BIOGRAPHICAL (From Centennial History of Oregon):
"AARON W. NUSOM. Through improvement of the opportunities which Oregon offers in agricultural lines Aaron W. Nusom has become one of the substantial citizens of Marion county. He is now residing upon his farm six miles southwest of Gervais on the Fairfield and Salem road. His birth occurred in New York in 1859, and when he was but one year of age his father enlisted in the Federal army and served until the close of the war four years later. The father was a native of Ireland but came to the United States at the early age of thirteen years. For several years he was employed in various positions, until he had finally saved enough money to purchase property in New York state. He was married in that state to Tirza Jones, but shortly after their marriage they removed to Kansas and lived there for twenty years before coming west to Brooks. Here they resided until their deaths, the father’s occurring in 1907 and the mother’s in 1899. To them seven children were born: Mary and William, deceased; Aaron W., the subject of this sketch; Lucy, deceased; Sarah, who is the wife of John Ridinger who is living near Gervais, Oregon; Lola, who is the wife of William Hoover, of Tillamook, Oregon; and Robert, a resident of Brooks, Oregon.
In 1885 Mr. Nusom was married to Ms. Etta Brown, whose birth occurred in 1870 and who is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Brown, the father a native of Indiana and the mother of Pennsylvania, of German descent. To Mr. and Mrs. Brown five children were born; Mrs. Nusom; Daisy, who is the wife of Edward Williams, of Carthage, Illinois; Helen, of Bowen, Illlinois; George, who is living in Brooks, Oregon; and Cora, who is the wife of Marcus Dunn, of Albany, Oregon. To Mr. and Mrs. Nusom seven children have been born: Grace, who died at the age of six years; Ella, whose death occurred when she was but four years of age; Alberta, who was born in 1891 and who has been given the full advantages of a public school education; Walter, who was born in 1894, and who is attending school; Lola, whose birth occurred in 1896 and who is a student in the Albany high school and has also received a musical education; and Frances and Allyn, whose births occurred in 1899 and 1902 respectively, and who are attending school."
