John Hickman: Birth: 1786 in County Derry, Ireland. Death: BET 9 SEP AND 9 OCT 1856 in Dorchester Cemetery, Westmorland Co., Dorchester Parish, NB
Note: From Alllen I. Jack's Biographical review pages 181-182: "John Hickman, Sr. ... was born and brought up in Holland, and while yet a lad received a military training. Emigrating from there to Ireland in early mature life, he settled in Derry, from which place he and five of his brothers enlisted in the British army. His brothers were all killed at the famous battle of Waterloo, after which he returned to his home in Derry, where he devoted himself to the care of his aged parents, and spent the remainder of his life." From the web site of The Irish Canadian Cultural Association of New Brunswick: "Allen Jack�s Biographical Review, pages 181-182 states that John Hickman Sr. was born in Holland and came to County Derry, Ireland. He and five brothers enlisted in the British Army. All of his brothers were killed at Waterloo. John Sr. settled in Derry to care for his aged parents. "
JSH notes: The Battle of Waterloo, fought on June 18, 1815 was Napoleon Bonaparte's last battle. The Hickmans were probably part of the Anglo-Allied Army under Wellington which consisted of 106,000 men from British, Dutch/Belgian, and minor German states - There were 15,000 casualties from this force - of which we are to assume include the 5 Hickman brothers to John from Js Howell family tree
