Jemina Wicker Crews
Birth: 1739
New Kent County
Virginia, USA
Death: 1825
Granville County
North Carolina, USA

Jemima (or Jamina) Wicker was the daughter of Benjamin Whicker and his second wife. [Some records say Thomas Wicker and Mary Hester but I think that is wrong.] In 1755 she married Gideon Crews in Hannover VA, and subsequently they moved to Granville County, NC. After Gideon died, she was listed in the 1820 census in Granville NC as the head of household, living alone; 1 male slave, 3 female slaves
