    Biography

    Louis McLean Hickman arrived in Stockton in the 1850s and in about 1860 married Mary Dallas. Mr. Hickman acquired extensive land holdings especially in Stanislaus County. In 1909 Louis M. and Mary Hickman formed Louis M. Hickman, a limited term corporation for agriculture and land development sales. Mr. Hickman died in 1910. Mary Hickman was a corporation director as late as 1928, and she died about 1930. The corporation charter was suspended in 1937 for failure to pay the corporation tax.
