Regarding Garret Hicks:
"I am writing for my friend, Marion Hicks Baker, who has poor eyesight and cannot use a computer. She lives in Onalaska, WI.
"Her GGGfather, Garret Hicks, from Jefferson Co. was one of the men who went to Canada in 1837 to help the Canadians. He was among those captured at the Battle of the Windmill and transported to Van Diemen's Land.
"She has some knowledge regarding his trip over on the ship "Buffalo," but is curious about how long he stayed there, and of course his treatment, and also his route home. She thinks the ship may have been the "Emily Ann". She is of the opinion that he did not return for several years and would like to know what happened from the time they were pardoned til he came home.
"Do you have any information regarding the return of the transportees? If you have time and would like to help her out, please E-mail me and I will relay the info to her.
"Thank you so much." Beverly McDowell firstname.lastname@example.org July 1, 2004
