About Mary Hicks

Thomas Hicks married, 2nd, on July 6/1676-7, Mary Doughty, born about 1658, died 1713, daughter of Elias and Sarah (---) Doughty of Flushing, L.I., and grand daughter of the Reverend Francis Doughty, see subject 534, and 1068. The Cornell Genealogy says Mary Doughty was the daughter of Thomas Doughty - this must be wrong.

     His will did not mention a wife, so she must have predeceased

him, nor does it mention his sons by his first wife. His children below are taken from his will, which lumped the sons first and the daughters after: hence the order below may not be correct.

Issue :- (by his second wife Mary Doughty, in the order of his will) 1/3. John Hicks. No data in Benjamin T. Hicks genealogy, but there is

  a will of John Hicks, dated Flushing November 12/1727, proved April
  28/1730, in which he mentions wife Ellinor and sons Robert, Ellis,
  William and Thomas, and brother in law Thomas Ellison. Could this be
  his will?   It would seem so, as John's sister Elizabeth (named
  Sarah by Werner), had a sister in law who married Thomas EIlison,
  see subject 264, page 3.

1/4. Joseph Hicks. No data in Benjamin D. Hicks genealogy. 1/5. Isaac Hicks. Bunker estimates his birth as 1678, and he died in

  1745, his will dated August 3/1745, proved September 30/1745. He was
  a judge of the Court of Common Pleas in 1723, and a member of the
  Assembly in 1716 and 1738. He married Elizabeth Moore, born about
  1693, daughter of Samuel and Mary (Reed) Moore, of Newtown, L.I.
  (This is from "William Henry Moore and his Ancestry", by L.
  Effingham De Forest, New York, 1934).

1/6. Benjamin Hicks. No data in Benjamin D. Hicks genealogy. 1/7. William Hicks. Bunker estimates his birth as about 1680. No data

  about him in Benjamin D. Hicks genealogy. Name of wife unknown.
  Issue:- (only the two below mentioned as his children in Benjamin D.
         Hicks genealogy - therefore may not be complete)
  2/1. Deborah Hicks. She married on July 5/1738, her cousin James
     Hicks, born 1722,  died January 14/1760, son of Isaac Hicks, see
     above.  They had two children.
  2/2. Mary Hicks, born about 1717, died December 20/1751. He married
     on October 13/1737, Samuel Rodman, born February 6/1715, died
     1780, son of Joseph and his first wife Sarah (Lawrence) Rodman of
     New Rochelle, N.Y. and had seven children. After Mary`s death,
     Samuel married, 2nd, Mary Pell, daughter of Caleb Pell.

1/8. Stephen Hicks. No data in Benjamin D. Hicks genealogy. 1/9. Phebe Hicks. Bunker estimates her birth as about 1672, though her

  parents were not married until 1676, and her death in 1732. Her
  father's will called her Phebe Simmons, a misspelling of Seaman.
  married in 1695, Samuel Seaman, born 1668, died 1732, son of John
  his Second wife Martha (Moore) Seaman, see subject 538, page 2.

1/10. Elizabeth Hicks, mentioned in her father's will, but no further

   data and therefore probably died young.

1/11. Charity Hicks. Benjamin D. Hicks genealogy says she was not

   married.  The Cornell genealogy says she was born in 1674, (this is
   two years before her parents married), and that her will was dated
   March 1762, proved February 14/1767, and that she married, as his
   second wife, on December 20/1712, (when she was about 45 years
   Thomas Cornell, born 1675, died 1719, son of Richard and Elizabeth
   (---) Cornell.

1/12. Mary Hicks. Her father's will called her Mary Bushlar, a

   mispelling of the name Rushmore: the will also mentioned Mary's
   daughter Sarah Everitt. She married Jacob Rushmore, son of Thomas
   and his second wife Mary (Doughty) Rushmore. See subject 264 for
   their issue and further particulars.

1/13. Sarah Hicks. Her father's will mentioned no daughter Sarah, nor

   does Benjamin D. Hicks genealogy give her as a daughter. However,
   some genealogies state Sarah was a daughter, and that she married
   Thomas Rushmore, born about 1650, died before 1733, son of Thomas
   and his first wife Martha (Hicks), Rushmore, see subject 264.  I
   cannot find any proof that Sarah was a daughter of Thomas Hicks.
