Hannah Simmons Holley Wicker
Birth: 1742
North Carolina, USA
Death: Aug. 12, 1818
Jackson
Cape Girardeau County
Missouri, USA

My 6th great-grandmother. Daughter of Nathaniel Holley, Jr. & Jane Simmons; granddaughter of Nathaniel Sr. & Jean (Ricks) Holley and Edward & Hannah (Boothe) Simmons.

Married Robert Hester Wicker, about 1755 in Gencide Co., NC. They had at least 12 children: John, Martha (Patty), William, Jane, Sarah (Sally), Hannah, James W., Rachael St. Julian, Robert Elisha, Nathaniel Holley, Julius A., and my Grandma, Nancy.

Rev Carlos Jones Tyler in his book "Gleanings in the Family Field" Compiled, Edited and Privately Published by Mary-Helen Sears Foxx. Glendale, AZ 1976: "Feb 2, 1966, Dear Mrs. Watkins, I was quite shocked to learn that Robert Wicker died in Missouri and that he was buried there. We did not know that he went to Missouri. When he came to Washington Co., GA he was not a young man and had several married children and some grandchildren. We know that he was in Georgia for about twenty years, and would have been between sixty-five and seventy years old at the time that some of his daughters and sons-in-law went to Missouri. However we have no records of his or his wife's death and burial in Georgia. We had always taken it for granted that he was buried with his wife in the Wicker Cemetery in Washington County. The same place where Nathaniel Holly, father of Hannah Holly Wicker was buried..."

Many thanks to SR Smith for checking the cemetery and finding that indeed Grandma Hannah is without a stone: "Numerous graves marked with an UNKNOWN headstone. A memorial marker lists those they believe to be buried there- but unidentified. Hannah Wicker is on that list."
