Surnames: Couch, Hickstein
Adolph Hickstein was born in October 1877 in Hannover, Germany. He came to the U.S. to see the Chicago World's Fair, and from there went with other young men to Cuba to start business ventures. Adolph was a partner in a department store in Oriente Province. He met Gertrude Couch through an introduction by Maude Benson of Kingston, Ontario, Gertrude's friend, who met Adolph when she and her husband, an Anglican missionary, were posted in an English-speaking group in Cuba. Adolph and Gertrude corresponded, and decided to meet. She was 35 years old, he 36, and they decided after a brief courtship to marry. He returned to Cuba and set up their household. She took a steamboat to Havana, where the couple were married. They had three children; the first, a son, died at birth. Frederick Hickstein was born in 1913, and Marie Hickstein was born in 1916. Frederick had two children, neither of whom has offspring; Marie had three children and one grandson, who now lives in Montreal.
