Unidentified person buried in family plot: An F. Hicks is buried in the James W. Hicks family plot, Lot 42 Div 3, in Greenwood Cemetery; burial date is 19 Aug 1908. Sex unknown, 36 years old, died in an accident in Montana. Information from the records of Vincent Monuments (815/777-2365) who manages Greenwood Cemetery. No idea who this is, but pretty sure it's not James' child or a sibling.

James was married twice. First to Ida Adell Chapin, who died of consumption. He either had one or two sons with her. I've seen two names James Henry Hicks (b.1878) and Bert Hicks (b.1879) listed on US census records. However, I've not found enough official records to confirm if these are the same or separate individuals.

He married Lillian Josephine Combellick, daughter of Thomas Combellick and Alicia "Alice" Adams, in 1886, and had a son William Percy Hicks (1889-1974). Eventually James and Lillian divorced.
