Re: Trying to find info
Well, I have a William Lucas who is said to have married a Mary Hickembottom (note the "m"). I know nothing more of either of them, except that he (William) was one of 19(!) children of Robinson Lucas (b. ca1750-d.10/18/1837) and Mary (Polly) Prickett (Robinson and Mary are said to have married ca 1772 in Monongalia Co (W)VA -- though Monongalia wasn't formed, I think, until 1776).Mary Prickett was the daughter of Capt Jacob Prickett of present-day Marion Co WV.
The Robinson Lucas family moved to present-day Brown Co, OH, so perhaps there were Hickenbottoms/Hickembottoms there.
Brown Co has an active genealogical society that has a library open as far as I know a 2-3 days a week including Saturdays. The people there were very friendly and helpful when I was there in 1998. It's located in Georgetown, OH, the county seat.
