Bishop William Haney Hickenlooper (1804)

Hickenlooper, of the Sixth Ward, breathed his last at his home in this city, at the advanced age of 83 years, 3 months and 23 days.

At the time of his death he was the oldest Bishop in the Church, and for over forty years he had held the position now made vacant. His long term of service, genial and mild disposition, kindness of heart, and the uprightness of his life, have won for him the love and veneration of those over whom he has exercised a father’s care, and his absence will be keenly felt by the entire ward , and by hundreds of others outside of his family and relatives.
