GEORGE WASHINGTON HICKMAN,
son of Ladson F. Hickman and Rebecca J. Ross.
George W. Hickman was the first Postmaster of Pocola, Choctaw Nation, Indian Territory, in 1881.
Note: The following information taken from the Fort Smith "Elevator" newspaper dated Fri, Oct 31, 1884.
"Geo. W. Hickman, died at his home, Pocola, Choctaw Nation, on Tue. night last, Oct. 28, 1884, of Typhoid malarial fever, aged about 25 years. He has been merchandising at Pocola for the past five years, and was a highly respected young man. He was buried yesterday, the Masonic fraternity of which he was a member in good standing, conducting the funeral."
Folsom Cemetery is an abandoned and much neglected burial ground located a few hundred feet east of U.S. Hwy. 112 in Pocola, Ok. on land owned by the Didier family. In the 1980's vandals had dug into most of the grave sites. Like most abandoned cemeteries on private property, it will soon fade away and only memories will remain with family members that have visited this old burying ground.
George W. Hickman's father, brother, sister-in-law, aunt, niece and nephew rest in this cemetery.
These are our ancestors and they should be remembered.
George W. Hickman was the great-uncle of FAG contributor Milton A. Stephens. He was an older brother of my grandmother, Beulah Ross Hickman Stephens.
Milton A. Stephens, great-grandson of Ladson F. Hickman.
