Russell:
I am not related.

WWI Draft registration for Cornelius L. Hickey provides following info:

Born 12 Nov 1888, Ireland, Alien
worked for Santa Fe RR as Switchman
was tall, stout, blue eyes, light brown hair
single,resided Needles CA, age 28 as of 17 June 1917.

I believe Co I, 59th INF Brig. served in France, was in the Siegfield Line, as others in that company were killed there.
Hope this helps...you can google on "CO I, 59th INF WWI" and see some of the battles they were in. I googled on his name and he apparently has a Military Stone.
