for a good friend in Italy I am researching a Louisa Matilda Lawrence Hicks, b: 8 OCT 1797, d: BEF. 28 SEP 1859, ID: I01412 in the rootsweb.ancestry.com system [Frederick Philipse Family Tree] who married (28 APR 1816) John Charlton Clarkson (b: 21 NOV 1791: he was the first of his family who came to Potsdam from New York as an attorney and Land Agent for the Proprietors in 1818). According to the database Louisa Matilda was daughter of a Thomas B. Hicks (spouse unknown), ID: I01557.
Could this be the Thomas Hicks, ID: I12082 in your Hicks/Hix Database (HICK842 in the Outline Descent of the Hicks family)? I see a Sarah Lawrence was his sister in law and this could explain Louisa Matilda’s middle name? I don’t seem to be able to find a proper fit anywhere: would be grateful for any suggestion!
