Chaddock & Hickox, grain and produce dealers on Ellicott street, was established in 1886, by John B. Chaddock and George W. Hickox. In 1889 they had about 500 acres of seed wheat under cultivation. They are also largely engaged in raising and handling oats and potatoes, and in buying wool. Mr. Chaddock came to Batavia from Wyoming County in 1882, and was successfully engaged in the coal business until the present partnership was formed. He is a young man with good executive abilities, and has established an honorable record in the short period of his residence in Batavia. George W. Hickox was born in Orleans County in 1848, but his parents, Edwin and Caroline (Smith) Hickox, moved to Alexander in 1850, where they still reside. George W. was reared on the farm, and continued that business until 1882, when he engaged in selling agricultural implements. Two years later he became a resident of Batavia and engaged in his present trade. The firm has been very successful and will extend their business to meet their growing trade. Mr. Hickox married, in 1877, Miss Sarah Dean, daughter of Rev. D. S. Dean, a Baptist clergyman of Rochester. Three children have been born to them, viz.: Edwin Dear, Raymond V., and Ethel May.
