Asa and Esther Hinman Hickok

Do anyone of my Halfway Brook readers know if anyone with the surname Hickok still lives in the Town of Highland?

Asa and Esther Hinman Hickok and their five children moved from Connecticut to what was Lumberland in 1811. Their daughter Hannah married James Eldred (my ancestors) after his first wife died. Their son Justus seems to have been the only other descendant who stayed in the area.

Justus and Mary Wells Hickok’s children:
David and Mary Russell Hickok had several children.
William and Almeda Drake Hickok had several children.
Robert Land (d. 1918) and Charlotte Hulse Hickok.
William and Mary Hickok Stidd.
Charles (d. 1923) and Sarah DeHart Hickok.

    I was wondering if you have any family stories about David Hickok he seems to have moved from Highland over to Penn. But I don’t have stories.

    I know my grandfather as a child visited Highland so it would have been after 1910ish, and there was a family story that the family blow the top off a mountain (hill) while either lumbering or mining. Not sure which they were doing at the time. Could you let me know if you know, thanks.

    From Louise: Hello Joanne, I assume this is David the son of Asa and Esther? I have a David Heacock in Upper Smith, Pike County, PA in the 1820 census. He has three males under 10; 1 male 10–15; 1 male 26–45; 1 female 26 and over. I have not heard the “top of the mountain/hill blowing off” story.

    Maybe there is a Halfway Brook reader that has more information.

    I know when we did family research they all seemed to move away. I lived in Narrowsburg for awhile and now I’m down the road in Apalachin, was in Owego for the latest flood, I seem to be following in the family foot steps. Not on purpose just happened that way, guess my next stop is in Montrose Pa.

    Thank you to those who sent in suggestions. I have found a descendant of William and Almeda Drake Hickok!

    As far as I can determine the Hickok family seems to have moved out of the Town of Highland by 1920.
