I am Gracie Hicks (Maiden Name) Boswell. I am the granddaughter of Benjamin Hicks' son, Whit Hicks, which makes me Benjamin Hicks' great granddaughter. My father was his grandson, Leander Hicks, Sr. I too am searching the family and am stalled at Benjamin's parents, Lottie and Solomon. I am interested in connecting with both the Nottoway Indian and White ancestry connection, so that I may move further through slavery to the other side, wherever that leads. I just finished reading The Peanut Story by Frank Roy Johnson, which was published in 1964.
