Vick Family History Books

Are there any good Vick family history books or short histories about the Vick families other than those I have listed below? While I am interested in books about the Joseph Vick of Lower Parish, Isle of Wight County, Virginia clan I am especially interested in books or short histories of other clans both in the U.S. and in other countries. The list below was largely gleaned from the book by Beatty and Vick.

Trying to learn more about Newitt Vick. I guess you've read/have the book "Between the Rivers", by Florence Stewart. It's a short story in it about Nick Vick, ("1st wealthy settler in the Vicksburg area") I do research for East Carroll Parish, and hoped to find an image of the Vicksburg founder... any where I can find one?

The only thing I have seen is a silhouette that is thought by some to be his. It, along with one said to be of his wife, is at the Old Courthouse Museum in Vicksburg, and a copy is in "Joseph Vick of Lower Parish, Isle of Wight County, Virginia and His Descendants. According to the book, "Since the clothing and hair styles appear to be of an earlier generation, this attribution has been challenged."
