  • Notes 
    • T.J.C.Williams & F.McKinsey, HISTORY OF FREDERICK COUNTY, p. 765 (1910), state:
      "Lewis M. Nixdorff...was born and reared in Frederick, and there received his education. While a young man, he began to clerk in his father's store. He afterwards became a merchant, in which he was engaged for many years.... He later entered the Farmers' and Mechanics Bank as a bookkeeper, which position he retained for six years. Some time afterward, he bought a half interest in a tannery, which enterprise was conducted under the firm name of Nixdorff & Brookey. This firm continued in business until 1903.... Mr. Nixdorff was a director of the Catoctin Mountain Road Company since its organization; a director in the Farmers' and Mechanics National Bank, and also of the Mount Olivet Cemetery. He was one of the trustees of the Women's College of Frederick, and of the Loats Female Orphan Asylum, also of Frederick.
      "Politically, Mr. Nixdorff was an adherent of the Democratic party, and served as City register [sic], tax collector and alderman of Frederick.***"
