John Cunard
Hi, Dean! I am descendant of John Cunard and Nancy Johnson and am preparing a DAR supplement on the Edward Cunard line. At present there is no recognized DAR line through John, only through Edward Jr. I am trying to establish John was indeed Edward (Sr.)'s son. I have Quaker meeting minutes from VA but lack exact dates for John's birth and death. Do you know the origin of the dates given on F.A.G.? Many thanks!

William Posey Hice
I too am part of the extended Hice family....
My Mother: Ollie Mae Hice Shope 1916-2006
My Grandfather: William Clayton Hice 1872-1960
My GGrandfather: William Posey Hice 1852-1915
..and counter to some contributors, I believe
My GGGrandfather: George Hice 1831-? (1852-54)

This George was the first husband of Nancy McElroy Hice Williamson...(see Paulding co Ga,1850 census for George and Nancy Heiss living next door to John Mckleroy and the 1860 Fannin co Ga census with both William P. Hice and John McElroy shown in the Anderson and Nancy Williamson household.)

There are Fannin co. marriage records for Nancy Hice and Anderson Williamson in Oct of 1855.

William Posey Hice was the only child of George Heiss(Hice), and and Nancy. (I often heard my mother and aunts say that William Posey Hice named his dau Nancy Eller after his mother....)

I have not been able to identify George's father, tho there must be a close connection to Harrison's family, as William Posey apparently named a son after him...

If you or any other contributors have more information or would like to ask me any questions, my email is , I would love to hear from others researching the Hice line.
Thanks so much

RE: Hice
My Hice Connection goes as:
William Posey Hice
(My Great Great Grandfather)
Abram Harrison Hice (Son)
(My Great Grandfather)
Homer Claude Hice (Abram's Son)
(My Grandfather & My Mother's Father)

My mother (who is a Hice) is the oldest of 3 girls born to Homer. There were 2 sets of twin boys born but they did not live, making my mother the oldest of his children to survive.

I'm searching for ancestors from my mother & fathers side, which has taken me ALOT longer than I ever expected. Plus, I never know when to stop. Hence the name: (Hice, Joly, Williams) Coulston.

My mother is a Hice & Joly. My father is a Coulston & Williams.

Hice Family
I just read memorial's of George & Margaret Hice. I was not aware of any of that information. William Posey Hice (brother to George), is my Great Great Grandfather from my mother's side. Are you related to the Hice's also?

"Never mind" my previous request. Reconciled my question about dates. Had read "1870" when the date was "1871". Thanks! Dana B.

Hello, by chance do you know who provided the headstone? I am trying to reconcile that the headstone shows William's death date as Mar 21, 1870, when he appears in the 1870 census, dated Aug 1870. Would appreciate any insights you may have on it. Thank you for the posting the memorial. These are my 3rd great grandparents! Dana B.
