I am currently working on a book about my Hickok ancestors which will cover 1635 to 1886. I will be posting updates on this page as I have time.
September 2016 Update
I continue to work on my Hickok ancestors’ book. The last month or so I have researched some of the political, economical, and religious reasons people left England in the 1630s.
I recently purchased Pioneer Settlers of Troy Grove, Illinois (Hickok, Andrews, and others) by Edith Andrews Harmon, originally published in 1973.
I believe that Edith was a grand niece of “Wild Bill Hickok.” Wild Bill and my Hickok ancestors descended from Joseph and Mary Carpenter Hickok. Joseph was the younger son of William and Elizabeth Hitchcock.
Pioneer Settlers has some very helpful, well-researched information. A discussion of possible ancestors of William Hitchcock who sailed from London in 1635 on the Plain Joan was helpful. Though there is no conclusive document as to William’s ancestors.
