From the research of James R. Hicks: []

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."

Extract of a letter from Brother John Renatus Schmidt, Missionary at Spring-Place, Cherokee Nation, December 10, 1821;

"You have probably learnt before now, that I was favored, on the 14th of October, to baptize sister Nancy Hicks, wife of our brother Charles Renatus Hicks, under a lively sense of the gracious presence of our Lord..."


  • 1835 Census roll: Chickamauga Creek, GA as Nancy Hicks
  • Baptism: October 14, 1821, at Spring Place by Brother Schmidt as Anna Felicia
  • Blood: Full Blood Cherokee
  • Clan: Ani'-Wa'ya = Wolf Clan (Broom)

"Note: I have been in touch with a few more Nathan HICKS researchers and also a few in Cherokee Genealogy and History research and they agree that Nancy Broom was married to Nathan's son - Charles. Na'Ye'He (of the Wolf Clan) was Charles' mother and wife of Nathan Hicks, the Scots Trader. Many get Na'Ye'He' and Nancy Broom mixed up now and so did some early researchers. But, the old Clan Mothers and direct HICKS descendents know who is who. Many mistake Na'Ye'He' as Nancy and therefore mistakenly assume that Na'Ye'He' is Nancy Broom."

Nancy Elizabeth "Nannie" Brown - this links to a woman who actually seems to be Nancy BROOM, the well-documented wife of Chief Charles Renatus Hicks
