Biography of Mrs. Mary A. Nice (w/o John)


Nice, Mrs. Mary A., Tonawanda. John Nice was born at Kindenheim-on-the-Rhine, in Bavaria, near the city of Worms, October 13, 1813, and came to the United States in 1836. The family settled in the town of Newstead. In 1844 he married Mary A., daughter of Frederick L. Pfizenmaier. In 1848 he moved to Grand Island, where he passed his life, being recognized as a practical, successful farmer and business man. In 1866 he formed the firm of Nice & Hinkey, which is continued at the present day. Mr. Nice was one of the representative men of the town, progressive and energetic. He ever advanced the best interests of his town and its people, serving as supervisor for four years, and elected to the Assembly in 1873-74. His death, which occurred in 1883, was a loss not only to his family, but to all who knew him. Of him it may be said, "An honest man is the noblest work of God."
