The Vickers Family Resource Page

"Life is like a tale that is told. . ."

Welcome to the Vickers Family Resource Page! The contents of this page and related documents and files, represent a labor of love for my parents, brothers and sisters, aunts, uncles, and cousins (no matter how distant!). In addition to the telling of the story of our particular branch of the Vickers family, it is our intent to provide resource files on the larger Vickers family in the South for those researching their own branch of the family.  Most of the Vickers families in the South in the 18th and 19th centuries are related. We are attempting to find and document those relationships. Any assistance you can provide in this endeavor will help all the Vickers cousins to find their place in the telling of this tale!
Contributions are welcomed for addition to the files for sharing with others. Contributions, comments, and corrections will be gratefully accepted and may be directed to

  I maintain a Vickers mail list to let the cousins know when I have completed another update to the Page. If you would like to be added to the mail list, please let me know!

The Working Files

The following working files are roughly divided according to geographic division. I say "roughly" since obviously there will be some overlap in the divisions as the families were constantly on the move as they migrated south, west, and yes, north. The Vickers migrated out from Virginia much in the same pattern as the order of the divisions. Be sure to check the files in surrounding states if you do not immediately find a link. My tendency in organizing is to place a file first in the state of the earliest known ancestor, or second, in the state where most of the records are found, or third, where they died, or fourth, whatever mood I was in at the time. If you have any good suggestions for organization, let me know!

The Photographs

Upon the suggestion of David Millican, we would like to invite you to submit pictures of your Vickers' ancestors for inclusion. So that more cousins may benefit from finding pictures of their Vickers' relatives, we would ask that all submissions be limited to those Vickers' ancestors and their spouses born prior to 1900.  Submissions may be made by sending a photograph (David suggests Kinko's for a good color copy of a black and white print) or by email attachment in .jpg format to my address below. Along with your pictures include the name, birth date and place, and death date and place of your Vickers' ancestor.

Go to the Photo Index.
