  • COSBY, DICKINSON, HARRIS, SMITH posted by John Culley on Tuesday, April 1, 1997
  • Email:

    Griffeth Dickinson married Ann Cosby 17??. They had a son, Hickerson Cosby Dickinson (also Higginson, Hickinson, etc.). A family tradition says that Ann died when Hickerson was very young. Hickerson was taken to raise by his uncle John Cosby (Ann's brother). It was generally assumed that Hickerson's middle name was his surname since he lived with the Cosby family. Hickerson joined the army (Rev war) under the name Cosby and married under that name. His wife was Nancy (Ann) HARRIS, dtr of Archelaus Harris and Frances SMITH. About 1790 they moved to GA. Any info which will help prove or disprove the family tradition about Hickerson's surname will be appreciated.

  • FINCH, GARDNER posted by CHATHAM on Tuesday, April 1, 1997

    My JOHN GARDNER married Betsy FINCH in Campbell Co 1794. Is this the son of the JOHN GARDNER that died 1791 in Louisa Co, naming his son John Gardner. I would be inclined to think so since there's a strong connection with the Hendricks family for both John Gardners. However, the account of the estate of Stephen Yancey, 1793, names John Gardner that intermarried Ann Yancey, legatee.

    Does anyone have any information regarding Henry TROWER and his wife Martha ANDERSON? I believe they moved from Louisa County to Mercer Co., Kentucky about 1811. I am wondering if someone might know the origin of their daughter's middle name, Louisa Fitzallen Trower. I believe Henry's father was also a Henry, and his father was Thomas Trower, who may have died in Princess Anne County.

    Looking for an Elisha WHITE who moved to Caldwell Co KY around 1820 or so. He had a daughter Lucy who married A. F. JACOB there and were my gg grandparents. A brother of A.F.'s, Everard P Jacob, married Emma White whom I found in the Jackson family discussion in a Louisa Co history by Harris. Emma was born in 1808.
