Hickman County Wills, Estates, Deeds

Hickman County

The site where General Polk fortified a site along the Mississippi River against the Union forces during the War Between the States. For this reason the site was called the Gibralter of the West. Hickman County was founded in 1822 and named after Captain Paschal Hickman of the 1st Rifle Regiment, Kentucky Militia. While he was a resident of Franklin County, Kentucky he was wounded and captured at the Battle of Frenchtown in January of 1813 and killed by Indians in the Massacre of the River Raison. The first county seat was Columbus, Kentucky where a court house was built in 1823. In 1830 the county seat was removed to Clinton, Kentucky.
