For the most part I have most of that-
Where we run into problems is:

148. NATHAN6 HICKS, JR (NA-YE-HI5 CONRAD, JENNIE4 ANI'-WA'YA, OCONOSTOTA3, MOYTOY2, A-MA-DO-YA1) was born Abt. 1764. He married MARY MASON. She was born Abt. 1765.

****** Questionable entry ********
Nathan MAY have been the son of Nathaniel Hicks, soldier of the American Revolution.
He may have been a son by a white wife to Nathan Hicks the Indian Trader.

Nathan was the first settler of the Wrightsville area while it was located in Washington County, settling on the Ohoopee about three miles southwest of Wrightsville. He was granted several tracts in Washington County from 1784 to 1788, and purchased land on the Great Ohoopee in 1791. Nathan was the Justice of the Peace of Montgomery County, 1793, security on the bond of Clerk Thomas Pugh in 1794, 1797/1798 landowner Montgomery Co., married Mary Mason, may have also married Martha _______, born ca. 1760/70, see 1830 Census, Children: James (m. Mary Pullen, Elizabeth Hightower Ellington), possibly Reuben. 1830 Emanuel 56th, p. 168, Laurens County History I, p. 401, Montgomery, pp. 46, 336, 340, Dublin Post, 5/5/1886, p. 3, Montgomery Records, p. 48, Grants, pp. 287,88.

448.       i.              JAMES7 HICKS, SR, b. March 20, 1799, Georgia; d. March 04, 1888, Georgia.

This is what is written on the "Cherokee Genealogies"
From what has been documened and family lore-
As you can see the son Reuben is a 'probable' I guess there was not a record of a will to list him as a son

I will note him in my records as a possible son-

As you can also see there is a question about which Nathan could be senior also

Thanks for enlightening me - I appreciate the response.
