Hicks from Cocke Co. TN (1810+)
Posted by: Jamie Hicks Tiernan Date: February 27, 2000 at 21:26:35
  of 873

Hi,
I am trying to locate information on the parents of John Hicks b. 1810 TN (unknown Co. but suspected near Cocke Co. -- Yancey?) Originally our leads were working toward Abner Hicks of NC but my John Hicks did not mesh with John Buxton Hicks like we thought at first. So we are back to the drawing board (ahhhhh genealogy).

The descendant line shown below is pretty much a sure thing (did I just anger the gen-muse?) Everything below Anderson/Nancy is well known in my family.... I am their great grand-daughter. Anderson has been verified and his siblings linked by Census records.

Nancy's line has been found by Census records and cemetery records. She was born a Holder and had a first marriage to a Price. We have been able to track back the Holder line and locate most (although) not all of her children by Price - several died as young children).

So that brings me back to Anderson. We know that Anderson's father was definitely a John Hicks born sometime in 1810 in TN (this is where we had our earlier mess-up: a source was saying NC but that was wrong). We know that John Hicks definitely married a Serena Partin (we have her line - thanks Doris Parton!) in Cocke Co. sometime in 1834.

What I don't know and need to find out is - was John born in Cocke Co.? Who were his parents? Who were his siblings? Is he linked to the other early Hicks/Hix families in Cocke at the time or did he come from another nearby county? Where is he buried?

Is there anyone out there who can help? I would be so very grateful!
