    Thank you ~ I have seen that one and it appears to be the same person ~ I just can figure out who his parents were.
    Maybe you can find a Rebecca who married a Hickey in or around 1826 in Illinois?

    Using the above data on Ancestry.com I come up with this record.

    I have just started looking at this group.  I have a mtdna mnatch that comes down from his sister Bornice,  It sure looks to me like their parents would have to be Ashley Hickey b. 1803 TN and his wife Nancy b. 1807 TN who live next door to him in the 1850 Mason Ill. census.  I'm very interested in his mothers maiden name.

    Thank You ~ I think that is the case too ~ looking for more "proof" :o)

    I found these census records ~ Spelling of his name changes several times but I believe it is our guy.

    The information on the census report is all very much correct, proof for this is hard to find due to the years. However I have reliable information that it is the truth direct from the publisher of the Hickey book.
    How does one get a copy of the book?
