John was born in Mississippi or possibly Georgia in roughly 1858 His son John Latham Hickman was my great grandfather through my Daddy's Mother, Zola Norma Hickman. I have virtually no information beyond where they lived in Arkansas and what John L, did for a living.

John A was married to Malinda Smith in Mississippi and they moved to Arkansas at some point.

I also found this showing a John Hickman married to an Elizabeth Smith listed on a death certificate for a John J Hickman who died in Louisiana in 1954 could they be connected?

"Louisiana Deaths Index, 1850-1875, 1894-1956," database, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:F39M-PDH : accessed 8 April 2016), John Hickman in entry for John J Hickman, 19 May 1954; citing Monterey, Concordia, Louisiana, certificate number 5865, State Archives, Baton Rouge; FHL microfilm 1,574,392.

 

Also found these for John A. You might research these and find out something one way or another about if this is him.
