William Edward "Eddie" Vickery was one of the many children of James A. and Caroline Elizabeth Scott Vickery. I don't know too much about him, but in the 1880's, he moved his family from Hartwell, GA, to Hodges, AL. Here they remained until his wife, Martha, died of tuberculosis. They then moved back to Hartwell about 1900 where Eddie remarried to his late wife's sister. My grandmother remembers seeing him picking fruit while on a visit to Alabama in his last years.
Interestingly, there is a grave recorded for him in Hodges as well as Hartwell. I understood that Hartwell was his burial place. Perhaps he was exhumed from one place and reburied in the other. Very interesting.
