Nichols, Warren

Nichols, Warren a Presbyterian minister, was born at Reading, Mass., Jan. 26,1803. He was the child of pious parents, and in his eighteenth year was converted, and from that time devoted himself to preparing for the work of the ministry. In 1828 he graduated at Williams College, Mass., and in 1832 at Andover Theological Seminary. After preaching one year in New England, he left in 1833 for the Mississippi valley, under the patronage of the New Hampshire Missionary Society, and labored for a short time at St. Charles, Mo. In 1834 he removed to Illinois, where he was actively engaged five years, a part of the time in connection with Dr. Nelson, in his institute for training young men for the ministry. In 1839 he went to Ohio, where he labored as a missionary for six years. At length failing health compelled him to retire from the ministry, and in 1855 he removed to Lima, Ohio. During his last years he labored as agent for the American Bible Society. He died June 7, 1862. Mr. Nichols was a man of much energy, of large views, a good citizen, and a faithful minister.
