William T. Nichols
Rutland Daily Herald & Globe, April 11, 1882:
His friends in Rutland have received the sad intelligence of the death at his home in Maywood, Ill., on Monday, of Colonel W. T. Nichols, formerly of this place. He was ill less than a week, having been taken down with pneumonia on Tuesday last. The remains will be brought to Rutland for interment. His age was about 54 years. He leaves a wife and two children. Colonel Nichols was prominent in business and political circles in this town and county several years ago, previous to his removal to Maywood. He was by profession a lawyer and while a resident of Rutland held the office of State's attorney, represented the town in the House and was one of the county delegation in the State Senate. In the rebellion he was colonel of the Fourteenth Vermont Volunteers, and was distinguished for his coolness and bravery on the field of Gettysburgh, in which battle his regiment played a prominent part. Some twelve years ago Colonel Nichols left Rutland for Maywood, where he built up a large and profitable business in the manufacture of farming implements. He was highly esteemed by all who knew him, and many will regret to hear of his sudden death.
