OBITUARY - A. H. HICKERSON.
Abraham Hamilton HICKERSON, son of M. D. J. and Julia Ann HICKERSON, was born January 15, 1853, in Gallia county, Ohio, where he
grew to manhood, and passed away at the home of his daughter, Mrs. H. W. TERRELL, in west Mount Ayr May 27, 1931, being at the time of his
death seventy-eight years, four months and twelve days old.
On the fifth day of February, 1871, he was united in marriage to
Calphurnia (sic) HARTSOOK. To this union were born four children, Mrs. D. W. THOMPSON of Hatfield, Mo., John L., deceased in 1926, Mrs.
Curtis HALEY of Sumpter, Oregon, and Mrs. H. W. TERRELL of Mount Ayr.
In the year 1875 they came west and settled on a farm in
Worth county, Missouri, thence to their home in Harrison county, Missouri, at which place they resided for many years. They moved
to Mount Ayr in 1907 where they have since made their home.
Mr. HICKERSON had been failing in health for the past several
years. He was a kind and loving husband and father, honest and upright in all his dealing, and was never happier than when in
the presence of his family and friends. His cheery voice and loving smile will be a lasting memory.
He is survived by his wife,
three daughters, thirteen grandchildren, seventeen great grandchildren and a host of relatives and friends.
Funeral services were
held at the Methodist church in Mount Ayr May 29th, conducted by Rev. E. S. MENOHER. Burial was in Rose Hill cemetery.

We wish to express our heartfelt thanks to those who in any way assisted during
