I don't have a Joe Hicks in my files at all. However, could Joe be short for something else? I do have a Mary married to someone with the last "Julian" or it could be a first name. I'm unsure because most of the information that I got came out of a very old family Bible. The Bible belonged to my husbands great grandmother and it is now in the possession of my husbands great uncle.
