We have found another Hicks child: Fidelia ( Delia ) Hicks reportedly born in Lacolle, Quebec, Canada. Delia married William Stockdale, eventually settling in Worcester. Still seeking birth and marriage records from Lacolle, Quebec.
Now Searching for Birth and Marriage records in Lacolle, Quebec, Canada of Hicks family: Antoine Hicks b. 1800 in Canada, d. 1885 in Massachusetts. His wife, Angeline ( Bonenfant ) Hicks b.abt. 1810 in Canada, d. ( we think ) 1873, Ellenburg New York. The family were poor laborer/farmers, Antoine & Angeline were illiterate. We assume they must have traveled to Ellenburg New York where they settled, from just over the border. Any ideas on how to pinpoint their origins ? I have been through about fifty sets of parish records, the Northern New York Tombstone Transcription Project and am not having any luck with my Ancestry searches. Big, tall, brick wall. Any advice appreciated. : )
