Read Nichols was born in Bowdoin, March 11, 1822, and came to Bath in 1839 to learn the masons' trade, which business he has followed to the present time, and to which he has added dealing in baled hay, drain tile, cement, lime, and brick. He has served in the Common Council three terms and as an overseer of the poor five years; was chief engineer of the fire department two years, having worked his way up to that position in a twenty years' service. He helped work the historical Kennebec engine when its tub had to be filled by the use of buckets. In 1890 he extended his business by establishing a brick yard at the western end of Western Avenue at Round Meadow. January 26, 1846, he married Rachel Ann Little, daughter of Capt. Charles Little of Bath, and their children living are: Charles L., Clara A., and Emma A. (Mrs. Daniel Pierce).
