I have an Great x2 Uncle George Montague Hicks born in Illinois in 1835. He was in the 96th Illinois Infantry during the Civil War. He started with the rank of Captain and mustered out as a Colonel. My Great x2 Grandparents were his sister, Marie Abigail Hicks, and Thomas Oughton a lawyer from Kingston, Jamaica. George lived for a time in Galena, Illinois before the war. He moved to Kingston in 1870 to be near his sister. He was a school superintendent. I do not know if he married. I just confirmed which Col. Hicks from Illinois he was.

Default Col Hicks

Karen, Col Hicks of the 96th ILL and Inspector of Schools in Jamaica was my great grandfather. Col Hicks married Suzette Walder (Swiss Moravian missionary) and had 1 son (George W. Oughton Hicks) and 2 daughters (one died as a teenager in a flu epidemic while at Pickering College outside Toronto, ON). My grandfather Rev Hicks served as a stretcher bearer & chaplain in WWI with Canadian forces, then with the Presbyterian Church (later United Church) in Jamaica and Cayman Islands. My father George Kenneth Hicks lives in Runaway Bay, JA. Rev Hicks' youngest sister had 4 granddaughters who live in the US.

I would be interested in hearing from you. I live in Toronto and my email is jenny.hicks@fmc-law.com
