Elisa (Elizabeth) Edes (Brown) Hickling (Wife) (1825-1916). There is a burial plot in Boston with Elizabeth Hickling but there is no date of death. She married Charles Hickling in 1841 and their son was born in 1845. There is also a suggestion in this writing that she also had another child and lost that child.
Charles Hickling (Husband) (1799-1888). He was the son of William Hickling and Sarah (Bradford) Hickling. He was put in charge of his fathers' estate in 1825 because his father was declared non-compos mentis in 1807. William Hickling died in 1825. Charles went on to be a successful merchant in Boston.
Charles Edward Hickling (Son) (1841-1867); Sergeant 45th Mass. Volunteers (Infantry), September, 1862. Discharged for disability contracted in the service (severe Malaria), February 9, 1863. He died of same disease, on December 17, 1867. He graduated Harvard in 1862 after attending the private school of Mr. Thomas G. Bradford.
