Thank you. I went to the local downtown Columbus Library 2 or 3 days back and found obits on them in a book of Athens County obituaries collected for 1915-1919. It has three obituaries for the couple. I have the names for 3 out of the 4 children from the 1920 censuses. I presume the fourth died not long after the parents.
Edna was d/o George Hickman and Samantha Leach who lived in Jackson County:
............ 3 George Riley Hickman b: 20 Jan 1855 VA/WV, Wood Cty
………………………………………….d: 2 June 1938, Harlem Twp, Delaware Co., OH
................ +Samantha Alretta Leach b: 1 Jul 1858 d: 5 Dec 1918 m: 29 Jul 1878, OH, Ross Cty
(d/o George Alexander Leach (13 Feb 1820-8 Nov 1893) and
                     Mary Alice Leach (25 Sep 1826-15 Apr 1863))                            
………….George and Samantha are buried Hickman Cemetery, Jackson County, OH
……………………George and Mary Leach are buried Sigler Cemetery, Jefferson Twp, Ross Cty, OH.

................... 4 Edna Hickman b: 15 Sep 1884/1885, OH d: 3 Mar 1919, Columbus OH
…………………….+ Clyde B. Woodard b: 8 Jan 1882, Nelsonville OH d: 8 Mar 1919, Columbus OH
……………………….s/o Ward N. Woodard (29 Sept 1841-26 Dec 1922, Nelsonville OH) and
……………………………Violet Smith (4 Jan 1855, Lynchburg PA-31 Mar 1943, Columbus OH
……………………..Edna and Clyde are buried Greenlawn Cemetery, Nelsonville, Athens County, OH
………………………Four children survived them and they were recovering from the flu in March 1919.
I have potentially Wendal (c. 1912), Elinor (c. 1915), and Wayne (c. 1917).
Elinor would be named for great-grandmother, Eleanor Nelson (d/o Daniel Nelson) who married Ichabod Woodard Jr.
