This is a call out to anyone who may have HICKMAN relatives or ancestors in or from the Pickens County, AL area.I am searching for descendants and/or ancestors of John Clayton HICKMAN and Frances Jane CRAFT HICKMAN.These folks moved from Georgia or South Carolina to Pickens County around 1878.They have children buried in the cemetery in Anderson County, SC, but by 1880, they show up in the Pickens Co census as:
HICKMAN, John age 49 b GA Jane age 39 b GA Ella age 13 b SC Gertrude age 11 b Sc James age 4 b SC Isie age 9 mo b AL
They show up again in 1920 Pickens Co census and are living alone, age 89 and 79, both born in SC, this census says.Some of their children still live in Pickens Co.
How did they come to be in Alabama?Who were John and Frances Jane's parents (one genealogist once told me she was the dau of Connie Craft and Sally Cash, but I have yet to confirm)?Are they related to other Hickmans in Anderson Co, SC?
If you can be of any help, I would greatly appreciate it.Thanks, and I look forward to hearing from anyone who'd like to correspond.
