1-5-1906 - NICHOLS - ADELAIDE - - MRS. - BARD - 1865 - 1 4 1906 - LITTLE ROCK - Death of Mrs.Nichols=One of the saddest events in the social life of Forrest City, was the death of Mrs.John M.Nichols, which occurred on last Wednesday, Jan.4,1906. She was chairman of the Cosmos Club committee, that on New Year's night gave such a brilliant musical entertainment, and it was a direct shock to her many friends to learn the next day she had pneumonia. Such however, was the case. With the strength of will and straight forwardness of purpose, which characterized all of her acts, she put aside physical discomfort and performed her manifold duties that evening, with grace and success. The when every duty was performed, she succumbed to the fell disease that had already laid its wasting hand upon her. As she fought the disease, at the last her family was around her. The devoted husband, and two bright children, Bard and Helen, her mother and only brother, Mr.W.D.Bard of Little Rock. On Thursday morning, the religious ceremonies were performed at the Presbyterian church by Rev.P.H.Hensley. Then the casket was borne to the railroad, for shipment to Little Rock, with internment the same day, in the family plot, besides the grave of her father. Adelaide Bard was born in in Louisville, Ky., in 1865, to Mr.& Mrs.J.H.Bard. Her school life was passed in that city, where she was twice graduated from the Female High School. In early life she joined the Presbyterian church, and remained a consistent membrer until her death. She was a resident of Forrest City about seventeen years. In 1890, she married Mr.John Merritt Nichols, of this place, and two children blessed this union.

Mrs.Francis had for several years divided her time between this place and Memphis with nieces who had been indebted to her for loving motherly care. It was during her annual visit to Mrs.Fussell that she was stricken with the fatal disease. For weeks all that food, care, and assidious and scientific nursing could do, was used to alleviate and if possible, to banish disease, but all proved unavailing. The end came quietly-a fitting close to a useful Christian life. Mrs.E.F.Willis and Mrs.Shepherd, of Memphis, were with her as was Mrs.Fussell. The body was taken to Memphis for internment.

Early in life he moved to Arkansas and settled at old Pineville, near the present site of Vanndale, where until the civil war he was engaged in the mercantile business.

After the war he settled down at old Wittsburg, where he ran a hotel a number of years till the town was removed to Vanndale. Here he continued in the hotel business for some time.
