Biography of Bickham, Strickle families

William Denison Bickham William Denison Bickham was born March 30, 1827, in Riverside (near Cincinnati), Ohio, the eldest of seven children born to William Ard Bickham (ca. 1798-1845) and Eliza Dennison (1802-1893). William D. Bickham attended both public and private schools in Cincinnati, as well as Cincinnati College and Bethany College (in present-day Bethany, West Virginia). However, William's formal education ended abruptly in 1845 when his father died and he had to return home as head and financial supporter of the family. At that time, William started a two-year apprenticeship with the Cincinnati Gazette, where he learned typesetting, and thus began his career in journalism. Afterwards, he worked as an editor at the Louisville Courier, but his family's finances forced him to return to Cincinnati in 1848. In the fall of 1848, William took a flatboat journey from Cincinnati to New Orleans and back with his brother John. In 1849, William worked as a clerk at a mercantile business. Then, in March 1850, William set out for the California gold rush. He spent more than a year in the mines near Grass Valley in Nevada County, California; then, in 1852, he represented El Dorado County, California, at the state's first Whig convention. Eventually, he settled in San Francisco, where he was a customs officer; one of the founders of San Francisco's first public library and its first librarian; and was, at different times, an editor of several San Francisco newspapers: Picayune, Evening Journal, Evening Times, and Morning Ledger. Meanwhile, he also still wrote home to the Cincinnati Gazette, describing life in California.1 William did not strike it rich in the gold rush, and he returned home to Cincinnati in April 1854. For a time, he worked on the Cincinnati, Hamilton, & Dayton Railroad as a brakeman and later a baggage master. Before long, he was involved in journalism again. He was a correspondent for the Cincinnati Daily Columbian and later the Cincinnati Evening Times. On December 27, 1855, William D. Bickham married Maria Emily Strickle (b. Dec. 1833) at the home of her parents, Abraham Ellis Strickle (1807-1863) and Caroline Goodwin (d. 1867), of Wilmington, Ohio. Maria's father Abraham was the director of the Clinton County Fair, and William had most likely met the family while covering county fairs for the Cincinnati newspapers, which was one of his usual assignments. By 1856, William had become city editor of the Cincinnati Commercial, under editor Murat Halstead. In this capacity, William was a correspondent of political news in Columbus and Washington, DC. This afforded him opportunities to meet many public figures who would later rise to even greater prominence as governors, congressmen, senators, cabinet members, and even presidents, several of whom remained in correspondence with him for years.2 When the Civil War broke out, William spent two years as a war correspondent on the front, sending his dispatches back to the Commercial. He was first assigned to General William Rosecrans' army, where he was a volunteer aide-de-camp with the rank of captain.3 He also spent several months with General George McClellan's army, before being transferred back to Rosecrans. He was present at the battle of Stones River, and Rosecrans' praise for his actions there earned him the rank of major.4 While William was reporting from the field, matters on the home front in southwest Ohio were heating up. On May 5, 1863, General Ambrose Burnside arrested congressman and Dayton resident Clement Vallandingham on charges of sedition. Vallandingham was one of the most vocal leaders of the Copperheads, a group of Democrats who opposed the war. In response to his arrest, a Copperhead mob burned down the Republican, pro-Union Dayton Journal newspaper office. A group of pro-Union Daytonians formed a committee to restore the Journal and sought help from Cincinnati Commercial editor Halstead in finding a new editor for the Journal. Halstead recommended William D. Bickham. The committee offered Bickham the job, and he accepted, moving his family to Dayton. Bickham took over the Journal on May 11, 1863, printing a small issue for the next several weeks until the main press was repaired. A sum of $6,000 was offered to Bickham as a gift to get the newspaper up and running again; he refused the gift but accepted it as a loan, which he paid off in less than 3 years. The first regular issue of the Dayton Daily and Weekly Journal reappeared on July 28, 1863. Of the delay and the reopening, Bickham wrote in his "Salutatory" in the July 28 issue: "The delay between the destruction of the old office and the issuance of the Journal in its present form, was unavoidable. Circumstances not within the publisher's control retarded operations. Some of the conditions were of a private and afflicting nature-with which the public have no concern.5 Explanations would therefore be superfluous. Suffice it that the Journal is once more before the community, and in handsome form. Let it be hoped that it will move forward uninterruptedly in a career of usefulness and prosperity... "The publisher begs leave to say further, that being desirous to rebuild the Journal upon the foundation laid by the former able Editor, Wm. F. Comly, Esq., he purchased the press of the old Journal office which the wretches of the Vallandingham tribe did not succeed in fully destroying, and the handsome Journal which you now read was printed upon that splendid machine, rebuilt and put into working condition since the fire..."6 When the Journal reopened in July 1863, its offices were protected by two loaded cannons. Bickham himself was reportedly threatened with bodily harm on numerous occasions through the end of the war. Nevertheless, he stood firmly behind his Republican opinions and his newspaper, throughout the Civil War and through the end of his life. William Denison Bickham died on March 27, 1894, at his home on Monument Avenue7 in Dayton. On March 30, he was buried in Woodland Cemetery in Dayton. His wife Maria Strickle Bickham lived 30 more years, dying on October 17, 1924, in Dayton; she was also buried in Woodland Cemetery. William D. Bickham and Maria E. Strickle had six children: 1. William Strickle Bickham (born Nov. 22, 1856; died June 16, 1912), who moved to Spokane, Washington. 2. Victor Hardy Bickham (born July 4, 1858; died June 22, 1865), who drowned. 3. Abraham Strickle Bickham (born Aug. 28, 1860; died Jan. 7, 1929), who married Amelia Herr in 1900. 4. Thomas Burns Bickham (born May 13, 1863; died June 19, 1863). 5. Daniel Denison Bickham (born Oct. 31, 1864; died Mar. 3, 1951), who married Anna Stout in 1888, then later married Sylvia. 6. Charles Goodwin Bickham (born Aug. 12, 1867; died Dec. 14, 1944), who never married. After W. D. Bickham's death, his sons Abraham, Daniel, and Charles continued to operate the Journal, until October 1, 1904, when the Journal's ownership was transferred from private ownership to a stock company. W. D. Bickham's youngest son Charles G. Bickham was a career soldier.8 He served as a Colonel on the staff of Governor William McKinley. During the Spanish-American War, he served as a Private in Company G, Third Regiment, Ohio National Guard, and later a Captain in the Ninth Regiment (Immunes), U.S. Volunteer Infantry.9 He served as a Captain during the Philippine Insurrection in the Twenty-eighth Regiment, U.S. Volunteer Infantry, under Col. William Birkhimer. After receiving his commission in the regular army as a Lieutenant, he served again in the Philippines with the Twenty-seventh U.S. Infantry under then-Captain John J. Pershing.10 C. G. Bickham was awarded a Congressional Medal of Honor in 1904 for "distinguished gallantry" at the 1902 Battle of Bayang, Mindanao, Philippines. However, after twice failing the professional examination required for promotion to captain in 1909 and 1910, he was honorably discharged from the army in June 1910. During his time in Cuba and the Philippines, Charles wrote several letters to family and friends, many of which his brother Daniel published in the Journal. Brother Abraham also served during the Spanish-American War. It is also worth mentioning that both Charles and Daniel Bickham were members of the Buzfuz Club.11 Strickle Family Maria Emily Strickle Bickham's parents, Abraham Ellis Strickle (1807-1863) and Caroline Goodwin (d. 1867), had 10 children: 1. Elizabeth Ann Strickle (1831-[after 1900]), who married John W. Dunham in 1859, then John C. Deuell in 1869. 2. Maria Emily Strickle (1833-1924), who married William Denison Bickham in 1855. 3. Mary Gano Strickle (1836-1897), who married George K. Farquhar in 1858. 4. Katharine Jane Strickle12 (1838-1919), who married Rodney Foos in 1856. 5. Caroline Margaret "Carrie" Strickle (1840-1923), who married Captain John W. Clous13 in 1874. 6. Rebecca Harriet Strickle (1843-1933), who never married. 7. Frances Williamson Strickle (1845-1894), who married Col. Henry C. Corbin14 in 1865. 8. Charles Rockwell Strickle (1848-1863). 9. Alnetta Clark Strickle (1851-1851). 10. Isaac Strickle (1852-1852). Abraham Strickle died in July 1863 as a result of a fever contracted near Vicksburg during the Civil War.15 His wife Caroline died in 1867. Afterwards, their unmarried daughters Carrie and Rebecca lived with their sister Maria Strickle Bickham and her family. Carrie Strickle Clous and Katherine Strickle Foos later lived with Maria again after their husbands had passed away. Rebecca, who never married, lived with her sister Maria Strickle Bickham, and later with her nephew Charles G. Bickham, for the majority of her life.16 1 For a more thorough description of Bickham's time in California, see: William D.

Dayton Local History 973.7416 B583R. [LPR] 5 Bickham is probably referring to the birth and death of his son Thomas Burns Bickham, who was born May 13, 1863, two days after Bickham had purchased the Journal, and died a month later on June 19, 1863.

It remained in the Bickham family until 1927 when it was purchased by the Dayton YMCA, which demolished both the Bickham house and the Thresher house next-door to build a new YMCA building.
