Prior & Son of Trenton, one of these being the building of St. James’s church of Red Bank. He was a skilled mechanic and a steady workman.
Mr. Nissen married Miss Eva Johnson, daughter of Anthony Johnson of Red Bank. She and one son, aged eight years, survive him. The funeral was held on Saturday at two o’clock at the house and was conducted by Rev. E. C. Hancock. The body was buried at West Long Branch. The pall bearers were Albert and Theodore Scott, Joseph Boskey and George Krugs.
