EDWARD HICKMAN, dry-goods merchant of Stockton, was born in Lewis, Delaware, July 24, 1830, a son of George and Mary (Marriner) Hickman, both now deceased. The father was a merchant in Lewis, as far back as 1812, died in 1853, aged seventyfive; the mother survived him about thirty years and was over eighty at her death. One son, Hardeston, died in Lewis, December 31, 1889, at the age of seventy-three; another son, William M., living in San Francisco in 1890, is sixty-five. Eight sons and three daughters lived to raise families and all but three sons are living in 1890, the youngest being fifty-two.
The subject of this sketch left school at the age of seventeen, having received an academic education, entered a dry-goods store in Philadelphia as clerk, remaining three years, and has been in that line of business ever since. He came to California by way of Panama, arriving in San Francisco March, 1850, whence he came to this city, entering the dry-goods and clothing store of his brother, Hardeston, who had settled here in 1849. He worked for the brother at the present location, 206 Main street, until 1854, when he bought the stock, the brother returning East, and in 1861 bought the building also. He has carried on business " at the old stand " for thirty-six years.
Mr. Hickman was married in this city, July 24, 1856, to Miss Hepsabeth B. Fisher, born in Nantucket, Massachusetts, a daughter of Samuel and Hepsabeth (Brown) Fisher, both natives of Massachusetts. Mr. and Mrs. Hickman have four living children: Albertine; Althea, married December, 1889, to F. E. Dunlap, an attorney of this city; Edward Samuel, now in business with his father as clerk; Willard Salisbury, deputy city assessor of Stockton, married December, 1889, to Miss Emma Smith, born Canada, a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas J. Smith.
Mr. Edward Hickman has been a Mason since 1854, belonging also to the Royal Arch Chapter, and the Knights Templar. He is a member of the Improved Order of Red Men, and of the Knights of Honor, and of the San Joaquin Valley Agricultural Association.
