RE: Jesse Havries Oates and Mary Miller Oates
Hi Loretta, thank you for your message. I am sorry to say that you lost me at John McClure (1735 - 1819)
father of Elizabeth Reid McClure. I don't have any info after that about any of the other folks you listed. Sorry I can't help you, but I wish you luck with your research.

Sincerely, Vickie

William Burke Hickman
Sorry, but I'm not a direct Hickman descendant, I was actually researching the Witherspoons, when I came across the information I used to open the Oak Grove Cemetery memorials.

I left the birth/death dates open for William Burke Hickman because I have no proof of when I believe he was born and died.

However, if you take my guess work with a grain of salt, I would speculate that he was born 27 Jul 1803 in either Bourbon or Crittenden Co KY and died within a few years of the family's migration to Montgomery Co IL. My guess would be 06 Mar 1858 in Bear Creek Twp.

I base my guess work on the fact that he was last enumerated on the 1850c in Crittenden Co KY and the last child born in the family was Cornelius born abt 1854 in Montgomery Co IL and William Burke Hickman is not enumerated with the family on the 1860 census.

Considering the date inscribed on his headstone appears to be 06 Mar 1833, I've taken the liberty of guessing it was likely 1858, since the numbers could easily appear to be 1833 on such an old stone inscription. So using the death year as 1858 at the age of 54years 7mos 9days his birth date would have been about 27 Jul 1803.

Sorry I couldn't be or more help.
