I have a copy of the marriage license of Frederick Womelsdorff and Julia
Ann Hicks. It clearly states that her father is Stephen Hicks and his mother
is Walton. It does not show her first name. They were in McKee Township,
Adams Co, IL. One part of the document has her to be 19 while the backside says
17. They were married in her parents home. The ministers name was Joseph
Dierdorff. Date of marriage: 4/10/1879

I just found some information on Bessie Mae Bugh (Hicks). She was the
daughter of John Wesley Hicks and Lula T. Riker. Bessie was born

Here is the latest on my Bessie Mae Hicks.
Bessie was born 12/17/1910 in Clark Co., WA. She was the daughter of
John Wesley Hicks and Lula Riker. She was married, we believe, two
times. Her first marriage, we believe, that she had a son. Her second
marriage was to Arthur Bugh. I do not as yet have that date. Arthur and
Bessie raised Ernie Hagen. He is believed to be that grandson of Bessie.
On the papers of the cremation arrangements for Arthur Bugh, Ernie is
listed as the grandson. In talking to Bugh relatives, he was not related
to the Bugh family but believed to be related to Bessie. Ernie's parents
were killed in a train wreck when he was a baby. He survived. Arthur
died 6/27/2000. :( I am trying to find Ernie. I have put in a call to
the funeral home that made the arrangements for Arthur to see if they
can help in my quest. Here is a copy of an email I received from a
wonderful person in California.

Ben Hicks, in later years operated a small truck garden in Payson and sold to specialized market and restruants as far away as Quincy and Hanibal. I have several pictures of him and I can scan them but never been able how to email them. He was also an itinerant preacher of the gospel. I'm having trouble getting all of my family history into my new computer. Had old one worked on last year and their messing with it wiped out some of my files. Am trying to sort thru a lot of old flloppies to see what I'd backed up that wasn't in my genealogical program Family Origins. I was 9 years old in 1936 the last time I saw my great grandmother Augusta Holmes Hicks in Payson. She died in 1941. Ben died 4 months before I was born. I intend to visit the Quincy area in June to visit a couple 1st cousins and do more research. Ben, Augusta and their daughter, my grandmother Lillie Julia Hicks Castle are all buried in unmarked graves in Payson. The cemetery records have been lost. My mother said they were buried by the back fence when we visited in 1945 but the fence has since been moved to enlarge the cemetery. My cousin said she remembered about where it was a few years ago, but she hadn't been there in 25 years. If I had a time machine I wouldn't want to know the future but I'd sure like to go back, this time I'd listen to what the old folks talked about when they got together instead of going out to play. I grew up in South Dakota and very seldom saw many relatives. What I know is what I've been able to find out since what my mother told me just before she died, and she got some of it wrong.

Benjamin Franklin Hicks was born 24 February 1859 in Burton Township, Adams county, Illinois. He was a Methodist Lay Circuit Rider Preacher, commercial fisherman on the Mississippi River and a commercial vegatable gardener. Ben and Augusta Ellen Holmes obtained their marraige license on 5 October 1880 at the court house in Palmyra, Marion county, Missouri, across the Mississippi River from Adams county,Illinois. They were married on 9 October 1880 in West Quincy, Marion county, Missouri.
Augusta was born in the villiage of Cliola, Ellington township, Adams, Illinois on 15 July 1862. Ben and Augusta lived in several locations during their married life, in 1900 they were in Quincy, Adams, Illinois. They had 8 children, including 2 sets of twins, only 4 children reached adulthood, 2 survived their father and only one son survived his mother.
I found a copy from a page of the family Bible of my great grandfather, Benjamin Franklin Hicks. Here are the 1st three entries, Fleming Hicks Died Jan. 20th 1893; Harriet Hicks Died August 22nd 1901; father Benjamin Hicks Senior Died Oct. 28 1889. It looks like my Benjamin may be the son of Benjamin and not Fleming
===========Father was born in Franklin, Simpson county, Kentucky. Benjamin was a Methodist Lay Circuit Rider Preacher & commercial gardener,(picture with cultivator in garden).
Obituary: Aged Resident of Payson Dies Suddenly Monday The news of the sudden death of Uncle Benjamin Hicks Monday afternoon at his home in Payson, was a surprise to his many friends residents of this village and elsewhere he was known. He was at the time employed in preparing a supply of firewood for the evening, relying upon his buck saw as the chief tool, in cutting away the stove lengths. During the early spring Uncle Ben, as he was generally known in Payson, suffered a severe attack of pneumonia. He never fully recovered , and frequently told his friends about his failing health. He developed a serious heart affliction and the malady increased as the weeks went by. Therefore unaware the thread of life was severed, while he was engaged in his work about the home. While he had consulted a physician since his convalesence, several weeks ago, it was decided to hold an inquest, the jury bringing in a verdict of heart lesion. Mr. and Mrs. Hicks moved to this village nine years ago. During this time he made the aquaintance of a host of friends. During the pastorate of Dr. J.G. Brooks, became a member of the Payson Congregational church. Since his admission he has been faithful in the service, and enjoyed the goodwill of all whom he came in contact.
He was a gardener by occupation, selling vegtables in the village, Hanibal, and Quincy. In the latter cities his integrty became well known. Benjamin Hicks, son of Flemmon and Harriet Jane Hicks, was born at Burton, February 24 1859, passed away Monday, November 29, 1926, aged 67, 9 months and 5 days.

On March 4th 1923, Mr. and Mrs.Hicks became members of the Congregational church of Payson. He is survived by his wife,, by his children above mentioned, and by three sisters; Mrs. John Shaw, of Alton; Mrs. Mary Mitts, of Quincy; and Mrs. C. C. Havens, of Moline; also by several nieces.

Cosgrove Funeral Home, and at the Congregational church at 2 o'clock. Interment in the Payson cemetery. Dr. Henry W. Tuttle, pastor officiating.
There was a family story that he would bring hoboes home for a meal. His wife, Agusta, would make them go into a shed to remove their clothes that she would wash in a big pot in the back yard before she would feed them.
Ben & Augusta obtained their marraige license on 5 October 1880.(have copy).
