Thank you and I might try to contact him in the future.
As of now, I am not actively researching my Hickey ancestors. although I would really love to know what happened to my husband's great great grandmother, Mary Adeline Comstock Jones Hickey.St. Francis Co., Arkansas was where she was living in 1870 with her husband, Edward Hickey/Hicky .She was married previously to William Duncan Jones from whom she was divorced.They had 2 children and William D. Jones raised them.The Jones family never knew what became of Mary Adeline after 1870.The Jones family was from Maury Co., Tennessee.
But I appreciate you telling me about Philip.He could very well be connected to my Hickey ancestors.
