Notes
a. Note:   H342
Note:   In the Half breed 1-x $ 1-1x family groups Starr depicts Lydia Halfbreed and Charles Hick's as the parents of George Hicks. However, Starr's unpublished notes page 146 -147 and the entries for the Sprint Place Students lead me to believe that the spouse of Lydia Halfbreed also could have been listed as Charles's Brother William, and George as their son. This configuration is also supported by Miller application #7991 for Jennie Hicks nee Wilson who claims through her grand parents George and Lucy Hicks, her G-grandmother Lydia Chisholm [nee Halfbreed] and her great uncles and aunt's Ruth Beck, Anna French, Eli, William, Carrington, Charles and John Hicks all known children of William Hicks. Joined the Church of the United Brethren at Spring Place CNE, GA, and was baptised on Apr. 10 1813. At this time the missionaries conferred upon him the name of Renatus (Renewed) Charles Renatus Hicks. Cherokee Tragedy: The Ridge Family and the Decimation of a people, by Thurman Wilkins, University of Oklahoma Press, Morman and London: On his way home from Salem, Major Ridge stopped at Spring Place on January 22, 1827, and found the mission in mourning. During his absence the Cherokee had lost in quick succession their principal chiefs: the aged Pathkiller had died first and two weeks later Charles Hick's lay in a walnut coffin at Spring Place. Hicks had attended the council at New Echota the previous fall though badly ailing. On his way home he was forced to camp in the woods and taken cold from the dampness. He had gone to bed with Dropsical complaints and had never risen again. Major Ridge, on taking a last look at his friend, learned that he had died gently on January 20 as though he had mearly fallen asleep. The Ridge delivered an impressive exhortation at the funeral. Cherokee Tragedy: The Ridge Family and the Decimation of a People, by Thurman Wilkins, University of Oklahoma Press, Morman and London: Upon hearing of the death of Charles Hicks, one Cherokee said "The Cherokee will sell their land now, those who are left have their price." 1842 Cherokee Claims, Flint District IT, Claim #33, To Elijah, Betsey, Sarah, Jesse, Leonard, and Nancy, the heirs and widow of Charles R.
