Looking for HICKMAN of Kentucky/Illinois
I have been interested in genealogy since my father researched his parents ancestry. I wanted to start researching my mother's side of her family. Her father's name was Earl Burke Cary b 17 Sep 1901 d Oct 1979 and her mother was Chlorus Melissa Hickman b 5 Nov 1902 d 14 Mar 1972. The Cary line is very easy to trace, but the Hickman line has been my brick wall. My 3rd great grandfather was William Burke Hickman b 27 Jul 1803 in Crittenden, KY d 6 Mar 1958 in Montgomery Co., IL. I cannot find any information on his parents.
William Burke Hickman son was Walker Franklin Hickman, his son was Elbert McLean Hickman and his daughter was Chlorus Melissa Hickman.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
