About Our Family Research

McCracken, Hicks, Skelton, Hicks, Barrett, Meek, Crawford, Skelton, Simpson, Craddock/Cradic, Ward, Arnold, Hartman, Buchanan, Polk, Keyes.
I am researching these and many more surnames, found in East Tennessee, North Carolina, Virginia and north Georgia history.
Most are of Scot/Irish and of Native American descent.
FREE GENEALOGY should be afforded to all of us, after all, they are our ancestors. I realize that there are often charges, etc, from many State Agencies and I understand. However, so many times the prices are for profit only.
It is with this in mind that I have recorded my research and all those who have assisted and contributed to the archives. It has taken a multitude of people and thousands of hours of work and much sharing to get thus far. The following publications are available for THE COST OF PUBLICATION. IT IS TOTALLY NON-PROFIT.

Much history has been written about these Hicks ancestors and in this Volume of Echoes it is all organized and easy to read.

Credit to include; Dr. Mel Meek, Danny Fluhart, Archives of Virginia.
