My family of Kicks came from Hessen-Darmstadt, Germany in 1840 or so. It was Warner Kick and his brother or cousin Hartmann Kick who came over. My great-grandmother Katie Kick and her brother Ferdinand Kick came over direct from germany. They were Jewish and they went straight to New Orleans, LA Katie Kick married Forbes Isaac Kidd in New Orleans and they both spent the rest of their lives there. They are buried in Greenwood Cemetery in New Orleans,LA with most of their children. If you have any KICK ancestors in the Hesse Province in Germany and teh city of Darmstadt,please let me know because we will be related.
