    Notes 
    Married:
    • Paul Foss notes:

      "In a needless-to-say extraordinary occurrence, Albert divorced Esther and Dorothy divorced Benjamin thereby enabling Albert and Dorothy to be wed."

      Helen M. Petchey in "The Hickmans in Dorchester's Heyday!" p.11 notes:

      "W. Albert Hickman was twice married, first to Esther Foss, a daughter of Eugene Foss, a three-term govenor of Massachussets; and second to Dorothy Chapman Foss of California."

      JSH notes:

      The tree appearing in the appendix of The Hickman's in Dorchester's Heyday incorrectly shows Foss spelled Goss.  The correct spelling is Foss.  [9, 10]
