You are so nice to send me that!! Thank you so much. I just went to your website. Do you really want what I have for the descendants of James L. Hicks? I have quite a bit. I also think James L. Hicks was the James L. Hickes in the 1860 census of Henderson, working as a bartender. Sarah supposedly died in 1859, although she does not turn up in the 1860 mortality schedule. And James supposedly died in 1863. This came from his grandson in Tennessee, and I guess it was told to him by his great-grandmother or great-aunts who raised the children. They were spread out among the various families in Dyersburg and the largest branch of them settled in nearby Brownsville, TN. So let me know what you want.

I also used to correspond with a woman who was married to Richard Priest Hicks and lived in Pickens, SC. She is no longer living there and is only about in her 70's. She has file drawers full of Hicks info and sent me a document made up of over 30 pieces of paper taped together to make a big scroll, written on both sides, of the descendants of Amos Hix. I typed it up recently, not in a family tree program, just to have it in a more searchable format. Do you want that?

I have other Hicks lines, too, in Henderson Co. Some from James L.'s brother Nathaniel M. Hicks, who mysteriously disappeared during the civil war.

Thanks again for writing!
