Notes for NANCY E BROOM:

Memorabilia of the Wachovia Congregations for the year 1821;

"The 14th of October was noteworthy there because in a reverent gathering the Indian Sr. Anna Felicitas Hicks, wife of Br. Charles Renatus Hicks, received holy baptism." [Anna Felicitas is the name given to Nancy Broom at her baptism]

Extract of a letter from Brother John Gambold, Missionary at Oochgeelogy, among the Cherokees Spring-Place, October 19, 1821;

"Most of my little flock came here with me, last Saturday, to be present at the Baptism of our Brother Charles Renatus Hick's wife, the first adult of this nation, whom Brother Schmidt has been favored to baptize. The powerful feeling of the presence of God on this occasion, encourages us to hope, that the Father, the Word and the Spirit bear record of this act in heaven. According to a wish, my late dear partner had sometimes expressed, to give her revered mother's name to an Indian Sister, this person was called Anna Felicia. So you see, the Holy Spirit is still continuing to draw souls to Jesus; the work goes on but slowly indeed, yet it is going on; and, what is particularly remarkable, the awakinging, we perceive, comprises chiefly mothers of families, on whom, according to Indian custom, rests the strength of the family, and whose influence on the children is nearly exclusive, as the father is hardly accounted a relative. The conversion of a mother is therefore of great moment, and, as far a human instrumentality is concerned, one of the best means for drawing in the children."
