HICKS, JOSEPH W.Private
AgeLlewellyn's Company

Joseph W. Hicks was a Kentuckian, who enlisted at San Felipe Dec. 10, 1835, along with M. Hawkins, A. Swords and A. D. Larison, as volunteers for the reduction of Bexar  [Ed: LOMR p.65]. At Bexar, Dec. 12th, he joined Llewellyn's Company, and was paid, as a member of that organization for the period Dec. 12, 1835 to March 12, 1836, and his name, somewhat disguised, appears on Pittman's muster roll for that Company. He was not killed, however, at San Patricio or Agua Dulce, but continued in the service of Texas until 1838, when he was either killed or died in the service.

A. Somerville administered on his estate. Neither the circumstances of his separation from Johnson and Grant, nor any inference as to whether he escaped from San Patricio or Agua Dulce, or was not present at either of those affairs, is to be drawn from the archives which record his services and death.
