Mrs. Alvin Ball Dies Thursday Evening
Mrs. Emma Jane Ball Nicholson, resident of 2019 Van Buren street where she had lived since 1912, died at her late home Thursday evening. She had been ill some time.
Mrs. Ball was the daughtger of Mr. and Mrs. John Nicholson and was born in Sarpy county, Nebraska, February 18, 1868. She attended schools there and on December 28, 1890, was married in Springfield, Nebraska, to Alvin Ball.
Mr. and Mrs. Ball came to Oregon in 1910 and spent two years at Woodburn before coming to Corvallis. Mr. Ball died in 1941. Mrs. Ball was a member of the Christian church, the College Hill branch of the W.C.T.U. and Alpha Rebekah lodge.
Surviving are one son, Roy Mason Ball of Great Falls, Montana, and two brothers, Thomas NIcholson of Springfield, Nebraska, and George Nicholson, Papillion, Nebraska.
The remains are in the Keeney Funeral Home where plans are being made for the final rites.
Comment: I believe that reference in Alvin's obit to them arriving in Oregon in 1920 is a typo; other info says 1910.
