9. Charlotta H. Cates born 1849 in Hopkins County, Kentucky and died in same county in July of 1854 at age 5 of fever. Kentucky Death Records names parents as Ezekial Cates and Elizabeth Yeargan. During this time there was a nation wide outbreak of Yellow Fever which was transmitted by mosquitoes. The name comes from the fact that victims would turn yellow due to jaundice of the liver. This is a horrific disease as bleeding can occur from the mouth, nose, eyes and stomach.

10. Mary Jane Cates born 1853 in Hopkins County, Kentucky and died January of 1854 in same county of fever. Kentucky Death Records names parents as Ezekial Cates and Elizabeth Yeargan as parents.

4. Isabella J. 'Ibby' Cates was born August of 1822 to 1830 in Hopkins County, Kentucky and died after 1900 in Webster County, Kentucky. She married on October 3, 1851 to John Wesley Hicks in Hopkins County, Kentucky. John Wesley Hicks was born about 1828 in Henderson County, Kentucky and died between 1866 and 1870 in Missouri or Kentucky. Isabella is listed as 32 in the 1860 Mississippi, Missouri Census, aged 40 in the 1870 Hopkins, Kentucky Census, and aged 54 in the 1880 Hopkins, Kentucky Census, and aged 78 in the 1900 Webster, Kentucky Census. Given the later date of 1837 for her birth, she would have been 14 years old when she married. Perhaps she inflated her age and just forgot the original birth date as the years passed. John and Isabell moved to Missouri in 1857. After John's death, Isabell and their children returned to Kentucky between 1866 and 1870, after the birth of last child James in 1866. In the 1870 Webster County, Kentucky Census Isabell is age 40 born 1830 in Ky and son James (4) are living with George and Mary Nance and Isabell's daughter Martha (10) is living next door with George and Mary Nance's son John Nance and wife Sarah. Our Isabella Cates did not marry to William Alley in 1855 in Hopkins County as some researchers suggest because she was still with husband John W. Hicks in the 1860 Missouri Census and her last child was actually born in 1866. In fact, she is listed as Isabell Hicks, age 78, in the 1900 Webster County Census with her nephew Tom Cates and his mother Mildred Sarah Cates. If Thomas Cates is Isabella's Nephew then she is a sister to his father Newton who is the son of John Cates and Francis Newton and the granddaughter of John Cates and Isabel Elizabeth Cothran. The Isabella Cates who married William Alley listed her father as being born in Virginia and our Isabella's father was born in North Carolina. Isabella's husband, John Wesley Hicks, served in Company F 4th Missouri State Militia Cavalry. Application Number 1283704 Certificate Number 1051649 Class - Invalid, Date September 3, 1862. John W. Hicks and Isabella Cates are the parents of seven children with one who apparently died between census records:

1. William G. Hicks born August 4, 1852 in Hopkins County, Kentucky. Parents were named as John W. Hicks and Isabella J Cates according to Kentucky Birth Records. According to Kentucky Death Records he died of Consumption on January 20, 1854 in Hopkins County, Kentucky. I think his middle name was Gordon in the tradition of passing down old family surnames and Gordon is his great grandmother's maiden name. We know that it is not him listed in the 1860 Missouri Census with his family, and that it is his brother who was named for him. This William would have been eight years old, his brother was six years old and is the one listed.

2. William C. Hicks was born 1854 in Hopkins County, Kentucky. He was given the same name as his brother who died of consumption on January 20, 1854. I think his middle name could possibly be Cates after his mother's maiden name. William is listed with his parents in the 1860 Mississippi, Mississippi, Missouri Census and apparently died before the 1870 Hopkins County, Kentucky Census where his mother and siblings are living with the Nance family and he is not present. His mother Isabell had listed in later census records that she was the mother of seven children, the one who had died between census records was his brother who was his name sake.

3. Mary Ellen Hicks was born December 31, 1853 in Hopkins County Kentucky and died June 13, 1925 in Hopkins County, Kentucky. According to Kentucky Birth Records, 1852 - 1910, Mary's parents were John W. Hicks and Isabel I Cates. Mary is listed as 4 years old in the 1860 Mississippi, Missouri census. In the 1870 Webster County, Kentucky Census, Mary is living with James and Nancy Bryant. Her death certificate says Mary E. Playl is the daughter of Mr. Hicks and Ibby Cates. Mary married William Woodson Playl in 1874 according to 1900 Webster County, Census. He is the son of Woodson C. Playl and Delarky Nall, born June 1853 in Hopkins County, Kentucky and died August 6, 1922 in Webster County, Kentucky. His death certificate says he is the son of William Pfayl. Mary Hicks and William Plail had a son who shared Mary's father's middle name, William Wesley Playl, born May 22, 1874 and married Rosa, daughter of Jordon Hughes and Nancy Allen. Mary and William Playl also had a daughter named Hapie I. Playl born 1886 in Ky.

4. Nancy W. Hicks was born 1857 in Misissippi, Mississippi County, Missouri and died between 1883 in 1887 in Webster County, Kentucky. She married Levi Dick Pressley on June 14, 1871 in Kentucky. Levi was born in 1854 in Kentucky and is the son of Levi Pressley and Susan N. Carter both born in Tennessee. He died September 1, 1931 in Webster County, Kentucky. Nancy was not living with her Mom in the 1870 Webster County, Kentucky Census. She was only 13 years old and perhaps living with family members in Missouri or Kentucky. Levi second married Mary Elizabeth Price on October 18, 1887 in Webster County, Ky. Nancy Hicks and Levi Pressley are parents of Charles Wesley Pressley born 1874 in Ky, Sam Pressley born 1876 in Ky, Jessie James Wade Pressley born 1878 in Ky, and Levi B Pressley born 1883 in Ky.

5. Jackson L. Hicks born April 1858 in Mississippi, Mississippi County, Missouri and died after 1920 in Union County, Kentucky. He married in 1884 to Stacy Catherine. Jackson is living with his mother (Izabel, 54) in the 1880 Webster County, Ky census listed as aged 28, sister Martha (21), brother Jimmy (James) aged 15, and Nora (3) granddaughter to Izabel. In the 1900 Buffalo, Craighead, Arkansas Census he is listed as Jackson L. Hacks born April 1858 in Mo and married in 1884 to Stacy Catherine who is age 47, daughter Beula is aged 8. In the 1910 Morganfield, Union County, Kentucky Census Jackson is 53 and Catherine is 56, son Allen is 30.

Netter is the son of Virgil Preston Kessinger and Martha Ann Daugherty and was born March 3, 1862 in Butler County, Kentucky and died December 4, 1918 in Mclean County, Kentucky. Netter and Mattie are buried at Oak Hill Cemetery in Livermore, Mclean County, Kentucky with no markers.

7. James Hicks born 1866 in Missouri and died between 1880 and 1900. He died before the 1900 census where his mother listed seven children and three living which were Mary, Jackson, and Martha Jane. There is no death record for James.

FERGUSON

1. PAUL FERGUSON was born about 1742 in South Carolina, and died December 1824 in Butler County, Kentucky where he is buried near Mount Vernon Cemetery in Dexterville. He married ELIZABETH ANN SUTTON who was born 1742 in South Carolina, and died before 10 December 1824 in Butler County, Kentucky. Paul Elizabeth Ann “Annie” Sutton Ferguson left Chester County, South Carolina, and moved to Old Logan County, KY, in 1798. They brought several of their children, some married children followed later. and one child, Paul Ferguson, Jr. is known to have remained in Chester Co., SC. On 20 September 1799, Paul received a 200 acre land grant on the Gasper River in Old Logan County, KY (now Butler County, KY). In 1802, Paul built the beautiful log cabin which still stands in Butler County, KY. Paul had fought with General Sumter during the Revolutionary War and in his pension application of 1824 he states that he was with Sumter at the Battle of Fish Dam Ford. Paul was a Revolutionary War patriot for Craven County, North Carolina Line 2nd Regiment. Late in the year of 1824 Paul traveled to what is now the Dexterville Community to visit fellow soldier William Beasley. Paul died while he was there and was buried near the present site of Mount Vernon Missionary Baptist Church. His estate was settled December 30, 1824. Originally his grave site bore a sandstone marker stating "Paul Ferguson. Died about 1825". During the 1930's the WPA (Works Progress Administration) rebuilt the Dexterville Road routing it perilously close to the grave site. They removed the sandstone marker and fence surrounding the grave and erected a metal marker bearing the same information in it's place. Recently in 1999 a committee formed of the Descendants of Paul Ferguson made an attempt to locate and transfer the remains to Mount Vernon Cemetery. They obtained permits from the state highway department and the Kentucky Department of Human Resources to exhume the body under the direction of Coroner Gerald Jones on November 10th. The attempt was unsuccessful and the metal marker was put back in place until future plans can be made. Plans for an historic marker to be placed on the original site of the grave are underway, as are plans for a DAR monument to be placed in the Mount Vernon Cemetery.

GRISHAM

1. LEMUEL GRISHAM SENIOR was born in GA or Va between about 1790. He moved to Kentucky prior to 1812 at which time he bacame a soldier in the War of 1812. Lemuel married PARMELLA JANE? either in Kentucky or the Mississippi territory, part of which became the Alabama Territory in 1817. She was born between 1796 and 1798 in New York. Her parents names are not yet known, yet likely they moved to Kentucky or the Mississippi / Alabama Territory when she was a girl. Lemuel received land grants for his service in 1812 according to the U.S. General Land Office Records, 1796 - 1907. Document Number 717 states that on September 3, 1835, Lemuel Grisham received 74.64 acres in Desha County, Arkansas. Accession Number: AR0020__.069. Land Office: Little Rock Authority: April 24, 1820: Sale-Cash Entry (3 Stat. 566). Legal Land Description: Section 9 - TWP 7-S - Range 2-E - Meridian 5th PM. The land was in a bend of the Mississippi river where it meets the Arkansas River. Desha County was formed December 12, 1838, and was named for Capt. Ben Desha.

The Mississippi Territory was a historic, organized territory of the United States from April 7, 1798, and expanded twice (in 1804 and 1812), until it extended from the Gulf of Mexico to the southern border of Tennessee. (Georgia gave up the northern portion in 1802, and the Gulf Coast region was acquired from Spain.) Originally Mississippi Territory included what is now Alabama, and 9 months before Mississippi was admitted into the Union in 1817, the Alabama Territory to the east was separated out on March 3. On December 10, 1817, Mississippi was admitted to the Union as the 20th state.

The Mississippi Territory was organized in 1798 from land that had been disputed by the U.S. and Spain until Spain ceded claim with the Treaty of Madrid in 1795. This area covered the southern half of the present states of Alabama and Mississippi. The state of Georgia maintained a claim over almost the entire area of the present states of Alabama and Mississippi until it surrendered its claim in 1802. Two years later, Congress extended the boundaries of the Mississippi Territory to include all of the Georgia cession. In 1812, the U.S. Congress annexed to the Mississippi Territory the Mobile District of West Florida, claiming that it was included in the Louisiana Purchase. On March 3, 1817, the Mississippi Territory was divided, when the western portion became the state of Mississippi, and the eastern became the Alabama Territory.

According to the 1830 US census Lemuel Grisham is in the Mississippi / Arkansas Territory with 1 male under 5, 2 males between 5 and 10, 1 male between 40 and 50, 2 females under 5, 1 female between 10 an 15, 1 female between 20 an 30.

In the 1860 Hopkins census Parmella, 62, was still living with her son Joseph and his family with the record stating that she was born 1798 in New York and her son 30 was born in Mississippi. In the 1870 Hopkins census Parmella was listed as 80 years old and her son Joseph was listed as Josephus and aged 38.

According to a book, Kentucky Soldiers of the War of 1812, Lemuel Grisham is listed on index page on page 362 - he entered service as private on January 1, 1814 and engaged april 30, 1814 in Captain Thomas L Butler's Company of US Infantry.

6. Elizabeth F. Hicks born July 28, 1839 in Henderson County, Kentucky. Death certificate says she is the daughter of Jordan Hicks and Merricba Black. She married William V. Dykes. They are buried in Henderson at Fernwood Cemetery.

7. John W. Hicks was born about 1828 in Henderson County, Kentucky and died between 1866 and 1870 in Missouri or Kentucky. He married on October 3, 1851 in Hopkins County, Kentucky to Isabella J. 'Ibby' Cates who was born August 1826 to 1830 in Kentucky. She is listed as 32 in the 1860 census, aged 40 in the 1870 census, and aged 54 in the 1880 census. John and Isabell moved to Missouri in 1857. After John's death, Isabell and their children returned to Kentucky between 1866 and 1870, after the birth of last child James in 1866. In the 1870 Webster County, Kentucky Census Isabell is age 40 born 1830 in Ky and son James (4) are living with George and Mary Nance and Isabell's daughter Martha (10) is living next door with George and Mary Nance's son John Nance and wife Sarah. Our Isabella Cates did not marry to William Alley in 1855 in Hopkins County as some researchers suggest because she was still with husband John W. Hicks in the 1860 Missouri Cenus and her last child was actually born in 1866. In fact, she is listed as Isabell Hicks, age 78, in the 1900 Webster County Census with her nephew Tom Cates and his mother Sarah. The Isabella Cates who married William Alley listed her father as being born in Virginia and our Isabella's father was born in North Carolina. John Wesley Hicks served in Company F 4th Missouri State Militia Cavalry. Application Number 1283704 Certificate Number 1051649 Class - Invalid, Date September 3, 1862. John W. Hicks and Isabell are the parents of seven children with one who apparently died between census records:

1. William G. Hicks born August 4, 1852 in Hopkins County, Kentucky. Parents were named as John W. Hicks and Isabella J Cates according to Kentucky Birth Records. According to Kentucky Death Records he died of consumption on January 20, 1854 in Hopkins County, Kentucky. I think his middle name was Gordon in the tradition of passing down old family surnames and Gordon is his great grandmother's maiden name. We know that it is not him listed in the 1860 Missouri Census with his family, and that it is his brother who was named for him. This William would have been eight years old, his brother was six years old and is the one listed.

2. William C. Hicks was born 1854 in Hopkins County, Kentucky. He was given the same name as his brother who died of consumption on January 20, 1854. I think his middle name could possibly be Cates after his mother's maiden name. William is listed with his parents in the 1860 Mississippi, Mississippi, Missouri Census and apparently died before the 1870 Hopkins County, Kentucky Census where his mother and siblings are living with the Nance family and he is not present. His mother Isabell had listed in later census records that she was the mother of seven children, the one who had died between census records was his brother who was his name sake.

3. Mary Ellen Hicks was born December 31, 1853 in Hopkins County Kentucky and died June 13, 1925 in Hopkins County, Kentucky. According to Kentucky Birth Records, 1852 - 1910, Mary's parents were John W. Hicks and Isabel I Cates. Mary is listed as 4 years old in the 1860 Mississippi, Missouri census. In the 1870 Webster County, Kentucky Census, Mary is living with James and Nancy Bryant. Her death certificate says Mary E. Playl is the daughter of Mr. Hicks and Ibby Cates. Mary married William Woodson Playl in 1874 according to 1900 Webster County, Census. He is the son of Woodson C. Playl and Delarky Nall, born June 1853 in Hopkins County, Kentucky and died August 6, 1922 in Webster County, Kentucky. His death certificate says he is the son of William Pfayl. Mary Hicks and William Plail had a son who shared Mary's father's middle name, William Wesley Playl, born May 22, 1874 and married Rosa, daughter of Jordon Hughes and Nancy Allen. Mary and William Playl also had a daughter named Hapie I. Playl born 1886 in Ky.

4. Nancy W. Hicks was born 1857 in Misissippi, Mississippi County, Missouri and died between 1883 in 1887 in Webster County, Kentucky. She married Levi Dick Pressley on June 14, 1871 in Kentucky. Levi was born in 1854 in Kentucky and is the son of Levi Pressley and Susan N. Carter both born in Tennessee. He died September 1, 1931 in Webster County, Kentucky. Nancy was not living with her Mom in the 1870 Webster County, Kentucky Census. She was only 13 years old and perhaps living with family members in Missouri or Kentucky. Levi second married Mary Elizabeth Price on October 18, 1887 in Webster County, Ky. Nancy Hicks and Levi Pressley are parents of Charles Wesley Pressley born 1874 in Ky, Sam Pressley born 1876 in Ky, Jessie James Wade Pressley born 1878 in Ky, and Levi B Pressley born 1883 in Ky.

5. Jackson L. Hicks born April 1858 in Mississippi, Mississippi County, Missouri and died after 1920 in Union County, Kentucky. He married in 1884 to Stacy Catherine. Jackson is living with his mother (Izabel, 54) in the 1880 Webster County, Ky census listed as aged 28, sister Martha (21), brother Jimmy (James) aged 15, and Nora (3) granddaughter to Izabel. In the 1900 Buffalo, Craighead, Arkansas Census he is listed as Jackson L. Hacks born April 1858 in Mo and married in 1884 to Stacy Catherine who is age 47, daughter Beula is aged 8.

PREVETTE

In the year of 1700 some 700 immigrants led by Marquis De La Muce landed in Virginia and started the Manakintown settlement. The first ship to land was the "Mary Ann," which cleared from London, England on April 19, 1700 and arrived at Hampton, Virginia on July 23rd. The "Peter and Anthony," the ship that Pierre Presal was on, landed at James Town on October 6, 1700 and the fourth ship "Nasseau," landed on March 5, 1701. Little is known about the third ship. By 1710 the Huguenots settled the Trent and Neuse Rivers in North Carolina and other Huguenots from Switzerland and Palatine Germany established New Bern, North Carolina soon after.

 

Huguenot was the name given to the Protestants of France. It had been introduced between 1520 and 1523 and, at first, King Francis I of France granted Huguenots protection, but toward the end of his reign he persecuted them. The greatest act of treachery took place in 1572 when Catherine and Henry IX signed a treaty with the Huguenots granting freedom of worship. Then, on August 25, 1572 on Stain Bartholomew's Day, the king and queen had thousands of Huguenots massacred. Afterward there were many civil wars under King Louis XII and Louis XIV. Louis XIV persecuted the Protestants mercilessly and on October 18, 1685 he revoked the Edict of Nantes, which is a decree giving partial religious freedom to the Huguenots. No doubt Peirre Presal was dealing with this persecution.

 

Between 500,000 and one million Huguenots left France. These people fled to Germany, The Netherlands, Switzerland, and the English Colonies in America. Calvinism was the division of Protestant Christianity that was developed by the French Huguenots. Colonists became known as Puritans. Puritanism asserts the sinfulness of mankind, and declares that some will be saves through the righteousness of Jesus Christ despite their sins. The experience of conversion, in which the soul is touched by the Holy Spirit, is some indication that one is of the elect.

 

In the Colonies George Whitfield and other ministers preached at large open-aired religious revivals inspiring the first "Great Awakening" which was a general revival of enthusiasm that reached it's peak in the 1740's. It was a significant movement in the colonies which contributes to a sense of American nationality before the American Revolution.

 

1. PIERRE PRESAL, a French Huguenot, was born about 1680 in Guines Nord-Pas-De-Calais, France and died about 1740 in Manakintown, Buckingham County, Virginia. The name of his wife is unknown. The surname Prevatte, is derives from the French term "prevot", which means "magistrate, steward, or head servant". Variations in the spelling of the family name are: Privette, Prevatte, Preval, Prevol, Presol, Presal & others as the name was spelled according to how it was pronounced in America. French Huguenots were oppressed by the government . The Saint Bartholomew's Day Massacre in 1572 during which an estimated 50,000 Protestants where slaughtered was mere one dramatic event in reoccurring religious. wars that had existed in France for a century. Despite the provisions of the Edict of Nantes (1599) which, certain freedoms to Protestant French citizens, The Edict was of little influence in the protection of the religious freedoms of the Protestant population and was repudiated in 1685. Refuge was given to French Protestants in England in the late sixteen hundreds and in 1700 a land grant in Virginia for the Huguenots opened the door to America.

The heraldry of the Taylors tells us that the progenerator of all Taylors (English) was Hangor Taylor (1256) descendant of Norman Baron Talifor (Taylor) who lost his life at the Battle of Hastings or Selnac about 1064.
