Hickman Family Photos
Submitted by: Jerry
This is the photo of my Great Great
Grandparents, John Andrew & Emily (Carter) Hickman.
My grandfather had written on the back of the photo "Grandpa
Hickman; Age 55; Cleveland, TN."
With the age, I was able to determine that the photo should be from the
year of 1871.
John & Emily lived on a farm just south of the Julian Gap in the
White Oaks Mountains of Bradley County.
The farm was in the Hickman name for nearly 100 years before it was
sold around 1940 or so.
Both are buried in Lee Cemetery, along with several other family
members, near the old homeplace.
This is the
of Russell Carson & Mary Elizabeth (Williams) Hickman
taken around 1905 or 1906 in Wapanucka, Indian Terr., now
Oklahoma. This would have
been about five or six years after their move from Bradley County.
Names are as follows;
top row ; L - R : Andy
Fletcher, (my grandfather), Minnie, Elyah, & Viola.
bottom row ; L- R : Dona,
Russell Carson, Robert, Mary Elizabeth, Herschel, & William.
Russell was the
eight child of nine born to John & Emily Hickman.
All but Robert & Herschel were born in Bradley County.
