HICKMAN, William, clergyman, born in King and Queen county, Virginia, 4 February, 1747; died in Kentucky in 1830. He was educated as an Episcopalian, but united with the Baptist church in 1773, was licensed to preach in 1776, after visiting Ken-tacky earlier in the year, where he preached the first sermon delivered in the new settlement. In 1784 he settled in Fayette county, Kentucky, and founded many churches in Kentucky.--His son, Paschal, soldier, killed at the battle of the River Raisin, 22 January, 1813, led a party of spies under General Wayne in 1794-'5, was captain of Kentucky volunteers under Colonel William Lewis in 1812, and was wounded in the action with the British and Indians at Frenchtown, and killed in the massacre that took place three days afterward. Hickman county, Kentucky, was named in his honor.
