Hicks; he went to California via the Isthmus of Panama in the winter of 1849-50, where he remained till 1858, engaged in mining, when he returned to the State of New York. He was married in the fall of that year to Maria Ashley; came immediately to Bowen's Prairie and settled on his present farm; he has 180 acres of land; has three children—Kate, Freddie and George; lost one son—Seward. In May, 1876, Mr. Hicks was thrown from his horse and received injuries that render him an invalid; although almost totally helpless from the shock which his nervous system received, yet his mind is clear and unimpaired.
