Benjamin Hickman
The following, regarding Benjamin Hickman and his family, was extracted from the book, History of Washington County, Pennsylvania with Biographical Sketches of Many of Its Pioneers and Prominent Men (Boyd Crumrine, editor):

     The family of Hickman  were early settlers in Allegheny County when it was yet a part of Washington County, but it was not until 1832 that any of them came to this county.  At that time Benjamin Hickman inherited a farm from his father which was in the limits of Cecil township, and on which his son John now resides.  Moses Hickman, also a son of Benjamin, bought the old Logan farm in 1865, and still resides there.
