Samuel Hickman1,2,3,4

M, b. circa 1745, d. circa 1790
     Click on the above chart for the results of the Hickman DNA project, attempting to determine the ancestry of Samuel Hickman
. Samuel Hickman was born circa 1745 at Burlington Co, NJ.. He was the son of Francis Hickman and Jane Moon. He married Nannie (---). He lived in 1770 at New Honover Twp, Burlington Co, NJ.. He lived in 1774 at New Honover Twp, Burlington Co, NJ.. He lived in 1780 at Chesterfield Twp, Burlington Co, NJ.. He lived in 1785 at Georges Twp, Fayette Co, PA.. He died circa 1790 at Washington Co, PA; Greene Co. Samuel Hickman lived adjacent to the land of Peter Livengood (Robert Hickman's father-in-law) according to four different land surveys in 1786 and 1787. A subsequent deed transfer in 1800 also refers to Samuel Hickman as an adjacent resident. In a 1826 deed transfer, the adjacent land is recorded as "land of late Nannie Hickman." The land where Samuel Hickman lived is now in Jefferson Twp, Greene County. A land warrant was obtained by Silas Estel for this land on September 17, 1788. I have yet to find a connection between the Estel and Hickman families.
These land deeds are the only reference found of Samuel Hickman in Washington or Greene Counties. He is not listed in any of the annual tax lists or census of that area.

A Samuel Hickman appears in the 1785 tax list of Georges Township, Fayette County, PA. A Samuel Hickman appears on the February and May 1780 tax lists of Chesterfield Twp., Burlington County, New Jersey and the August 1774 tax list of New Hanover, Burlington County, New Jersey.

There are records of the births of four unnamed children of the Samuel Hickman of Burlington County: sons born July 26, 1766 and December 27, 1770; a daughter born 28 Aug 1768 and a daughter born "3rd of the week of April 7, 1773".
Y-DNA research has now proven that the Samuel Hickman of New Jersey is the same one, who migrated to Greene County, via Fayette County. It should be noted that Robert Hickman and William Hickman both named one of their sons "Samuel".

Specifically in 2015, Y- DNA research matched the Greene Co Hickmans to two descendants of Hickmans of Surry Co, NC, and to a proven descendant of of immigrant Francis Hickman of Chester Co, PA.

There appears to be no existing written documentation of the names of Samuel's children. Careful analysis of all the existing documents identify three sons William, Abraham and Robert.

DNA research on the descendants of sons Robert, William, and Abraham Hickman has collaborated those findings. All match exactly on the 37 DNA Y chromosone testing, with very few exceptions. This DNA analysis proves that they were all of the same biological family. See the DNA chart for details.

There is also a possibility of a son named David Hickman. Abraham Hickman sued David Hickman 23 Sep 1805, in Greene Co. (Note: in 1806 Abraham sued his brother Robert Hickman). David Hickman also appears in the Jefferson Twp, Greene Co. tax for one year: 1806.
