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 served as Trustee of Boon Township four years, Real Estate Appraiser five years, County Commissioner three years, and has also served a Drainage Commissioner by appointment from the Circuit Court Judge. Mr. Dubois is one of the county's best citizens.
