I am the GGGGGrandson of Littleberry Hicks's Grandson Alexander (Littleberry, John, Alexander(Alec).
In my travels later this year I will be visiting Aenta Hickman County TN to see if there are any remains of the homesteads.
I discovered that there is an area North west of Aetna called Hicks Hollow and near that Mathis Hollow.
Both the Hicks family and Mathis family are connected but still to find out how.
Also a connection with the Garrett family in the same area John Hicks wife was Elizabeth Barnfield(Banfield) her sister Annie married Levi Garret as reported in the fathers will of the two woman he left them $5 from his estate.
Alexander left Tennessee when he was a teenager in 1850 at 16 years old to travel via California and then to Australia chasing Gold.
He stayed in Australia and had a large family which I am part of.
If anyone has any connection with Littleberry Hicks c1768 I would appreciate any news on what happened to the family after the Civil War.
I believe they went to Hawkins County and Washington County but still no luck.
