Death: 22 MAR 1755 in Long Island, New York 1 Note: There is an April 10, 1738 muster roll of 'Captain Jacob Hicks Company ' of Hempstead. 2 Birth: ABT 1665 3 Birth: JUN 1669 in Hempstead, Nassau Co., New York 1 Religion: Jacob was impressed by the earnestness of the Friends but was a staunch member of St. George's Eposcopal Church at Hempstead. Thomas Chalkey , a powerful intinerant Quaker minister, lodged with him on two visits in the neighborhood but Jacob did not become a Quaker although he did open his home to the Friends for their monthly worship. The lingering emotionalism so strongly displayed by the sect in the previous generation disturbed him. 4
