I have a Margaret Ida Hickey b.31 Jan 1892, the second child of eight born to John William Hickey and Mary Louise Lapointe in my ancestry file. If this is your relative, let me know. I have most of the Hickey family on file and will forward what information I have. The change in the spelling of the name was simply the choice of the census taker. Almost all of the Hickeys in that area at that time were the descendants of John Hickey and Marguerite Lapointe, and it was a very large family. John William Hickey was a grandson.
