  • Notes 
    • John Wilmer Hicks was born near Richmond, Virginia June 1 1848.

      He Enlisted in the service during the Civil War when he was 15 years old, taking his fathers place. He served for two years with a Virginia outfit under General Lee and took part in many battles of the war.

      He came to Missouri with his parents in 1868.He received his education in a log school house and had always lived on a farm.

      On March 21, 1869, he married Mattie Nora Hughes of Randolph, Missouri, at the residence of Robert Turner (her stepfather) by Elder James Bradley. Mattie was born October 14, 1848 near Thomas Hill and was the only child of Fleming and Mary A (Hicks) Hughes. Fleming and Mary A were married December 28, 1847. Fleming was born in Virginia and was among the earliest settlers of Chariton County, Missouri. He was a painter and a decorator by trade and lived at Glasgow untill after his marriage to Mary. Mattie's father died around 1848/1849 and is buried in Brunswick City Cemetery at Brunswick, Missouri (I was told, but I looked through that whole cemetery and found no headstone for him, nor any record at the city hall). Mary later married Robert M Turner and they had ten children together.

      After eight years of renting land, John bought a farm in Musselfork township. He raised shorthorn cattle, Poland China hogs, horses and mules. Mattie raised white leghorn chickens.

      John died March 8, 1927 at his home (where he had lived for 50 years) in Chariton County, Missouri at the age of 78. Mattie died June 29, 1929 at the home of a nephew, Will Turner, near Prairie Hill, Missouri.
