I am trying to compile the various Hickman families which have the tradition (and/or proof) of Native American ancestry. I know this tradition exists in many different branches of the Hickman family name. If you have such a family tradition and/or specific names, tribes, etc., please e-mail the information to me, or post it on the Hickman message board. Once the information has been gathered, I would be happy to forward it to anyone who is interested.

Someone recently mentioned to me that Christina Hickman was Osage. My wife is her 5g-granddaughter. I have Jacob Hickman and Catherine Coomer as her parents, but no documented proof.

Christina Hickman/Osage?

Hi Ian,

Thank you for the information - One of my cousins (Vicki Bruce Gorby) had also mentioned Jacob and Catherine Coomer Hickman as possibly being Christina's parents, but I don't know the source of this. Some time ago I read about the Keelings possibly being Osage, but again, I was unable to find out where the information came from. The only Hickman/Coomer connection I have been able to find was (I think) James Hickman - and if the dates (marriage, etc.) were correct, it wasn't the right time period for them to be Christina's parents - anyone with additional information on this?

indian blood in the Ketchum line too. If you

I to am looking for information on the Hickmans with Native American. I have been told by my grandmother that we were related to Pocahantas. I have not been able to make a connection. From the Hickmans side to the Aldridges, or could be spelled Eldridges. The grave stone has Aldridge on it. Her name was Elizabeth Aldridge that married H.D. Hickman. I am not sure if his name was was Harland or not. I you have some informantion on this please let me know thanks Sandy (Hickman) Lee

I have a book written by Hope Hilton about the Hickmans. It starts with the early pioneers and takes them from Virginia, North
Carolina, Kentucky, Missouri and Utah.It has
a lot of information and names. I don't see
any for an Aldridge, Eldridge, or Harland (H.D.) Do you have any other names?

My Grandfather was Charley Erskine Hickman and his wife was Elizabeth Mae Holloway who was supposed to be one half Cherokee. My g-g-grandfather was Thomas Hickman from Sevier Co. It is said that the Cherokee there called him Cat Hickman and that he had a cherokee wife. I am not sure of this but I do know that there are Cherokee with the last name of Hickman in Cherokee North Carolina

I don't know if it has a name, but it is written by Hope Hilton. She is deceased but you can order it from her husband. I think it was $12.00. His phone number is: 801 487-0527. Fax: 801 485-3385
