NICHOLSON, John Griffith - At Hyde Park, Cook county, May 7, of winter cholera, John Griffith Nicholson, 71 years, 10 months, 10 days, father of Mr. George Nicholson of this city.
Father Nicholson, who has been living here with his son George for the past two years, and in the best of health for one of his advanced age, while on a visit to a daughter, Mrs. John Storms at Hyde Park, was suddenly taken ill on the morning of the 7th, with Chicago cholera, and in less than 20 hours from the time he was attacked, was a corpse. The attack is supposed to have been induced by drinking Chicago lake water, which has been a prolific cause of illness this spring at the metropolis. Mr. Nicholson was made sensible that he would not recover early in the attack, and desiring to see his son, the latter was telegraphed for here in the morning, but receiving the dispatch after the train had gone up, Mr. G. Nicholson drove to Bureau Junction, a distance of 15 miles in hopes to catch the late train east on the main line, but being 15 minutes late when he reached there, he drove back, and took the night train, but arrived too late to see his father alive.
The deceased was a native of Newry, Ireland. At the age of 21 he married, when he emigrated to Canada. Since 1837 he has lived in Illinois, most of the time in Will county. He buried his wife at Lockport. He was for many years connected with the Illinois & Michigan canal, and for 18 years was lock tender, being the oldest and longest employed in that position of any person employed in that capacity. For the past few years he has been living with his children. Six of the 10 born to him survive, five of whom were able to be a his funeral, which was held on the 9th at Hyde Park. The body was taken to Lockport, where with the honored wife, the two lay in sweet repose side by side, in one lot. Mr. N. led a useful life, and was active and nimble up to the day of his death, as he was 20 years ago. [The Henry Republican, Marshall County, IL May 19, 1881 - Submitted by Source #25]

O'HARA, Mary E. -- 91, a retired elementary school teacher, taught third grade almost 50 years. She was a teacher for most of those years at the Eli Whitney Elementary School, 2815 S. Komensky Ave.
Mass for Miss O'Hara, a resident of South Austin, will be said at 10:30 a.m. Friday in St. Frances of Rome Catholic Church, 1428 S. 59th Ct., Cicero. She died Tuesday in a Joliet nursing home.
''She loved the children and had control of the classroom,'' her niece, Norine Bubalo, said. ''It was a different era. It was a time when teachers were invited to the homes and really knew the kids. When she walked into the classroom, the kids turned quiet. I think the children loved her as she did them. The other teachers would call on her if they were having trouble controlling the kids.''
Mrs. Bubalo called her aunt ''a dedicated teacher who never missed a day of school. She went when she was sick.''
Miss O'Hara was graduated from Normal College and later took classes in psychology at Loyola University. She started teaching in 1916. Along with other Chicago schoolteachers in the early 1930s, she was paid in scrip. Her father (who worked for the city) and her sister (who was also a teacher) suffered the same fate. ''She was a very firm lady,'' a nephew, Thomas Conway, said. ''She was a strict member of the school of learning that said to students, 'You're here to learn--with a will if you can; by rote, if you must--but you will learn. You are not offered an alternative.' ''
She continued to teach until 1974, when she was 70. After her retirement, she was active in the Freedom Club, a group of former teachers. Survivors include a sister, Marguerite Aldrich [Chicago Tribune (IL) - October 18, 1985 - Submitted by a Friend of Free Genealogy]
