(Hicks), Elizabeth

Birth Name (Hicks), Elizabeth
Gender female
Age at Death about 50 years


not found in Census after 1840. Could have remarried? Andrew Ferrell, Benjamin Flatt both unmarried in 1840.

Because of frequent intermarriages in this group and shared given names, Elizabeth could be a Forkum, Huffines, or Smith. We believe she arrived with William Huffines and Peggy Smith from Washington Co, TN in the 1820's.

Curiously, the frequently given name "Ellis" in Jackson Co, TN all have Huffines in their ancestry.


Event Date Place Description Sources
Birth about 1790 North Carolina, USA    
Event Note

40-50 in 1830 and 40-50 in 1840 means she had to be born 1790

Death between 1840 and 1850 Jackson, TN    


Family of Hicks, John? Jr and (Hicks), Elizabeth

Married Husband Hicks, John? Jr ( * about 1790 + between 1825 and 1830 )

This family is speculative based on the census. father died before 1830 and Elizabeth had daughters of ages that could have included Nancy. Temperance Hicks is head of household in 1840 and still has several daughters living at home, but 2 of Elizabeth's daughters have left:

Elizabeth Hicks
1830: 3m5-10 1m10-15 f10-15 2f15-20 1f40-50
1840: 3m15-20 f20-30 f40-50

Note numerous trees on ancestry.com claiming to know who Elizabeth married are incorrect.

I've added Lewis to the family because he was born in NC about the same time and Nancy Hicks named a son Lewis. Biography about Lewis Hicks (or Lewis Hix) says he moved with parents and family from NC to Jackson Co, TN about 1816.

Note Abraham born in TN before John born in NC is unlikely, so John prob born earlier.
