Stickney Family by Matthew Adams Stickney, A Genealogical Memoir of the Descendants of William and Elizabeth Stickney from 1637 to 1869.

He graduated at Dartmouth College in 1824, and after reading law in the office of Hon. Stephen W. Marston of Newburyport, was admitted to the Essex Bar, and settled in his native town. Here he resided for some years, and secured a large professional business, a portion of the time being a partner of Hon. Caleb Cushing. He was for some years editor of the "Newburyport Herald," and was several times elected a Representative to the General Court. In 1837, attracted by the opening for New England men at the West, he gave up his position and encouraging prospects and went to Missouri, and soon after became editor of the "St. Louis Gazette," having in the meantime practiced law in St. Charles County. Subsequently was editor of a paper at Jefferson City, but a few years later he returned to St. Louis, and resided there, or in the vicinity, until his death. He was for twelve years an editor of the "St. Louis Republican," and during his residence at St. Louis had represented that city in the Legislature, and had held the office of County Judge. By appointment from President Filmore, he was for a time Registrar of the Land Office at St. Louis, and subsequently Secretary of the Territory of New Mexico. In all of these many positions he enjoyed the esteem and confidence of the public in a high degree."
