According to the Center for Volga German Studies at Concordia University, the original spelling of this surname was Yckes. [1] The spelling of the surname in all Volga German records uses an I instead of a Y, so the surname for these family members will be spelled Icks or Ichs.

George Icks was the son of Johann Yckes, born 1686 and died 22 January 1747, and Anna Gertraut, last name at birth unknown. Georg was born on 13 October 1736 in Romrod near Alsfeld in Hessen. He married Anna Barbara Schäfer in Büdingen on 07 April 1766 before immigrating to Russia and settling in Grimm. [1] [2]

The only immigration record that looks like a match is found in the Kulberg Reports under the name Ikes : [3] Ikes, Johann, Lutheran farmer from Darmstadt document number 2725, wife Anna. The couple departed from Luebeck and arrived in Russia on 31 July 1766. [3]
