Nelson G. Dubois, a pioneer of Warrick County, Ind., was born March
16, 1821, in Ohio County, Ky., being the only child of Stephen and
Rebecca Dubois, who were natives respectively of South Carolina and
Virginia. When our subject was yet an infant his father died, and twelve
years later his mother removed to Warrick County, In., with him and
settled on Congress land, two miles south of Boonville, but shortly
thereafter went to Pose County, this State, where they unfortunately
lost almost all their worldly possessions, by reason of sickness.
Returning to their old farm in Warrick County , they continued residing
there until the death of Mrs. Dubois, in 1866. In 1884, Nelson G.
returned to Chandler , which has since been his home. He received a
limited education in the primitive log-cabin of his boyhood days; was
raised to manhood on a farm, and farming has always been his occupation.
April 13, 1843 ,he wedded Minerva J. Montgomery, who died June 14, 1866
, after bearing ten children, the following named yet living: Angeline,
Jasper N., Susan M., Eli L., Josephine, Amanda J., George M., and
Minerva. August 19, 1866, Mr. Dubois married Sarah Baker, and he was
again left a widower November 30, 1882. May 18, 1884 , Isabel Farley
became his third, and is his present wife, and both belong to the
Baptist Church . In politics Mr. Dubois is a stanch Democrat, and has
