H Surnames

Would anyone in Hickman County like to know what happened to the son of the gentleman for whom the county was named? The son was Edwin Hickman. He was the Mayor of Memphis when my great-great grandfather, Dr. Mark Brown Sappington, died in 1852. Edwin being a very good friend (and cousin) accompanied the widow of the doctor and seven daughters to San Antonio that same year. The doctor's brother and wife were in residence there. It seems there were two Sappington brothers who married two sisters. Edwin never returned to Tennessee. He is buried in my family's plot at San Antonio.
