Delila Hicks married John Hanks and had 3 children in the 1830's. Isaac Jenning, Abraham Davidson, and Lucy Elizabeth. John must have died and the 2 boys were sent to live with relatives (Americus Hicks, and Robert Faulkner) Delila married Dempsey Pace in Lincoln, Co. Tn. and then I find her & Lucy E living with John Stinnet in Davidson Co, Tn.( In 1850) Right next door is Dickson county, Tn and I have found some Hicks living there. Lucy gets married to Mahagel Harward in 1857 in Dickson Co. I cannot find any Hanks' in that county at that time, so she must keep in contact with the Hicks families. We are Cherokee Indian and related to Abe Lincoln. Its from the Hicks side and I seen that Elijah & George Hicks were Group Leaders to Oklahoma in 1838 & 1839. I read where some of the Cherokees "hid" out to keep from going. Does anyone know of any Hicks families that lived in Middle Tennessee that are Cherokees? This is my brick wall and I would like to find the Cherokee Indian line in my family. Anything w/b appreciated very much!!
