Re: David Johnathan VS Johnathan David Hickox, S.E. Ga.
I have now been advised by e-mail that indeed there were twins, David Jonathan was killed in the Civil War. He had married Caroline Crawford and had (at least) one child, William Madison Hickox,(March 03, 1861 ~ March 03, 1926) apparently named in honor of his maternal Grandfather, William Madison Crawford. William M. Hickox is also seen in censuses as William T. Hickox. This indicated a multiple middle name, as many did have.
Jonathan David who married Lucenda Jones, raised a large family whos decendents still live in the S.E. Georgia area.
The 1880 census that indicated the name was D. Jonathan Hickox should have been logged (in my opinion) as Jonathan D. Hickox
