Hickling Cheese Factory - Lime Creek, Cerro Gordo, IA circa 1880

Anyone have any clues about a cheese factory in Lime Creek township from around 1880? Or any clues about Robert Hickling born 1831 in England or Eugene Hickling born 1858 in Owen township, Cerro Gordo county.

There is family history that says one of these two started what was the first cheese factory west of the Mississippi. The family is recorded as being in Lime Creek township in the 1880 census (a fact made difficult to find because the transcription of the 1880 census records misspelled the family name as Hichling).

I will be in Mason City near the end of July, and would like to find where the cheese factory was, and if possible, the burial site of either Robert or Eugene.
