Dr. Asa B. Nickell of Ezel the oldest physician in the county, and the first in
Morgan to be granted a diploma, died at his home October 31st, and was buried the
following day, the Masons and Odd Fellows conducting the burial.
Dr. Nickell was seventy-five years of age at his death. He was one of the leading
citizens of Morgan county, was a member of the Christian church, a Mason and Odd Fellow,
a kind husband, a loving father and a good citizen. We extend our sympathy to his
bereaved family and join in the universal regret at his death.
