Samuel Vickers and Hannah Lowe, North Carolina to Barren Co. Kentucky


Researched by Allen and Alice Jeanette Cox and contributed by Lucy Vickers Grisham

Note***This entire Family History was sent to me by Allen Cox of Birmingham, Alabama back in 1977 and is the ancestry of his wife, Alice Jeanette Gilbreath, b 1927 in Birmingham.  Therefore since he did all the work, I am submitting this in his name. I do not know if they are living, but we corresponded for a long time. This Samuel Vickers may have been the one who witnessed will of John Vickers in Edgecombe. I am not sure, but he referred to Edgecombe Co., NC deeds.
