  • Name William Huckaby 
    Birth 1780  North Carolina, United States Find all individuals with events at this location  [1
    • It is interesting that William and Elizabeth are listed as born in NC rather than SC. Most of the Huckabys and allied families seem to have come from SC. Not sure about Robert, the presumed father of William.
    Gender Male 
    Census 1840  Pickens, Alabama, United States Find all individuals with events at this location  [2
    • Enumeration:
      Free White Male 10-14: 1
      Free White Male 15-19: 1
      Free White Male 60-69: 1
      Free White Female 15-19: 1
      Free White Female 50-59: 1
      Slaves Male < 10: 3
      Slaves Male 10-23: 1
      Slaves Female < 10: 1
      Slaves Female 10-23: 1

      William is enumerated as William Huckaby Sen, just a few lines down from William Huckaby. There is also another William S Huckaby in the county (as wel as Wade Huckaby).

      This indictes that he was born between 1770-1780, so the 1780 from the 1850 Census is reasonable. However, having children who are only 10-15 years old seems unlikely.
    Census 25 Oct 1850  Pickens, Alabama, United States Find all individuals with events at this location  [1
    • Census lists him as 70 years old, born in NC, owning $400 of real estate.

      But an age of 57 calls into question William B. Huckaby as a son since he is enumerated as 57 years old in that same census. If he is a son, I would have expected an age around perhaps 47 instead of 57.

  • Notes 
    • In William's estate, it lists his heirs. Generally, when the heirs are grandchildren, it lists the parent so that the shares match. But given there are 30 years between the oldest and youngest children, could the younger ones actually be grandchildren? Is there a possible reading of either William's or Elizabeth's estate that could hint at this?

      It appears that there may be another son, Anderson, who died before William but left no surviving spouse or children.
