Assuming all these Vickers in Jefferson Co. are probably brothers/sisters or cousins, I have some ideas which family they belong to in GA because of the name "Hatcher." I can provide more detail if this is the line you are looking for, but I will briefly summarize: This branch of the Vickers I find in NC in the 1700's. John (c.1710-1785) and Mary Vickers have at least 13 children. One daughter, Martha (b. c. 1746), marries a William Hatcher Feb. 21, 1865, and move to SC along with one or moreof her brothers. Martha's other brothers move to GA in the 1780/90's, Burke/Washington Co. area. One of Martha's brothers (maybe John) names a son "Hatcher," born about 1773. There is some exchange of property between Hatcher and Joshua in Pulaski Co., GA in 1811. Hatcher or one of his brothers is probably the father of the Jefferson Co. family. Anyway, this Hatcher ends up in Henry Co., AL by 1847.
There are two Vickers lines showing up in GA in the 1770-90's. One showing up in Wilkes, Ogelthorpe,
Clarke, counties that migrates westward into central
About Hatcher- I've read & 2 other researchers have told me that my Hatcher's daddy was named John. (Maybe there's more than one Hatcher. Wouldn't suprise me, with their naming habits!) I have to see proof for myself, though. Nona Elder, email, 6/4/96
Vickers Letter Handwritten; Not dated
Dear Mr. Lewis Vickers:
In regard to your inquiries about my family history I have tried to assemble
my family history to the best of my knowledge. My grandfather's name was
Hatcher Vickers and father's name was Andrew, often called Drew. Just from
father's talk, he said he came with his father at the age of six from
**Notes: The above letter is written on a sheet of business stationery titled:
ROUTE 32 HIGHWAY ASSOCIATION "A Paved Highway
Printed across the top of the letterhead is the following:
LEWIS VICKERS, Ex-Chm., Coffee Co. Commissioners
LEWIS VICKERS, Pres., 11th
Copy of Letter in Possession of Nona Elder firstname.lastname@example.org
My Vickers were here in
About Hatcher: I also have a copy of the Vickers letter dated 1845 from Gadsen Co., FL. This is the Hatcher I am descended from.
(There's another, more on him in a moment.) The "Uncle Hatcher"
referred to is mine & the "Uncle Drew" is his brother Andrew.
(There's also 3 generations of Andrew's) Uncle Hatchers 3 sons are: William,
Jack & Andrew "Drew". The Susan mentioned is their sister who is
my g-g-grandmother. She married a Grantham boy. Susan's brother Drew married
the Grantham boy's sister Mary. That is my direct link to this letter. Now
about that OTHER Hatcher Vickers I mentioned: I found the following obituary
extract from the newspaper "Eufaula Times & News" from
Received your memo with the attached letter you typed up. This is very helpful as it mentions not only the relationships in the letter but also that Hatcher left SC about the age of 6! This helps in being able to trace the migration and family. More on this in a moment. . .
I have included the will of John Vickers (1784) Edgecombe Co., NC. You may want to print this out as you work through this letter. I will assume that the order in which the the sons are listed is their birth order. The daughters follow the sons and are probably in birth order among the females, but "mixed into" the order of their brothers. I would propose the following order, but open to correction, of course:
1. Abram, b.c. 1736
2. Jacob, b.c. 1738
3. John, b.c. 1740
4. George, b.c. 1742
5. Benjamin, b.c. 1744
6. Martha, b.c. 1746 (m. William Hatcher, 2/21/1765)
7. Raif, b.c. 1748
8. Mary, b.c. 1750 (m. John Morris)
9. Joshua, b.c. 1752
10. Patience, b.c. 1754 (m. a "Stokes")
11. Joseph, b.c. 1756
13. Stephen, b.c. 1760
Of the above children, it is likely that Abram, Jacob, John, Joshua,
It would appear from several sources (Wills, letters, Huxford) that Hatcher had at least the following brothers and sister: Joel, Jesse, Jacob, Wiley, Drewry, Younge, and Kashire. Probably more, but at least these. It's possible that Hardy, Nathan, and James (from Burke Co., GA originally) are also brothers in this group).

First record found on Hatcher Vickers was Deed Book H. p. 135, 21 Sept 1811, Pulaski Co., Ga wherein Joshua Vickers of Laurens County deeded to Hatcher Vickers of Laurens C. one-half of lot 245, original 20th Wilkinson, then Pulaski, splitting said lot 101&1/2 acres, witnesses Moses M. Smith & John Rowland.

Next record: Hatcher Vickers on 1820 Land Lottery resident of Baldwin Co. Marshall's District. He would have to be 18 to register for lottery and a resident three years prior to 15 Dec. 1818. He got Lot 47 in 15th

Hatcher Vickers got title to land in Irwin Co. 5 August 1824 but he was on petit jury in Irwin Co. 2 July 1821. On 16 Sept 1824 Hatcher Vickers sold the land in Irwin Co to Willis King. Wyle Vickers was witness to sale (Irwin Co. Deed Book 1, p. 130)
On 12 September 1826 Hatcher Vickers purchased 160 acres for $200+ in Gadsden County, Florida in Section 29, T3N, R2W, the SW1/4. He sold the land the same day of purchase to Thomas Speight. The land in

Note: Huxford on Wiley Vickers does not show a daugher Beady while Mr. Louis (Lewis ) Vickers does.
Note: R. A. Cookdied in 1960, Lewis Vickers died in 1955.
Husford's info that Wiley Vickers had brothers Jesse, Youngy and Hatcher and a sister named Kashire, does not mention Drew and Johny which Mr. Lewis Vickers mentions.
Proof that Jesse and Kashire (Kezziah) were brother and sister is found in
Proof that Wiley and Young (Youngie, Youngy) were brothers is found in Henry Co.,Al records when Youngie, s/o Wiley tries to secure a slave left to him by his Uncle Young who was deceased.
?Possibility? that the Johney Vickers Mr. Lewis Vickers mentioned in his letter to Mr. R. A. Cook was Joshua Vickers, called Johny by the family????

William Vickers, s/o Hatcher Vickers appears on 1850 Leon County, Fla Census, age 26 (b. 1824) in Elias Grantham's household. Elias Grantham's wife Susan was William's sister.
Hatcher Vickers had more daughters than Susan who m. Elias Grantham, as shown by the 1830 census. Fatama, Nancy and Fanna are mentioned inthe 1845 Ezekiel Vickers letter. It is not know who they were.
On 9-10-1835 Hatcher Vickers married Harriet Lewis in Jefferson Co., Fl , so it appears his wife, age 30/40 on 1830 census died between 1830 and 1835. If the wife who died betwen 1830 and 1835 was a first wife, she had 8 children by 1830. Her birth date ranges for 1791 to 1800 by 1830 census and 1795 to 1804 by 1820 Irwin Co., Ga census when she had 3 children. She is likely buried in an unmarked grave in a cemetery near, or at Magnolia (no longer in existence except for a few stones in the cemetery there), as Hatcher voted in Magnolia from 1828 to 1832.
