A Landmark Removed. Death is always sad, whether it comes in youth, the prime of manhood or in old age. In youth, the innocence and buds of earth are taken out of the lives of those who haven loved and cherished them; in manhood the maturing fruit and the sinew of support are swept away and their stations in their day remain unfilled; in old age, it is the decay of the matured fruit, and the removal of ancient landmarks. Our hearts are saddened and we feel the sympathizing influences of friends, when bereaved by the hand of death. Such is now true of the host of relatives and friends of the late Peter Hickman, who died at his home in Warren Township one week ago last Thursday, Nov. 12th, 1891. Mr. Hickman was among the oldest residents of the county, being 83 years, eight months and twenty eight days old at the time of his death and a pioneer of the county. He was the father of eleven children, nine of which, Mrs. N. L. Little, Mrs. Elizabeth Russell, Mrs. Martha Smalley, Mrs. Sarah Smalley, Peter, John, James, Albert and William, still survive him. Peter Hickman was a pioneer Methodist, being a memeber of that church for seventy-two years and dying in that faith. The funeral services, conducted by Elder L. C. Buckles and Rev. J. C. Kemp, were held at Bethel Church in Warren Township, Sunday, Nov. 15th, and the remains were laid to rest at Bethel Cemetery in the tomb which had been constructed after his own plans, for over twenty one years.
