From The Blaine Journal of 28 Jul 1911:
James L. Hickox passed away at his home on Harrison avenue after an illness of
two weeks, starting with indigestion and resulting in heart failure. The funeral
services were held from Potter's undertaking parlors Wednesday afternoon,
conducted by the G. A. R. post, assisted by Rev. R. I Case of the Baptist
church. The deceased was born in the state of New York in 1836 and was 74 years
and 7 months old at death. At the breaking out of the Civil war he was a
resident of Denver, Colo., and enlisted in the first Colorado regiment, serving
during that struggle. He came to Bellingham in 1895 and to Blaine in 1901 where
he has since resided. He was a man of strict integrity and had charge of the
shoe repairing department in A. B. Barrett's shoe store, and later in the Red
Front clothing store where he diligently plied his trade until taken sick. Mrs.
O. S. Stevens of Spokane, a daughter, was present at the funeral. Two daughters
are also residing in Denver.
