I am from along line of Va. & W.Va. Hicks
William Hicks & Hannah Jarrett pioneer settlers from Greenbrier & kanawha counties of present day W.Va. are my 4th great grandparents. Hannah was the daughter of David Jarrett & his 1st wife Jane. Her father David married her husband William Hicks sister Susannah Hicks as his 2nd wife..
I believe that Jesse Hicks/Hix of Bedford Co Va. & Breckinridge Co. Ky is perhaps a 1st cousin to my William Hicks of Greenbrier & kanawha counties.
Then toss in the Jarrett's and it's nothing short of amazing. The Jarrett family is a large one.
