Squint Shot 081111

Andrew J. Wickman, b. Apr. 14, 1845, d. Jan 29, 1916, and
Harriett L. Wickman, b. July 24, 1848, d. Oct. 14, 1935.

At this point, I don't have an obituary for Mr. Wickman, but I do have the following articles eight years before his death published in The Fowlerville Review in 1908:

Fred Richter has purchased the interest of A.J. Wickman in the firm of A.J. Wickman & Son, and the business will be continued at the same location under the firm name of Wickman & Richter. The new firm has a very large acquaintance, having been born and reared in this vicinity, and will make a strong team among the business men of this village, whose success is already assured.

A couple weeks later,

Notice~~Notice is hereby given that the firm heretofore known as A.J. Wickman & Son is mutually dissolved and all accounts owing to said firm will be paid to A.J. Wickman. Signed, A.J. Wickman and P.B. Wickman

A bit more information,

Mrs. A.J. Wickman and Mrs. Henry Curtis are members of the W.R.C. and each lady made their appearance in this world on the 25th day of July, 1848 (but please note above crypt information showing the 24th), and the W.R.C. decided to celebrate the event by holding a W.R.C. social at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Curtis and also to extend an invitation to the friends and neighbors to join in the festivities, which nearly all accepted and a large crowd enjoyed the occasion very much. A fine supper was served and the table was decorated by a large cake properly frosted and decorated.

In 1915,

Mr. and Mrs. A.J. Wickman celebrated their 48th wedding anniversary Sunday by entertaining their three sons, Perry of this place, Roy of Webberville, and Gale of Detroit, with their families. It is almost useless to add that the day was a very enjoyable one for all and Mr. and Mrs. Wickman have a large circle of friends who will be glad to see them live to enjoy many more such pleasant anniversaries.
