Hickman Family of Harbor Springs, Michigan, 9 photographs

Written in pencil on the backs, all but 1 has the same handwriting.

A treasure trove for the Hickman family of Harbor Springs Mich. These nine photos I found in the same box in an antique store in Michigan. Every picture has written in pencil name, location and some have dates. Here are the names on the backs.

Henry Hickman born Apr. 12th 1898

Several are faded in color, some are dirty, some have warn corners and 1 has tiny holes. Sizes are variable generally in the 5 x 7 range.

Hi! I am trying to figure out who these Hickmans are that you have posted pictures of. The only Hickmans I've ever known in Petoskey and Harbor Springs have been my relatives. Who are these people and where did they come from?

Hello nman, Maybe to help you better I added scanned copies of the backs. All but 1 photo has the same penciled handwriting. It's hard to see the scanned writing so I typed next to each picture whats written on the back. I believe I found them in an antique store near Bay City Michigan.
If you have any other questions please ask.

Hello Garry,

I am unsure about helping you find your friend. The Hickmans in my post are from Harbor Springs and I have yet to find their family. Hopefully the more times the Hickman name is mentioned in this post the better. Perhaps search engines will help Hickman folks find these photos and see your request. If any Hickmans contact me I will mention your inquiry. I hope you find your friend.
