Shirley,

Thomas McDonald Likens was my gggGrandfather. He was a soldier with Andrew Jackson at the battle of Talladega and became a prominent attorney afterwards practicing in the Oxford, Benton CO area. There are many land grants of the Creek Indian lands in his name. Another gggGrandfather was Leonard Tarrant who was the Land agent administrating the disposal of the Creek lands. Thomas and Hetty moved to Henderson, Rusk, CO Tx bet 1840 and 1842 and he practiced Law there with another ggGrandfather W.H. Estill until about 1860.

You can find an extensive report on his son James B. Likens and other Likens family members at the following: www.wtblock.com/wtblockjr/Likens.htm

I would like to correspond with you on further information on the Likens line. Please contact me.

Thanks,

Ron Hogan
