|Provenance||Donors grandfather was E.T. Settle, and father J.O. Hickox; operated one of the 2 traders stores in Darlintgon Agency from 1887-1901. After their death their home was in El Reno until 1910 when the family moved to California. From the early Darlingtron days, he and his brother have Cheyenne-Arapaho items which, were brought by the Indians to Darlington from the northern homes of these tribes. His grandfather moved to Darlington from St. Louis in 1887; at the time his brother-in-law, Major Albert Woodson, was the commandant at Ft. Reno. Through that connection, his grandfather obtained a licensed tradership at Darlington Agency, and soon joined in the enterprise with his father, J.O. Hickox, who had been in the Agency for some time as a govt. clerk. During the interval between 1887-1901, both died, and the material was collected from their estates. Donor's mother said the walls of one room were decorated with numerous specimens of Indian crafts.|
