From the January 1, 1886 edition of The New York Times:

HEIDELBACH, ICKELHEIMER & CO.
FOREIGN BANKERS, NO. 29 WILLIAM STREET

     Among the many banking houses of which New York is justly proud that of Heidelbach, Ickelheimer & Co. is one of the most prominent and substantial.  This firm has been in existence under the present firm name some ten years, but the individual members have been engaged in the banking business for a much longer period.  The senior Mr. Philip Heidelbach began his successful career in the clothing trade, having founded the great manufacturing concern of Heidelbach, Seasongood & Co., of Cincinnati, over forty years ago. 
    While still remaining in the manufacturing business, having amassed a large fortune, he embarked in the banking business, forming the well known house of Epsy, Heidelbach & Co., also of Cincinnati, which during the past 25 years has won an eviable reputation.  The other gentlemen composing the firm--Mr. Isaac Ickelheimer and Mr. Alfred S. Heidelbach, both of whom have been engaged in banking the greater portion of their lives--are well and favorably known in financial circles both her and in Europe.
    Mssrs. Heidelbach, Ickelheimer & Co. transact a general foreign banking business: they buy and draw bills of exchange, make cable transfers, and issue travelers' letters of credit on prominent houses in all parts of the world....
