The Hickman Sea Sled

Hickman -> Davison -> Howell

In the 1800's our Hickman's are living in New Brunswick, Canada - they include ship builders and lawyers.

Allison CHURCH Bird wrote to sayWilliam Albert Hickman (nephew of our Alma Hickman) invented the Hickman Sea Sled -- Scientific American Sept. 26, 1914 says: "A new type of vessel, which promises to revolutionize water craft and which takes the same place on the water that the automobile does on land."
