Born in New York in 1914, Benjamin was the son of William Hendry Hickok (1871-1937) who was a railroad conductor on the Ulster and Delaware Railroad. He had met his wife, Sarah Peters, while boarding at their home in Bloomville.

Sarah Peters was the daughter of William Blakely Peters who had been born in Stamford and came to Bloomville at the age of twelve, this being about 1849. At the age of twenty-one, he entered into mercantile business at Bloomville with Samuel McCune, under the firm name of McCune & Peters, and the following winter was elected Justice of the Peace.

Sarah's mother, Hannah (pictured above with Benjamin), was the daughter of James Rich and Jane (Southard) of South Kortright. She married William Blakely Peters in Delaware County, New York in the year 1861.
