Alma Hickman - Pianist

Hickman -> Howell

I learned today that Alma M. Hickman was one of the first to graduate from the Mount Allison Ladies' College, Sackville, New Brunswick, Canada, in 1874 with a certificate in music - piano - she was 19. No doubt she was playing Beethoven's piano sonatas composed a mere 55 years before she was born. And we already know, Alma's daughter and only child, Ellen "Nellie" Davison married her piano teacher - Henry Howell.
