nickerson, 383 Clay street, Monterey. Mrs. Nickerson was born 92 years ago in Ohio and as a young girl traveled across the plains from her native state to California, making the trip in a covered wagon drawn by oxen. There were a hundred wagons in the train that made the long, hard overland journey from Ohio in 1862. She settled in Marysville, where she continued to live until coming to Monterey in 1900, 40 years ago. She had resided here since that time. Besides her son, Mrs. Nickerson leaves a daughter, Mrs. W.L. Mecum of Lodi. Freeman-Rancadore mortuary is in charge of arrangements for the funeral, announcement of which will be made later.
