Descendants of Joshua HICKS (ca 1765 - 1848)

of Surry Co, NC and Clermont Co, OH


Joshua HICKS moved with his family to Clermont Co, OH about 1805. Many of his descendants remain in that area nine generations later. Others have scattered throughout the country. The children of Joshua and Diana (Adams) Hicks married into the families of UTTER, TATMAN, MELVIN, HOPKINS, ROBINSON, JOHNSTON, WHETSTONE, BAXTER, NEWKIRK, and MORGAN.

Joshua, born about 1765 [birthplace unknown], was probably the son of Samuel HICKS. A number of probably related Hicks lived in Surry Co, NC from about 1791 onwards. The probable siblings (based on land and marriage records of Surry Co) of Joshua Hicks were:

Orville Jones, one of the descendants remaining in Clermont Co, OH, spent much of his life gathering information on the HICKS family. At the time of his death in 1996, he had assembled a manuscript containing almost 800 families. My goal with this page is to contact more descendants of the family in order to update and publish his manuscript in book form. If you have any knowledge of this family, I'd appreciate hearing from you.  Many members of this family have been long lived, so I have published this only through the sixth generation, so as not to infringe on the privacy of any family member.  My records continue through nine generations, which I will share on an individual basis.
