[NI103945] The Wicks are a very old English family, who trace their ancestry back, in the history of England, over 9 hundred yrs, to the time of the Danes & their struggles to conquer the Saxons. The Wicks family, in all probability, located 1st in Wales & then removed south to Cornwall, where they have had their ancestral home for untold generations. Membs of the family were doubtless at the Battle of Hastings, took part in the Crusades, & fought in the War of the Roses. They were under Elizabeth, The Stuarts, Cromwell, & Orange, & finally, in the opening of the 18th century, came under the rule of the present House of Bruswick. John S. Wicks attended the public schools of Cornwall, & at an early age entered the mines with his father, working there until he was 17 yrs of age. He then served for 7 yrs as a fireman on the Great Western RR of England, his last run being between Exeter & London. Leaving England at 24 yrs of age, he came to NY City & soon went to Iron Mtn, MI, where he served as dept engineer at the mines until 1883, when he came to South Fork & entered the employ of the Argyle Coal co., with whom he remained up until 1887. In that yr, Mr. Wicks engaged in the music business, which he has followed profitably ever since. His establishment is on the corner of Argyle & Grant sts, & he carries a large & well-assorted stock of pianos, organs, bicycles & sewing machines. Within the last 2 yrs he has opened a clothing & gentlemen's furnishing dept on the 2nd floor, & his usual success has accompanied him in that line, where he has already established a good business. He is a pleasant, agreeable, & well-informed man of excellent business qualifications. On Nov 11 1886, Mr. Wicks m Sadie E. Pringle, d/o Philip W. Pringle, of Pringle Hill, this co. Their union has been blessed with 6 chldn: Annie, Victor John, Juniata Hope, Carrie, Leon, & William Lowell. Intelligent, active, & energetic, John S. Wicks has already made his mark at South Fork, where he is useful along several lines. He is a memb & treas. of Conemaugh Valley Conclave, No. 388, Improved Order of Hoptasophs, & a memb, trustee, & organist, for 12 yrs, of South Fork Meth Ch, of whose Sun school he has been superintendent for the last 3 terms. In the sphere of political life, he is a staunch republican, & enjoys public confidence as well as commanding party support. He was elected justice of the peace in 1891, & 2 yrs later received a further mark of political & civil preferment at the hands of his fellow-citizens by being elected burgess of Sourth Fork.

[NI104557] Daily Register, Mobile, AL, Nov 8 1901 pg. 5 NECROLOGICAL Gen. James Hagan, gentleman, planter & soldier, b Philadelphia, PA, 1821. His parents had settled in that city early in the previous century, having come from Ireland. James Hagan was one of a large family. His father was a large planter near Philadelphia, & there young Hagan resided until nearly manhood. Then the family removed to New Orleans. Shortly thereafter, James came to Mobile & joined his uncle, Mr. John Hagan, sr memb. of the lg firm of Hagan, McCloskey & Co. Mr. John Hagan was a man of great wealth, & young James had every luxury at his command. He moved in the highest social circles, & was most popular in society. The life did not suit him, however. When the Texans began their fight for independence from Mexico, they won the sympathy of young Hagan. With several adventurous spirits, among them Capt. William Walker, of Mobile, bro. of the famous Judge Percy Walker, Col. Lawrence Hunter, & Maj. James Boykin, all of Dallas Co., a vessel was chartered & the co. went to TX to take part in the war. The co. purchased their own equipments. Arriving there, young Hagan, who had had the military training & was of the inclination for a soldier, joined Col. Hays' Rangers & later joined the regular army under Gen. Scott, being given the captaincy of the 3rd Dragoons. Capt. Hagan was at the battles of Monterey & Buena Vista, as well as the other important engagements of the short war which resulted in the peace treaty between Mexico & the US. After the war, Capt. Hagan returned to Mobile. He remained in the city but a short time, purchasing a large plantation on the AL river & devoting his attention to its management. Shortly afater his return from the Mexican war, Capt. Hagan m. Ms Betty Oliver, d/o Hon. Samuel W. Oliver, a plantation owner of Dallas Co. Ms Oliver was one of the most beautiful & highly cultured women in the state & a belle whose praises were widely sung. The poem, "The Rose of Alabama", was written in her honor by a literary friend. Mrs Hagan d. some 8 yrs ago. Their wedding was celebrated in Mobile, & in this city was their home almost continually during their married life. Of the union there were 4 sons who survive: Capt. John D. Hagan & Mr. Harry Hagan. Mobile; & Oliver Hagan & James R. Hagan, Houston. Numerous gchldn also survive their gfather. In addition to the closer relatives here mentioned, Gen. Hagan leaves 2 nieces in New Orleans, the only other direct memb.s of the family. In the interim between the Mexican & Civil wars, Capt. Hagan resided in Mobile. When the Civil war broke out, he at once organized a co. in Mobile, selecting trained young men. The co. was mustered into the Confederate serv. as the Mobile Dragoons with Capt. Hagan in command. They were ordered for duty to Bayou le Batre & Coden, & their departure for the city was an incident well remembered by the old citizens of today. Of the Mobile Dragoons, but 10 memb.s are now living. The coast duty was not suitable to Capt. Hagan, & he was shortly afterward detached & sent as a maj. to join the Army of the TN, in Gen. Wheeler's force. Throughout the remainder of the war, Capt. Hagan serv. under Gen. Joseph Wheeler, being made col. & later brig-gen. His friendship with Gen. Wheeler lasted until the day of his death, & when Gen. Wheeler visited Mobile at the time of the Spanish-Amer. war 3 yrs ago, there was a pathetic meeting between the 2 old comrades. Col. Hagan serv. as brig. commander under Gen. Wheeler for 2 yrs, the last of the war. His brigade was composed entirely of AL regiments, as follows: The 1st, Col. Blakey; the 3rd, Col. Robbins; the 4th, Col. Russell; the 9th, Col. Malone; the 12th, Col. Reese, & the 51st, Col. Kilpatrick. Gen. Hagan was wounded 3 times during the war, at Franklin, TN, Kingston, TN, & Fayetteville, NC. When the 3rd AL was organized after the battle of Shiloh, Capt. Hagan was placed in command as col. This was previous to his appointment as brig.-gen. It was at Murfreesboro, 40 yrs ago, when Gen. Hagan commanded the outposts of Wheeler's army, that to him the Fed.s surrendered Copperhead C. L. Vanlandingham. At the close of the Civil War, Gen. Hagan returned to Mobile, & has resided here since that time. He owned & managed a cotten plantation on the AL river for some yrs immediately after the war, but soon gave that business up & spent this time in Mobile. In 1885, under Pres. Cleveland's 1st adm. he was appointed crier in the US court for the middle district of AL, under Judge Bruce. He has since occupied the same position in the US court for the Southern district of AL, under Judge Harry T. Toulmin. At the outbreak of the Spanish-Amer war, Gen. Hagan wrote his old commander, Gen. Joseph Wheeler, & said that if his serv.s were needed in defence of his country or otherwise, he would take pleasure in volunteering. He received a most pleasant letter in reply From Gen. Wheeler. Gen. Hagan was one of the best known & most popular men in AL. Throughout the state reside vets of the Civil war who serv. under him, & by all of them he was held in the greatest love & veneration. His chief characteristic was his gentle nature & his care for men during the war times, & it was this that endeared him to all who served under him. Since the close of the war, & during his residence in this city, Gen. Hagan became known personally to nearly every citizen, & he was a memb. of that old type of Southern culture which is so fast disappearing. His health was vigorous until the last. His last illness was of but 2 dys' duration, & but an hr before he d. he refused permission for the family to summon a physican, saying he was suffering only temporary weakness. It is interesting in a sketch of the life of Gen. Hagan to note that his wife's father, Hon. Samuel W. Oliver, Dallas Co., was one of the leading lawyers of the state d. quite suddenly while conducting his campaign for governor of the state. Although not a member of the local camps of the Confederate Vets, Gen. Hagan was held in high esteem by all of the memb.s, & in honor of his memory, memb.s of both camps will attend the funeral in a body. James Hagan is bur. in the same grave with his wife in the Magnolia Cem., Mobile, AL, square 11. The grave is marked: Bettie Oliver Hagan Wife of Gen. James Hagan Died March 19, 1894 General James Hagan Died Nov6, 1901
Also buried in this grave is the black lady remembered only as Mammy, who had been Bettie's slave. She remained with Bettie all her life, & at her (Mammy's) request was bur. with them. Note: There are several dates given for the birth of James Hagan. His place of birth is given as Philadelphia in his obit, & as PA in some censuses. However, his family is certain that he b in Ireland, & that he spoke with a marked Irish accent. Gen. Joseph Wheeler, his superior office & close friend, says in a biographical sketch that he b in Ireland. It is believed that he gave the PA place of birth for personal reasons.

[NI104559] Samuel was b. Charlotte Co., VA raised in Athens, GA by his gmother & uncle (he was orphaned at 5 or 6). He was a lawyer, politician & planter. He moved to Conecuh Co., AL in 1819, & represented that co. in the AL Legislature for 11 terms, 6 as Speaker. In 1837 he moved to dallas Co. where he ran for governor (lost by 2400 votes). Apparently he was appointed attorney general then but never served. He caught "the fever" in Sep & d. in Jan.
