Hi Connie: Thanks for the fast response. I don't know anything about the Ryan individual. I didn't know that Nancy Jane was remarried. I know that she was living with her daughter Rhoda when she died according to the Obit. Rhoda was first married to George Jones then she remarried but I don't recall who her later husband was. I still have a copy somewhere of Thomas Hickey and his wife which I will send you by snail mail if you fwd your address. I live in the Hixson Tn area just north of Chattanooga. I attended the Hickey reunion about three or four years ago and really enjoyed it. The Thomas D Hickey background has me thoroughly entrigued. I wish I could find a DNA comparison between his offspring and the other Hickeys. I still believe that Thomas was a grandson of the John Hickey and Mary Hickey of VA. Let me know if you want the picture by snail mail. I have never attached a picture on the internet and don't know how. Wasn't Benjamin married several times? I know he and Thomas were living with another individual in the later census records. Do you have any idea when he left for Texas. let me hear from you by email if you want to notify me of your address.
