Thomas Hicks appears to have been unmarried when he was recorded in the North Carolina, State Census of 1784-1787 for his household only lists himself as does the 1790 Census. The 1800 census reflects his marriage to Constance and includes a male child under ten which is presumably his son Thomas and the two teenagers Lucy and Bennett Hester, his step-children, for whom he is guardian along with several other unknown adult persons besides himself and his wife.
