Edick. March 4, 1886, the friends and relatives of Mr. and Mrs. Nicholson, to the number of about seventy, assembled at their residence in South Richmond, to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their marriage. There were present friends from Syracuse, Oswego, Watertown, and from different towns in Oswego county. The following were some of the presents to the bride and groom of twenty-five years: Mr. and Mrs. B. Berry, glass lemonade set and silver server, Mr. and Mrs. R. B. Edick, butter dish and knife; Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Edick, silver pickle dish and sugar spoon; F. and C. Nicholson, antique tea-pot; Mr. and Mrs. G. N. Edick, silver cake basket; Miss M. E. Ladd, spoon holder, Mr. and Mrs. T. E. Perry, Mr. and Mrs. G. N. Perry and Mr. and Mrs. L. J. Rich, silver cake basket; Mr. and Mrs. C. A Norris, fruit dish and plates; Mr. and Mrs. Goodsell, pair vases; Mr. and Mrs. E. C. Waters, $3.50 in silver; Mr. and Mrs. E. Nicholson, $1 in silver; Mr. and Mrs. M.

Miller, set nut picks and painting; Mr. and Mrs. M L. Dunbar, bronze busts; Miss Mary Hess, panel painting; Mr. and Mrs. B. E. Parkhurst, patent rocker and Chinese lady. The following is a copy of a letter by an aged maiden lady friend with a request that it be read to the company. The letter was folded in the old-fashioned way and sealed with a wafer without an envelope and directed to "Mr. and Mrs. Lorenzo Nicholson, present," and read as follows: "South Richland. Mr. and Mrs. Nicholson: as I have known Mr. Nicholson since a child, I venture to speak to him of the great mistake I think he has made in not giving me an invitation to his place this evening, and looked up some smart gentleman with an ox sled and straw and blankets, as we went when I was young. I guess with a careful man I might have come. I suppose you thought I was poor, but I might have given one silver dollar, the man another. See what you have lost! And I may have got so young that with you or consent there might have been a new wedding at your house this evening. Sony to trouble you just now, but here are three cents to pay you the trouble of reading this. Please be careful how you speak about this for I fear I shall get laughed at" After, the inner man had been fully satisfied from the tables. The marriage ceremony was duly performed by I. J. Rich, Esq., who, after congratulating the youthful couple upon their happiness thus far, and warning them of the dangers that might befall them as a newly married couple, and after admonishing all present that if any had ought to say why those two should not be joined in the bonds of padlock to speak out or forever after hold their yawp, no reply being made in the usual questions being duly answered, the young couple of twenty-five years of married life were sent on their way, rejoicing. At a late hour the company broke up, all feeling that they had enjoyed a good time.

    • Lorenzo Nicholson - January 7, 1834 - August 24, 1899. Son of Joseph and Dimis Loomis Nicholson. Husband of Esther Jane Edick.

      Newspaper Obituary - Wednesday, August 30, 1899 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - South Richland - Died, at his home, August 24, Lorenzo Nicholson, after a long and painful illness, which he bore with a marked degree of submission. Mr. Nicholson was born in Richfield and was one of a family of eight children, six of whom still survive. When a small boy he came with his parents to this town, where he has since resided. In his youth he married Miss Esther Edick, daughter of the late William Edick. His health has been failing steadily of late, and life seemed a burden to him, although everything was done for his comfort that the hands of his devoted wife and children could do, but they could not hold back the dread messenger of death and as he quietly heard the summons, without a struggle visible to those who were watching, he yielded up his life to Him who gave it. He is survived by a wife and three children, Mrs. Charles Palmer, of Cleveland and Will and Walter Nicholson of this place. Two brothers and four sisters also survive him as follows: Joseph Nicholson, of Washington state, Henry Nicholson, of Scriba, Mrs. Maria Waters, Mrs. M. Hess, Mrs. William Conant, of Mexico, and Mrs. married Joslyn, who resides at his late home. Funeral services at the house, August 26, Rev. D. G. Cluistman officiating. Interment at Willis cemetery.

      Newspaper Obituary - Thursday Evening, August 31, 1899 The Oswego Daily Palladium - Oswego, New York - South Richland, August 30 - On the 24th occurred the death of one of our neighbors, Mr. Lorenzo Nicholson, after a long illness. The family consisting of a devoted wife and daughter, Mrs. Charles Palmer, Cleveland, New York, and two sons, William and Walter Nicholson, of this place, have been bereft of a kind and indulgent father, and the neighborhood a good friend, kind and ever obliging. He will be missed, but most by his immediate family because he has been shut in from mingling with those outside of his own home for nearly two years. He had two brothers, one in the far away State of Washington and one in Scriba; four sisters, Mrs. Maria Waters, Mrs. Martin Hess and Mrs. William Conant, all of Mexico, and Mrs. Mary Joslyn, who lives in his late home. That he was respected was manifested by the large crowd of people who gathered to pay their last tribute to their friend and neighbor. The funeral services were held from his late home on the 26th, the Rev. D. G. Christman officiating. The bearers were M. Barnard, L. M. Brown, C. H. Hicks and A. Rockfellow. Burial in Willis cemetery.
