i am looking for more info on my hicks side. it appears that ester hicks; b 1 apr.1862 in rockbridge county,va. had 10 children. one alfphonso hicks is supposed to have married a branhan. not sure whicih one. ester is my great-aunt and is buried in the moncan burial ground in elon,amherst county,va. what i don't understand is that in the 1900 census it lists her and the kids as black. was indian and the census takers made a mistake. i saw a pic of her with her son and she was not black. i am also looking for my great-grandmother,maggie who is ester's sister. ester lived out her married life in amherst county,va. she died in 1941.her mother and father lawrence hicks and paulina or pauline robertson. they were both born in 1820 in rockbridge county.they had 10 children.the thing i want to find out is were they indians or what? they do fall under two family lines, the wright family and the lawyer family. any help would be greatly accepted. thank you. respectfully,anne
