Abraham Vickers

Lists all adult children as:

1. Mary Vickers Baker
2. Rachel Vickers Scarborough
Ralph Vickers
4. John Vickers
5. Sarah Vickers Scarborough

Administrators Nathan & Hardy are probably Abrahamís brothers (although they could be nephews).

I glanced (literally) through the files last night. A few first impressions follow. Forgive me if any of it is old news to you but I thought you might be interested if it isn't.

1. REF: Abraham Vickers file and the names of his children: Mary Vickers BAKER, Rachel Vickers SCARBOROUGH, Ralph Vickers, John Vickers, and Sarah Vickers SCARBOROUGH....from his will in 1824.

Read the will of Ralph Vickers of Edgecomb in 1761: "Aug. 11, 1761. Sept. Ct., 1762. Wife & Extx: SARAH, lend plantation whereon I live, reversion to youngest son ABRAHAM, 1 negro to be sold at her death, money divided between 4 youngest chil., horse, saddle, bridle, 2 pewter dishes, pewter tankard, 6 pewter plates, best iron pot and frying pan; Eldest son & Exr: RALPH, plantation bought of WILLIAM WILLIAMSON, hourse, large gun, sword; sons: JOHN, plantation bought of JOHN MOORE, also horse and gun; ABRAHAM, mare bought of EDWARD BURTON to be shared with SARA: SARA, furniture, residue to be divided between wife SARAH and her four chil, MARY BAKER, RACHEL SCARBOROUGH, eldest daus, L 2-15 S each. Wit: MOSES BAKER, BENJAMIN BRAND, AARON BAKER."

Ralph Vickers of Edgecomb Co. NC mentions HIS WIFE SARAH's four children (possibly as opposed to his own) including Mary Baker and Rachel Scarborough in 1761.

Abraham Vickers of Pulaski Co. GA mentions his adult children including Mary Baker and Rachel Scarborough in 1824....63 years later. I am very interested in this coincidence. Do you by chance have a copy or abreviated text of Abraham's will? Also, do you have a file with any information for Ralph Vickers of Edgecomb County? I am trying to line my information up and am very suspicious of the "trees" availble if I can avoid them...thanks. Vernon

Correction on Laurens-Abraham Vickers


Have just looked at some stuff on Ancestry which you submitted.
The Abraham B. Vickers in Decatur County was son of Nathan Vickers. He was born 18 Dec. 1815 according to Nathan's Bible record. I figure that he was born in Burke Co, Ga as that was where Nathan lived up until ca 1824. Nathan was in Pulaski in 1826 from deed record. Nathan got land patent in Leon Co., Fl 13 Aug. 1827.
Nathan died 27 May 1847 in Decatur Co. He is buried at Tired Creek Methodist Church, Grady Co. Ga by his wife Elizabeth Jane Moore who died 11 March 1841.

I suspect that Nathan named this son Abraham after his uncle Abraham who gave him land.

That deed in Book G p. 207, 5 Jan 1814, Pulaski Co, Ga was witnessed by a John Vickers and an Emanuel Bennett. Do you suppose that Bennett was one of your connections? The deed is from Abraham of Pulaski to Nathan Vickers, esq. of Co. of Burke, for love, goodwill and affection, reserving a life estate in 202& 1/2acres of 20th Wilkinson, now Pulaski, Lot 242.

Deed Book H, p. 46, Pulaski Co, Ga l Sept. 1828, Hardy and Nathan Vickers, Adms. of estate of Abraham Vickers of Pulaski sold lot 238, 20th dist to Elizabeth Posey, widow of Humphrey Posey.

The estate of Abraham that Nathan & Hardy were administrators of started 20 Jan 1824-Book of Estate Returns 1822-1824, Pulaski Co. and seemed to go on for a number of years, even to when Nathan was in Leon co.

There were two Abrahams-1820 Ga. Census- one Abraham in Jefferson Co. and one Abram in Pulaski. On the 1805 Land lottery there was an Abraham who got 1 draw (indicating a single man) and one who got 2 draws (indicating a married man). They were in Washington Co.


Thanks Barbara!!!
