4. Wiley Hicks, abt 1819; m. a Nancy (?); they had at least the following children: James A. Hicks (b. about 1843); Sarah A.E. Hicks (b. abt 1845); Jacob Hicks (b. abt 1847); and Shelby F.

This family seems to have moved from Wayne Co., KY to Washington, Cedar County, Missouri between the 1850 and 1860 federal census.

5. Champion T. Hicks, b. 1821; d. abt 1891, and on 23 Dec 1841 he married Rebecca Emily Shearer (daughter of Daniel Shearer and Margaret Vickery). Champion and Rebecca (Shearer) Hicks had the following children: Margaret Hicks (b. 1843); Sarah Caroline Hicks (b. 1850- ); ?Mary Hicks (b. 1853); Emarine Hicks (b. 1855); Shelby Hicks (b. 1857); Helen Hicks (b. 1858); Amanda "Manda" Hicks (b. 1861); Virginia Hicks (b. 1861); Lexi Hicks (b. 1867); Marshall J. Hicks (b. abt 1871). NOTE: the daughter Sarah Caroline Hicks married John Bertram, and they are the parents of Lula Bertram who married Isaac Denton Hicks, who was the son of William W. Hicks and Abigail Littrell- see below. I am not 100% sure that Champion was a child of Jacob and Laticia - however, I am including this because I have found him with those parents in at least a couple of public family trees and the time/area works. This is not documented, though.

6. Leticia Hicks, b. 27 Nov 1825; d. 7 Mar 1879; m. Isaac Newton Huffaker (1812-1888) and they had the following children: Tobias Huffaker (b. abt 1855); Elias Huffaker (b. abt 1857);
