From a catalog of students at New Spring Place, I.T. 1838-1842.In issue #8 & #9, Fall 1992 & Spring 1993 of Cherokee Family Researcher, page 18, it shows three of his children as students in 1840.At that time the family lived at Little Spavinaw, CN I.T. ***************** In Starr's Un-published Notes, pp 146-147; 1 Nathan Hicks 1-1 Chas R Hicks 1-2 Wm " +Sarah Foreman 1-3 Mary " +Vann +Holt 1-4 Elizabeth " +Scott 1-2-1 George Hicks (son of Chiuki) +Aky Rogers +Lucy Fields [The 1-2-1 for George Hicks depicts George as the son of William, 1-2] The Oothcaloga Mission Students list a George Hicks with Parent/Guardian of William Hicks, previously understood to be guardians due to Starr's book having listed George as the son of Charles Renatus; however, there is a child in the listing with Charles and Nancy as the parent/guardian and I would think it unlikely that William would be a guardian of just one of the children. Between Starr's notes, and the Mission Student listings I believe that George Hicks should be carried as the son of William Hicks as opposed to being the son of Charles Renatus Hicks as is printed in his book. George, as a son of William, is confirmed by the Moravian journal entry 02/16/1805 "...Sam Bigbee came and picked up George Hicks because his father, William Hicks, wants to take him home with him." And it's further confirmed in a letter written by William Hicks to the Cherokee Phoenix and Indians' Advocate, 7/8/1829, Vol II, No 14; "...As a brother of the Head Chief mentioned, and being one of the "whole of the Hicks family," stated to be in readiness to depart from this Nation to the West, I pronounce the above paragraph [refering to a quote from a previous article] in regard to me, my sons, George, Eli, Jay and William Hicks, to be a gross slander..."
