I am the son of Mary Margret Fickes born in Newport PA, daughter of Charles Curtis and Mary (Carl) Fickes, one of eight, including a set of twins (John and Jess - I think). Several lived and died in the Newport area and Harrisburg Area. They were origionally from further south in PA (old Adams County) what is now Franklin County. My mother had a sister Jenny Fickes-Portz and two brothers, Ray and Walter. I'm not sure of the names in your post but they sound familiar to some of the other info I have. Any help looking back would be appreciated.
