Seeking parents of Gersham Flick, born 1788 in Pennsylvania, married Mary Fry, born 1788 in Virginia, on August 1, 1816 in Clermont County, Ohio. Gersham had atleast one son, Jacob Fry, born 1819/1820 in Ohio, who married (yet another) Mary Fry, born 1821/1822 in Ohio or Kentucky, on August 22, 1822, in Clermont County, Ohio.
So we have Gersham Flick, married to Mary Fry, Aug 1, 1816
Then son Jacob Flick, married to Mary Fry, Aug 22, 1841.
Jacob Flick and Mary Fry started having children in Ohio, then moved to Pendleton County, Kentucky and had the rest of their children. Along the way, the name changed from Flick to Fleek.
Jacob and Mary had children:
Matthew born March 1842 in Ohio Mary E born 1845 in Ohio Margaret born 1846 in Ohio and died June 1849 in Pend KY Sarah born 1848 in Ohio and died July 1849 in Pend KY Nicholas Mosby born Jan 18, 1853 in Pendleton, KY Peter L born Nov 14, 1854 in Pendleton, KY Douglas C born Nov 25, 1856 in Pendleton, KY Caphina or Catherine born 1862 Kentucky
The early Kentucky birth records show Nicholas, Peter and Douglas born to a Jacob Flick and Mary Fry, even though the census records and later records show the spelling as Fleek. If it were not for the birth records, I would only have Jacob Fleek and Mary unknown.
I have not found Gersham Flick's parents. Hope there is a Pennsylvania will that would show a son named Gersham. It seems to be an unusual name, Gersham Flick. Can anyhone give me any leads on his parents?
