Dr. KT Vick subject: Colonization of Vicks in Virginia (historical perspective of Joseph's Virginia and our family's presence in the Commonwealth, as seen through the lens of social history) Have you ever wondered what life was like for our Vick ancestors, living in Colonial Virginia? Life was challenging and each day posed many obstacles that we contemporary Americans may take for granted. From those first days when Joseph Vick of Lower Parish, Isle of Wight County arrived to seek his fortune and fame in the New World, until the colonization of Virginia finally gained a stronghold, there are many stories to share and opportunities to learn how our ancestors lived and prospered.
