I am looking for any info on Lorenzo Hicks, father of Lewis G. Hicks. He would be my 3x great grandfather. Any info would greatly be appreciated. Thank you.

Lorenzo's parents were John Hicks and Rebecca Wade of Wythe
county Va, married in Blount Co Tenn.
My line is Lorenzo, Edward, Charles, Arleen.
Farther back is conjecture, possibly Richard Hicks and
Jane Skaggs of Kanawha.

Hope you are still reading these posts ... I am a novice and just discovered them. Lorenzo Dow Hicks was my great-grandfather, married to Lucinda (some say Wisely but not sure). I have been looking forever for info on his granddaugter, Emeline Minerva who he and Lucinda raised. She was the daughter of Mary Jane, their daughter, but as far as I know went by the name of Hicks.She was my grandmother but died in around 1912 or somewhere around there. If you have received any info, I'd really love to share it. Thanks.

Lorenzo D Hicks of Wythe co Va was the son of John Hicks and Rebecca Wade, married in Blount Tenn in 1816. They lived later in Wythe, then Lorenzo married Lucinda Wisely and moved to Tazewell/Bland, and finally in Mercer WV where Lorenzo died in 1861. Lucinda lived there the rest of her life. There was another Lorenzo D, not related, in NC/Tenn area. Name similarity was from a traveling preacher Lorenzo Dow who had many boys of different families named for him.
from Larry Surface.

Was very happy to get this info. Thanks. Have you by chance seen the marriage certificate? Was always told that Lucinda was a Wise not Wisely .. was also told that she was an Indian child adopted by the Wise/Wisely family as they travelled through Mercer Co., WV near Spanishburg. How are you related? nhstewart@suddenlink.net..

Hi Barbara, I still have all the info that I got from you on the Hicks but still haven't been able to find out anything about Lucinda so that is why I was posting. Neither have I been able to find out anything about my grandmother Emmeline Minerva, other than she was raised by Lorenzo and Lucinda. She supposedly was a child of Mary Jane, their daughter ... This summer I am going to the cemetery where many of the Hicks are buried to see if I can find her grave. Thanks for responding.
