|Birth: ||Jul. 27, 1848|
Annie Katherine McCormick was the daughter of James D. McCormick and Ann (believed to be Prentice) McCormick.
The following information is from a small history one of William and Annie Katherine's children left. I have written a portion of it here as it was given to me by Ruth, a direct descendant. Ruth lived in Bryan, TX.
Annie Katherine McCormick was married to William Rederick Hicks(nicknamed Buck")at Uncle John McCormick's house in Arkansas County Arkansas, the 3rd day of June 1866. Their first child was born Oct 3, 1867. Her name was Mary Ann. She was three years old when her parents moved to Texas. They moved to Texas in a wagon pulled by mules. They were on the road four weeks and fourteen days. (it is belived by most that this should have read four months and 14 days) They were water bound. It snowed, sleeted and rained on them. Our father hired a man to help him pack and get ready to move. He had a cough. They thought he had a cold, but it proved to be whooping cough and mother took whooping cough on the road. Not until then did they realize that the hired man had it. Exposure caused it to settle in her lungs and caused her to be sickly there after. She died six years later.
***The following is what descendants of 4 of the children of James and Ann McCormick have collected over many years of research***
When Annie Katherine's mother (Ann) died her father (James D. McCormick) placed his 5 children in The Pleasant Hills Mercer County Kentucky Shakers Home. James went to California married 2 more times and had 9 more children. He never returned to Kentucky. He became Sheriff of Placer County CA for 8 years.
The son, John R. McCormick, stayed with the Shakers 4 years. John left and married Martha Hammond. They came to Texas to the Georgetown Williamson County area. They had children and owned much land and several businesses including an ice plant in Taylor Texas. John worked for the Rail Roads. He was appointed to a commission in Washington State and moved there in 1898, but died there in 1899.
The 4 girls stayed with the Shakers 12 years leaving when John came and took them away.
Emma Frances McCormick, the oldest, is believed to have returned to the Shakers and lived out her life as a Shaker.
Margaret Matilda McCormick married George U. Steadman who had been at the Shaker home since he was 5 years old. Margaret and George had 3 sons and a daughter that was born after reaching Texas.
Hester Jane "Hettie" McCormick married John White at her brother's home in Arkansas the same day that Annie Katherine married Buck Hicks.
Hettie and John had a son they named George Prentice White. As the families were moving to Texas Hettie became ill and died and was buried "some where along the way". George was about 5 years old and was raised by his mother's sister, Margaret Steadman in Georgetown and Taylor. George White was my husbands grandfather.
