Terry Wilcox's Hicks, Leach, Haines, Foster and Lasley Family Tree


Update 10-2-11: This is long overdue. Incase no one knows, my father, Terry Wilcox, passed away a few years ago. This site is now dedicated to his memory. Thanks for keeping his memory & love of this alive. Please enjoy yourself and check out some of my photo's. I did not add photo's to most pages because a lot of us still use dialup and the pages load too slowly with lots of graphic's. Most of my links are at the bottom of this page.

Some families know a great deal about their roots while others know very little. My goal is an attempt to record some of what I've learned about our family history on the internet for others to see. In these modern times, families tend to be scattered all over the country, if not the world. One of the goals of this web site is to help our family stay connected even though we live far apart. If you are visiting this site please sign our guest book and let us know if you would like to add anything. Click on link above to e-mail me.


The first think you is to my wife Nancy Ann who with me spent hours in the libraries and court houses of north Missouri coping down records and talking to people.

A Thank You also to many people including: Jane Ponce, who is the grand daughter of William Leech contributed most of the information of ancesters of Samual Leech.

Russell and Betty Hicks are the people who helped me get started. At Russell's home in the early 1980s we had a genealogy meeting to share information and photos. There I was to meet Gene Bruner who contributed much of the Hicks, Fincher and Bruner information as well as pictures of his ancesters.

Evelynn Hicks, Marian Pratt and Cheryl Hicks supplied the information from the Hicks famlies on the west coast. Linda Leech, Tonya Hunter, Karen Vasquez, gave me info and pictures of what they found on their quest.

From people I have talked to this include Gurney Horton, Ruby Hicks, Zelme White Brown, my mother and uncles Jim, Bill and Richard. Many other people that have contributed are not mentioned but know I thank you one and all. I wish to think the Librarys in Putnam, Schyler and Scotland counties.

Also I must note the court house attendants in Schyler county went out of their way to help me. I spent like several days pouring over wills, probate records, and marriages there.

Also I want to mention the Fabious cemetery west of Downing, Missouri. A thank you to the fine folks who take care of this resting place. It is the best kept cementery in the country. Much work has been done on restoring the old tombstones and make it the nice place for our ancesters to call home. In eastern Putnam county I found several tombstones broken off by power mowers and thrown over the fence. I also found two stone missing from the Mitchell Cemetery west of Omaha Mo. They were large black marble stones.

Hope you enjoyed this web site. Please sign the guest book before leaving. If you have a question please e-mail me since months go by before I answer questions asked in the guest book. Be aware that not all the links are active all the time it seems. Also my HTML skills are not real good so all pages may not apear correctly

Thanks for stopping by. If you find mistakes as many have let me know. I have a dialup connection and quite often I do not see what someone with a DSL connection would see

Making first contact: be a happy camper and send me an e-mail
