Biographical Sketch

David Hickox[1] is the father of the large Hickox family in the region of Southeast Georgia known as the The Wire Grass Region. David was born 13 January 1798, in Connecticut. [2]

According to family histories, David and his brother traveled to Georgia from Connecticut to purchase lumber to sell back in Connecticut. During his visit David became quite ill with a fever, while his brother returned to Connecticut with the lumber. David stayed with a local family while he was nursed back to health.[3]

David first married Elizabeth Knowles on 30 Aug 1821.[4] Elizabeth is said to have died along with their first-born child died in childbirth, although no record of her death, burial, or deceased children have been located to date. [5] Seven years later, in 1828, David and Sarah Altman were married.[6]Sarah was born in 1812 in Wayne County Georgia, [7] daughter of Thomas Altman and Lucy Leigh, [8] and died 2 Feb 1884[9].

He drew lot 232 in Cherokee Co., GA in the 1832 Cherokee Land Lottery of Georgia [10] where he would have been awarded up to 160 acres of land [11]. In 1837, David was awarded 600 acres through a headright grant.[12]

The Hickox home and farm was located between the present town of Hoboken and the village of Hickox.[14]

He was a private in the Indian War, serving in Capt. James Jones' company, Ware County militia, Aug. 26th to September 15, 1840. Later, David served as Justice of peace of the 590th district, Ware County, 1833-1841. This section of Ware where he lived was cut into Pierce County in its formation partly out of Ware in 1858, and into Brantley County in 1920.[15]

Mr. and Mrs Hickox were faithful members of the Primitive Baptist Church. They were originally members of High Bluff Church into which they were received and baptized March 10, 1841. Four years later when the church "on the Buffalo" was organized nearer their home, they were dismissed by letter from the High Bluff Church Jan. 11, 1845, to enter join New Hope Church.[16] They continued members at Hickox until their deaths. David died 24 Feb 1887 in Brantly County, Georgia, United States,and he is burred at New Hope Cemetery. Sarah and her husband David are reported to be the first to be buried in the cemetery there.[17]

Appendices

Name Discussion

Middle Name

There is no evidence from primary sources David's middle name was Jonathan or that he even had a middle name. All known sources refer to the subject as David Hickox only. Much of the confusion has likely arrision from his twin sons, David Jonathan Hickox and Jonathan David Hickox, and the many decedents named after one of these three.

Yankee Dave

There is no evidence from primary sources that David had a nick name of "Yankee Dave", in fact, I believe I have identified the source of this idea. I had previously reached out to O.J because I have run across some of his research online, and his work seems to be the source of much of the information online about the Hickox family. In an email he claim “My father and his siblings used that moniker to differentiate between their Great-Great Grandfather David Hickox and his descendants with the same name.”[20] Since then, and without citing their source, this seems to have propagated across the internet and can be found in many places.

Parents Discussion

Many online genealogies|online genealogies list David's parents as Ruben Hickox (15 Dec 1760 - 1850) and Elizabeth Sickels (1760 - 1845). I have been unable to locate any primary sources linking David to these individuals. So far, all documented links appear to be circumstantial (same name, about the same time, in the same state).

The first claims about David's parents being Ruben Hickox and Elizabeth Sickels on the internet seem to have come from from Basil King. In the late 1990's, Basil was trying to join the Sons of the American Revolution and needed a documented Revolutionary War ancestor[21] He assumed he had found David's parents when he found Ruben and Elizabeth son about David Hickox's age named David. He put the claim on the internet, where it has spread. He eventually rescinded his assertion of David's parentage.[22]

Some sources list David's place of birth specifically as New Haven, Connecticut. I have been unable to locate any primary sources to confirm this information.

DNA Evidence

In 2013 O.J. Hickox submitted a DNA sample to ancestry.com. Through their analysis the DNA matched an individual with 95% confidence, whose 3x great grand father was Ruben II HICKOX (1793-1884), a documented son Ruben HICKOX and Elizabeth SICKELS, and a 5th to 8th cousin, with “moderate“ confidence, whose 4x Great Grand Father was also Reuben Hickox. Ancestry.com also matched several other 5th to 8th cousins defending from William HICKOX William Hickox (son of Ruben Hickox II). [note 1]Because we can document O.J. is the 3x great grand son of David this suggests with high degree of likelihood a common male relative, and that male relative is likely Reuben Hickox. Documenting this connection is more difficult.

I believe the best way to put this to rest would be to perform a Y-DNA test on a documented male decedent of David Hickox, and another documented decedent of of of Ruben's other son's. If they share the same Y-DNA it would conclusive prove a common male ancestor.

Other Evidence

In 1842 James Henry HICKOX, eldest son of Reuben and Elizabeth, gave a deposition naming his siblings, including a brother David. [23] Further, as is shown below, a bible from the family of a woman who married their son Benjamin Hickox (1793/5-?) also lists a David Hickox as a family member, along with the other siblings of her husband. I received a responce, need to update. While a number of other David Hickoxes of the right approximate age have been found, no clear connection to Reuben and Elizabeth has been established with any of them.

Conclusion

Despite the lack of a clear paper trail our David is a probable candidate for the elusive son of Reuben Hickok and Elizabeth Sickels . He would have been the right age at the right time, and he fits neatly into the chronological list of their children mentioned above. While he is not found in the 1820 census, we know he moved to southern Georgia about that time then because he married Elizabeth Knowles in 1821 (who died soon thereafter). In 1830 the census taker recorded that David was born in Connecticut in 1798. That statement shows up in several later census records[24], including those of some of his children. He also drew land in North Georgia in the 1832 land-lottery[25], possibly as a result of his father’s Revolutionary War service, in which Reuben Hickox was a veteran. Finally, our family lore records that our David came to Georgia with a brother looking for timber to buy for northern interests, got sick, was taken in by a local family, and met and married a local girl (Knowles) while the brother returned to the north. Family lore also relates that he communicated with relatives in Pennsylvania for some time before the Civil War, and we know that Reuben Hickox II moved there in 1823. None of this identifies the the relative with whom David was communicating, nor does it prove a connection with Reuben and Elizabeth, but it is consistent with both the established facts and family lore.

So, while the DNA points right in their vicinity and the circumstantial evidence is strong, the search for documentation firmly linking our David to Reuben and Elizabeth must continue, and further testing may be needed.

Arrival in Georgia

1820 map of georgia[26]
The first known record of David's arrival in Georgia is his marriage to Elizabeth Knowles in 30 August 1821,[27] and doesn't appear on the federal census until 1830. The 1830 and prior census, only required the name of the head of house hold to be recorded[28], and
any person who, at the time of taking the number of any family, has his usual abode in it, is, nevertheless, notto be included in the return of that family, if his usual place of abode was, on the first Monday of August, in another family. The name of every person having no settled place of residence, is to be inserted in the columns of the schedule allotted for the heads of families in the division where such person shall be on the first Monday of August.[29]

This suggests four possibilities.

  1. David lived in Georgia, living with another family, and enumerated with in that household,
  2. David lived in Connecticut on 7 August 1820, and enumerated with a family in that state.
  3. David did not live in Georgia or Connecticut on 7 August 1820,
  4. David was not enumerated in any location.

David lived in Georgia on 7 August 1820

Future avenues of research include reviewing families on the 1820 census found near David on the 1830 and look for unexpected numbers in his age group with these other families. While not definitive, when combined with other research it may narrow the time frame David moved to the area.

David lived in Connecticut on 7 August 1820

Future research to review Hickox families in Connecticut on the 1820 and 1810 census to find possible families where David may have been enumerated.

David lived in a state other than than Georgia or Connecticut on 7 August 1820

Most of our research assumes David lived in Connecticut prior to coming to Georgia because of the birth place listed on the census records, and family histories, but we have yet to locate any evidence that this is the case. David could have been born in Connecticut and his fmaily moved to another state prior to him coming to Georgia. This suggests through examination of other Hickox families in other states may be needed. Any other Hickox families living out of the state with birth places in Connecticut may be a clue.

David was not enumerated on 7 August 1820

Once all other possibilities have been thoroughly explored, this may be what happened.

Land Discussion

Land Lottery

David's name can be found as one of the "Fortunate Drawers in Said Lottery". [31] The 1832 Land Lottery of Georgia, distributed for settlement that part of the Cherokee Indian Nation which was in located in Georgia. This was a large area generally north at the Chattahoochee River in the north west and north-central parts of the state. (See 1830 map of Georgia].) Individuals who lived in Georgia three years immediately prior to this act registered to draw in the Lottery in their counties of residence with Revolutionary War veterans were given extra draws. Anyone whose lot he had drawn and subsequently paid to the state a grant fee would have their grant issued. The grant from the State served as title to the lot and from that time he could do whatever he wished with his property, although the state did not require that he live on it or cultivate it,[32] and the lands were not settled until after a Treaty December 29, 1835 held at New Echota in Georgia, that the Cherokee finally agreed to leave their lands and move west beyond the Mississippi River.[33] While he won the right to this land, we don't know if he ever took position of it, or if he ever resided on it.[34]

David drew lot 207 which can be found on page 232 of The Cherokee Land Lottery, Containing a Numerical List of the Names of the Fortunate Drawers in Said Lottery, With an Engraved Map of Each District.[35]. It also states that at the time of the drawing, this was considered Cherokee County, but was almost immediately thereafter divided into smaller counties.[36] In this case, lot 232 was part of district 10 [37], which in turn became part of Murray County.[38] These lots were up to 160 acre plots,[39] and not 600.[40]

One of the most common assertions by online sources is that David "drew lot 232 in Cherokee Co., GA in the 1832 Cherokee Land Lottery of Georgia, and 600 acres in of land in Wayne County." Which appears to have originated from "Yankee Dave" Hickox and Sarah Altman Hickox[41], which in turn cites "The Story of Brantley County Georgia" Pg's. 61,147. This is factually incorrect.

Headright Grants

Beginning in 1783 a head of household living in Georgia could be granted 200 acres of land on his own head-right and fifty acres for each additional family member, including slaves, up to 1000 acres[47]. As part of this program, in 1837, David was awarded 600 acres as a head-right grant, south of the Big Satilla River.[48] The Bit Satilla river runing from Ben Hill and Coffee counties 260 miles to the Atlantic Ocean.[49] While not exact, it places the grant somewhere in south eastern Georgia. Currently my research shows David would have been entitled to 550 acres (200 acres for himself + 350 acres for is wife and six children as of 1832). Given most birth date information comes from census records 1850 and later, it is possible David and Sarah had child who died between 1832 and 1850, or had one slave, accounting for the additional 50 acres.[50]According to Index to the headright and bounty grants of Georgia, 1756-1909 David was awarded 600 acres in Wayne County in 1838, six years after the 1832 land lottery.

This database contains tax digest books for 137 Georgia counties from 1793 - 1892 The records are indexed and browsable by county and year. The following years are available for Pierce county: 1864, 1868, 1869, 1870,1871, 1873-1877, 1878-1882 , 1883-1887, 1890. Amongst other items, each page contains a list of individuals, the amount of land they owned, and county in which the property was located. Other than names no other personal identifying information is provided. [54]

  • two children between the ages of six and eighteen. The 1870 Census recorded one 19 year old, Luvesey Hickox, living with David. Assuming the 1870 census was recorded correctly on 1 June 1870, then their next oldest child, Harley Jacob Hickox, was born between 1849 and 1850, and could have been one of the two children between six and eighteen years old recorded on this tax digest.

According to to tax roll records (1864, 1868, 1870, 1871) David owned between 480 and 1315 acres.[59] It is currently difficult to for me to decipher these records. I'm not sure if it is the same David Hickox who owns multiple parcels or if each record was for other David Hickox.


I believe these documents refer to the subject David Hickox for two reasons. First, the 1840 lists David Hickox in the 590th Militia District. Second, these documents show know family members owning property in the same general area paying taxes.

Web Site Discussion

Find A Grave

Find a Grave - This site is great for obtaining photo's of the actual headstone, and is the only source that I have been able to locate with a birth date, but any information not specifically in the photo should be verified. For example, I submitted a correction request via their website to remove Jonathan and "Yankee Dave" from the listing on 12/27/17, but it didn't ask for any justification for my request, and said they would contact the memorial owner.

After a few days, the memorial owner has approved the changes and the website now reflects more closely what we have actual evidence for. Always review primary sources, in this case the actual picture of the head stone, to verify the information on the website is correct. This is a good example of why nothing online should be taken at face value.

Ancestry

Ancestry - This site is great for getting started on your research journey of David. It has several well documented facts, but nothing groundbreaking or new. It also has a tendency to include unsubstantiated "facts" without documentation or evidence. The ease at which this information can now be copied and published online has begun to change the perception of these claims by many hobbyists from speculative, which is clear of you spend the time to find the origins of these claims, to something accepted as common knowledge. This is dangerous, because sound research can easily be lost.

  22. Basil originally found Reuben and Elizabeth by census records for all the David Hickoxes of about the age of our David. It was then that he thought was our David as the son of Reuben (I) & Eliz. Hickox. Later Basil found found (now believed to be incorrectly) Reuben and Elizabeth's David living in the mid-west with his widowed mother Elizabeth during the time when our David was clearly living in Georgia. I think he somehow confused this latter David with the son of Reuben & Eliz. that we now have good reason to believe was our YD, and retracted his assertion that he had found YD’s parents.
