Biography of William U. Nichol
Adams County, NE Biographies





William Ure Nichol, funeral director, conducting business at Kenesaw, was born at Minden, Nebraska, on the 12th of November, 1888, his parents being W. E. and Ida (Ure) Nichol. The father settled in Minden in the early '80s and engaged in the hardware and furniture business until about 1909. Since then he has given his attention exclusively to the undertaking and to the wall paper business. For a long period he has been regarded as one of the most prominent and active business men of Minden and is well known throughout Kearney county.

Reared under the parental roof, William Ure Nichol attended the Minden high school and later became a student in Monmouth College at Monmouth, Illinois, where he pursued a four years' classical course, winning the degree of Bachelor of Arts. From early childhood he has been associated with his father in the undertaking business and was connected with a large undertaking establishment at Omaha before coming to Kenesaw. He arrived here, however, in 1914 and opened undertaking parlors, since which time he has conducted business as a funeral director and licensed embalmer.

On the 17th of July, 1914, at Sioux Falls, South Dakota, Mr. Nichol was married to Miss Marguerite Wallace, a daughter of the Rev. William Wallace, of Mitchell, South Dakota. They are members of the Presbyterian church at Kenesaw and occupy an enviable position in social circles, being accepted wherever true worth and intelligence are received as passports into good society.
