The Hickman County Public Library

 The Hickman County Public Library will do certain research inquiries for the fee of $5.00 per surname.  This includes ten copies.  Additional copies will cost 15 cents each.  We will check the following Hickman County records in print form:

  • Hickman County History
  • Hickman County Cemetery Records
  • Census Records for 1850, 1860, 1870
  • Marriage Records 1865 to 1907
  • Individual Family Histories in our collection
We cannot search microfilm records due to the amount of time it takes.  Unfortunately, the Hickman County Courthouse burned in 1864, so records from previous years are scarce.
