Surnames: HICKEY
NOTE: County: Cape Breton
Qrytext: Rev. David Hickey, born 1843 at Indian River, PEI, was a Methodist minister. His wife was Annie Lockhart. He is believed to have served at a church in the North Sydney area. I do not know when he may have arrived, or how long he may have stayed in Cape Breton. He possibly went on to Yarmouth. By the early 1930's, he was at Barrington, NS. He died in Massachusetts in the late 1930's. One child of his was possibly a Frank W. Hickey born circa 1879 at North Sydney. He may have had at least two other children - D. Harold and Florence, birth-dates and places unknown. Florence had a child circa 1900, so she may have been born ca. 1875 or so. I would like to make contact with anyone who might have some information on this family. Or, I would appreciate any leads towards Methodist churches in the Sydney/North Sydney area where David Hickey might have served as minister.
