Dear Kimberly. Burt Holtsclaw b about 1850 and his Wife Lizzie Winters (dau of Clark Winters) were the grandparents of my Grandmother, Jane Eliza Julian Moore (b 9/.20./1892). Jane Eliza Julian Moore was born in Carter Co, TN and was the dau of Charles Monroe Julian (Jan l3, l869) and Mary Maland(? Spelling) Holtsclaw (2/24/1875 in Elk Park, NC). My Grandmother told me that Burt Holtsclaw was "burned up" in a house in AZ or Colorado. She said he "broke" horses.

Anyone with more information please inform me at Thank you, Janice

I do have both Hotsclaw and Hicks in my files.

Here is all I have to offer on the names that you posted:

My family's line is with John Elbert Holtsclaw and Elizabeth Winters. John Elberts Holtsclaw's father was Rufus Holtsclaw and his mother was Levissa Melissa "Vice" McClurd.

Rufus and Vice had the following children:

1-John Elbert Holtsclaw (my line)
2-David Holtsclaw born 10/10/1853 died 1/20/1886
3-Sarah Lorraine Holtsclaw (this is where the Hicks name comes in...see more below) born 8/13/1854
4-William Holtsclaw
5-James Holtsclaw
6-Frances Holtsclaw
7-Isasc F. Holtsclaw born 1/5/1864
8-Henry P. Holtsclaw born 1868

Rufus also married Ann Guin.
They had the following child:
Daniel Holtsclaw.

More on my line of Holtsclaw:

John Elbert Holtsclaw married Elizabeth Harretta Winters. They had the following children:

1-Rosa Ellen Holtsclaw born 2/8/1894
2-William David Holtsclaw born ?
3-John Clingman Holtsclaw born ?
4-Isacc Martin Holtsclaw born ?
5-Mary Holtsclaw born ? married Julian (don't know last name).
6-Ida Holtsclaw born ? married someone w/ last name Bice.
7-Martha Carolina Holtsclaw born ? married John Lenorad Perkins.
8-Marticia Holtsclaw born ? married someone w/ last name of Oaks.
9-Lillie Jane Holtsclaw born ? married someone w/ last name of Tuberfield.

(Here's the part you are interested in...The Hick's name):

Sarah Lorraine Holtsclaw born 8/13/1854 in Elk Park, Avery County, North Carolina. She died in Colorado.
Sarah married Stephen Anderson Hicks. Stephen was born on 10/25/1853. He died on 3/23/1922 in Antonito, Colorado.

They had the following children:
1-Martha Alice Hicks born 12/7/1875.
Martha married Thomas Kearns.

2-Josie Caroline Hicks born 5/16/1877.
Josie was married twice. The first time was to William T. Beals. The second time was to John T. W. Winters.

3-John Isaac Hicks born 5/2/1879.

4-William David Hicks born 3/27/1881.

5-Stephen Anderson Hicks, Jr. born 6/29/1883.

6-Rosey Hicks born 12/29/1885.

7-Maggie May Hicks born 8/31/1889 in Manassa, Colorado.
Maggie married William Militon Darnall.

8-Irene Hicks born 12/9/1890.

9-Maudie Hicks born 9/18/1892 in Fox Creek, Colorado.

10-Wheeler Hicks born 4/2/1897 in Manassa, Colorado.

I don't have a Joe Hicks in my files at all. However, could Joe be short for something else? I do have a Mary married to someone with the last "Julian" or it could be a first name. I'm unsure because most of the information that I got came out of a very old family Bible. The Bible belonged to my husbands great grandmother and it is now in the possession of my husbands great uncle.
