    Notes 
    • From Ontario County Journal 10 April 1874

      Obituary - Died at the residence of her son, Benjamin F. Hicks, in Bristol, on the morning of the 2nd , inst. Mrs. Hannah Cornell, wife of the late Aaron Hicks, Esq., aged 79 years, 2 months and 28 days. Mrs. Hicks was a native of Dighton, Bristol Co., Mass., and came to the Genesee Country with her parents at an early age. She was married to Mr. Hicks January 1st, 1812, and lived with him in the same neighborhood, and most of the time on the same farm, for more than sixty years. She was the mother of ten children, nine of whom, one daughter and eight sons lived to adult age, and seven of the sons are still living and were present at her funeral. She was a woman of strong mind and her influence was on the side of right. In the days of the anti-slavery struggle she sympathized deeply with the friends of that cause, and when the ranks of the advocates of Temperance were thin indeed, her voice was ever raised in favor of total abstinence from everything that can intoxicate, and the poor and oppressed always found in her a sympathizer, and so far as her means would allow, a helper. Her funeral was attended at the Universalist Church on Sunday, the 5th inst., the services being conducted by the Pastor, Rev. Henry Jewell, assisted by Rev. Henry Shepard, of Orono, Maine.
