Kay, Thanks for the response to my query. As you can see from my query my line stops with William M. Hicks born 1804 in Virginia. There was a group of Hicks that came to Hickman County Tennessee about 1812 and they are said to have decended from a Robert Hicks and Esther Lutton in the 1700 time frame. Most of this group left Tennessee and went to Illinois where their descendents remain today. I have posted their line on my site (Jim Hicks) on ancestry,com. Sorry I cannot be of more help.
