On Tuesday, the 28th of Dec. 1858, of Lung Fever, WILLIAM HICKMAN OF Green township, aged 67 years 7 months and 18 days.
Father Hickman was one of the earliest settlers in this township, and was much respected by a numerous circle of acquaintances for his uprightness and kindness of manner. He was one that endured great hardships at the commencement of his career but was one of those who never let his hopes prevent him from persevering, and he lived to see his numerous family comfortably settled, and himself leaving the world without indebtedness. Some years ago before the introduction of water or steam mills to this section of the country, he erected a horse mill, and many can testify to his kindness in assisting the poor man, not merely refusing to take toll, but frequently taking his team from the plough to grind the grist.
May his example be an inducement to others to act in a similar manner.
