I believe that Abraham NORDYKE and his wife Henrietta P. ANTHONY were the parents of Morgan, Justina (Toomey), Lizzie (True), Americus, and perhaps others.The following is an obituary for Morgan NORDYKE which mentions his wives, children and surviving siblings as follows:
The Mountain DemocratPlacerville, CA11 October 1913p.4The Passing of a Pioneer Mrs. E. Killough and daughter Miss Retta, were called to Sacramento last week, to attend the funeral of M.E. Nordyke, a brother-in-law of the former.Morgan Elmer Nordyke, was a former resident of El Dorado county, crossing the plains to California in 1850, and engaging in mining here and in Placer county, later taking up farming.He afterwards moved to Sacramento Valley, where he married Miss Susie Wood, and to them was born one son.His wife died in 1874.In 1877 he married Mrs. Eliza J. Dobson (formerly Miss Poteet, of El Dorado county) and to them were born two sons and two daughters.Their home was in San Juan, San Benito county.Mr. Nordyke was a native of Ohio, 77 years of age, and his death was the result of pluro pneumonia.All that medical skill and loving care could do was of no avail and he passed to rest on Sept. 29th, surrounded by his family.Besides his widow and the son named, he is survived by E. E. and E. L. Nordyke, Mrs. L. A. Sutter of Seattle, and Mr. & Mrs. M. B. Stewart of San Juan, children by his later marriage, and five grand children.Two sisters, Mrs. Lizzie True of Santa Barbara, Mrs. Justina Toomey, of Sacramento, and a brother, Americus of Chico, also live to mourn the loss of a loving relative.Mr. Nordyke was a devoted husband and father, and a large circle of friends will mourn his taking off.He was a member of the Christian Church and was laid to rest in Sacramento the 2nd day of October, its being his wish to be interred in the family lot at the old home.
