JOHN BICKLEY, Weiland, near Cash, Hunt County, Texas (deceased) --Was born at Dungannon. Scott County, Virginia, Aug. 9, 1818. Was not in the regular army, but in 1862 was ordered out with the militia, but the company was disbanded. Was appointed Tax Assessor and served the Confederacy in other ways. Was always true to the traditions of the South and refused to take the Iron Clad Oath after the war, as he had been postmaster before the war, and was consequently disfranchised for a number of years.
(This record is given by his son, W. P. Buckley.)
