Biographical Sketch of Julia Hickey

John & Julia Hickey emigrated to the United States from Ireland. John came in 1802. Julia was born in Ireland in 1814 and then the time of famine was in her country. Her parents sent her and her brother away from home “to try to make their way to America” because there was no food at home for them. Her mother’s last words as she shut the door were “never look back.” She and her brother started walking to the sea. Julia boarded a ship as a “stowaway” and reached the United States. She never saw or heard from her brother again. At that time it was common to “send only the boys to school,” so Julia never had the opportunity in Ireland to read or write. John and Julia had farmed in New York and had 4 children: Eliza, John, William H., and Jennie. About 1858 the family moved to Wisconsin and then to Iowa later. The son John was born about 1842 and farmed. He and his wife Celia had 5 children in Iowa and 5 more were born after they moved to the mountains of Western Montana, near Victor. John discovered a vein of gold and sold stock in the mine to some of his Iowa relatives. It never paid off to the investors. The daughter Jennie became a teacher and purchased 80 acres of land...
