Notes on Starr's compilations:

1) Charles' father Nathan was married to a Na-ye-hi not to Nancy Broom.

2) Nancy Elizabeth Broom aka Anna Felicitas was married to Charles Renatus.

3) In the Halfbreed 1-x & 1-1-x family groups Starr depicts Lydia Halfbreed
and Charles Hicks as the parents of George Hicks; however, Starr's un-published
notes, pg 146-147, and the entries for the Spring Place Students lead me to
believe that the spouse of Lydia Halfbreed should have been listed as
Charles' brother William, and George as their son.
Joined the Church of the United Brethren at Spring Place and was baptised on Apr 10, 1813.
At this time the missionaries conferred upon him the name of Renatus (Renewed):
Charles Renatus Hicks.
Cherokee Tragedy, The Ridge Family and the Decimation of a People, by Thurman Wilkins,
University of Oklahoma Press, Morman and London:
On his way home from Salem, Major Ridge stopped at Spring Place on January 22, 1827, and
found the mission in mourning. During his absence the Cherokee had lost in quick succession
their principal chiefs: the aged Pathkiller had died first and two weeks later Charles Hicks lay
in a walnut coffin at Spring Place. Hicks had attended the coulcil at New Echota the previous
fall though badly ailing. On his way home he was forced to camp in the woods and had taken
cold from the dampness. He had gone to bed with Dropsical complaints and had never risen
again. Major Ridge, on taking a last look at his friend, learned that he had died gently on
January 20 as though he had mearly fallen asleep. The Ridge delivered an impressive
exhortation at the funeral.
Cherokee Tragedy, The Ridge Family and the Decimation of a People, by Thurman Wilkins,
University of Oklahoma Press, Morman and London:
Upon hearing of the death Charles Hicks, one Cherokee said "The Cherokee will sell their
land now; those who are left have their price."
