      Date: Monday, March 22, 1999 2:05 PM

      Helen,

      I don't have a direct HICKS line but I have two collateral lines that intermarried with two distinct HICKS families. Because Meshack is not a very common name, I suspect that the Meshac (this is the spelling I found) HICKS in Warren Co., TN is related to the earlier Meshack HICKS of Goochland Co., Virginia who married into my MORELAND family there.

      I have a Thomas SIMPSON who married Nancy MORELAND Warren Co., TN in 1817.

      The bride was related to:

      1. Meshack1 Hicks was born ca. 1738 (Source: This family group from LDS archive record (undocumented).), and died 21 August 1816 in Goochland Co., VA.

      Children of Meshack Hicks are:

      2 i. Meshack2 Hicks, born ca. 1764. He married Elizabeth Moreland 17 June 1787 in Goochland Co., VA.

      Notes for Meshack Hicks:

      Wayne County, Kentucky Deed Book B, page 279 dated 16 Dec. 1815, recorded 14 Feb. 1816, Indenture John Jones and Peggy his wife to George Berry, 200 lbs for 250 acres on waters of Cumberland River, Meshac Hicks line, John McCarmey's line. John Jones, Peggy Jones (relinquished dower rights).

      Warren County, Tennessee Plat Records Volume 3 page 73, Entry No. 3735 dated 23 Jan. 1834 surveyed for John Hix 13 acres on the waters of Mountain Creek, SE corner of a 73 acre entry in the name of Meshac Hix, Wm. Mullican's line, Harper's line, NE corner of the survey whereon he now lives. Surveyed 30 October 1835. Martin Ride and Henry Allen, SCC. J.B. Perkins, DS Nov. 2, 1835.

      Ibid, page 250. Entry No. 3656 dated 1 June 1833 surveyed for John Hix and William Mullican 150 acres on the waters of and on north side of Mountain Creek, NW corner of a 73 acre survey owned by Meshac Hix, Dan'l Hill's corner, W.D. Green's line, Duff's line. Surveyed 14 June 1834. John Hix and Sam'l Hix, CC. Including and platting out 50 acres of older title granted to Wm. Mullican. J.B. Perkins, D.s. Nov. 20, 1837.


      3 ii. John Hicks, born ca. 1766 in Goochland Co., VA.
      4 iii. Iris Hicks, born ca. 1767 in Goochland Co., VA.
      5 iv. Sally Hicks, born ca. 1768 in Goochland Co., VA.
      6 v. Nancy Hicks, born ca. 1770 in Goochland Co., VA. She married Bucker Carroll 26 December 1791 in Goochland Co., VA.
      7 vi. Mary Hicks, born ca. 1772 in Goochland Co., VA; died 7 May 1847. She married Thomas Bernard 28 December 1792 in Goochland Co., VA.
      8 vii. Susanna Hicks, born ca. 1783 in Goochland Co., VA. She married Richard Taylor 30 January 1804 in Goochland Co., VA.
      9 viii. Cary Hicks, born ca. 1785 in Goochland Co., VA.
      10 ix. Patsy Hicks, born ca. 1787 in Goochland Co., VA.
      11 x. Lucy Hicks, born ca. 1795 in Goochland Co., VA. She married Fielding Brooks 12 February 1816 in Goochland Co., VA.
      12 xi. Eliza Hicks, born ca. 1797 in Goochland Co., VA.

      ________________________________________________________________________

      The groom, Thomas SIMPSON was related to the other HICKS family in Guilford Co., NC:

      1. Willis1 Hicks was born Bef. 1748. He married Eleanor Simpson Bef. 1784, daughter of Richard Simpson and Elizabeth Unknown.

      Notes for Willis Hicks:

      The Simpson Clan, Vol. 1 #6 p. 4 article by Don Simpson, "Guilford Co., North Carolina Deed Book B, p. 82, State of North Carolina to Willis Hicks .. . 100 acres on waters of Reedy Fork . . . beginning at Samuel Maxwell's corner. . . etc. dated 13 Nov. 1779. Deed Book C, p. 159 has Willis Hicks to William Blisset. . . 100 acres. . . on waters of Reedy Fork. . . . a tract of land granted to said Willis Hicks by the said state . . . beginning at Samuel Maxwell's corner. . . Jesse Parker's corner. . . from the said Willis Hicks or his wife Elaner . . . etc.

      dated 9 March 1784.

      Signed Willis Hicks,

      Elaner Hicks; witnessed by Robert Russell, John Hogen and Walter Hill.


      Children of Willis Hicks and Eleanor Simpson are:
      2 i. Richard2 Hicks.
      3 ii. Henry Hicks, born ca. 1769 in NC; died Aft. 1850 in prob. Henry Co.,
      MO. He married Polly Unknown.
      4 iii. Absalom Hicks, born ca. 1774 in NC; died ca. 1824 in Boone Co., MO.
      + 5 iv. Willis Hicks, born ca. 1777 in NC; died 1812 in Christian Co., KY.
      6 v. James Hicks, born ca. 1779 in NC.
      7 vi. Elizabeth Reese Hicks.


      Generation No. 2

      5. Willis2 Hicks (Willis1) was born ca. 1777 in NC, and died 1812 in Christian Co., KY. He married Eleanor Karr Bef. 1796.


      Children of Willis Hicks and Eleanor Karr are:

      8 i. Karr3 Hicks, born Bef. 1791.
      9 ii. Josiah Hicks, born Bef. 1791.
      10 iii. Willis Hicks, born Bef. 1791.
      11 iv. McCay Hicks, born Bef. 1791.
      12 v. Hamlin Hicks, born Bef. 1791.
      13 vi. John Hicks, born Bef. 1791.
      14 vii. Robert Hicks, born Bef. 1791.

      I don't know how or if the various HICKS families in Warren Co., TN might be related to one another, but I think Meshac HICKS might be related to the one of Goochland Co., Virginia. -Nona

      >Dear Nona: We saw your question about the Hicks. We have Hicks in Warren Co. early 1800's. We have William Hicks who was born about 1793 in NC or VA who married Sarah Magness, daughter of George Magness and Polly Durham.

      We have a list of their children we would be happy to share. We have not been able to connect William to any of the Hicks in early Warren Co. I have seen such names as Stephen, Thomas, Archibald, and an older and younger Meshack. Do you know anything about any of them?

      >> Shirley,
      >> I'm not a professional researcher, but I've abstracted and published 4 volumes of Warren County plat records and am currently working on Warren County grants. All these records date from 1824. Other people are working on earlier grants in the area and Betty Majors plans to abstract more deeds.

      >> I cannot honor all requests to look up records, but when I have time I respond to questions posted to the list about land records.
      >>
      >> I'm interested in the Hicks families in early Warren Co., TN. If you discover the father of your Martha Hicks please let me know. -Nona
