Have you been able to find any useful information yet? I have alot of the Butler side, if you are still needing it. Let me know either way, by now maybe you have some information that I could use!

Hi Joseph,
Have heard in my family that James Butler is also a great...great uncle...but unsure at this point. Earliest Hickok I have reliable details on is:
William Fleming Hickok, Born 13 June 1863 in CHristiansburg VA. Father was Samual M. Hickok, born 1828 (the year after James Butler's parents were married. Samual is my ggg grandfather. Might you have information on the siblings of Wild Bill? Samual may be his brother.

Much obliged,
Brett Rierson

A family tradition said that "Wild Bill" was my great-grandmother's second cousin (I forget the "how many times removed). She was Nellie Mae Hickok, daughter of Benjamin Herkimer Hickok and Sarah Hendry Hickok. Benjamin H. was the son of David Guernsey Hickok. Anything you would care to supply in connecting Wild Bill with either David G., his son Benjamin H. or Benjamin's daughter Nellie Mae would be greatly appreciated. And thank you in advance.

Have any of you seen or read the Hickok book? It's called "Pioneer Settlers of Troy Grove" and is still available through the Adams House Museum. It's a pretty detailed history of the Hickok family and has been really useful to me in my research.

I have been to his grave in Deadwood, but didn't know at the time that he was a relative!

Thank you for mentioning "Pioneer Settlers". It was compiled by my mother, Edith Andrews Harmon (daughter of Susan Hickok, of Horace Hickok, bro. of James Butler Hickok). We have made this book available to the Adams Museum and Mother would have been delighted that you found it.
