If anyone can help us, we are in the process of researching our family history. We would like any information that can be offered about William Fickel who was born around 1810. My name is John C. Fickel. My fathers name is Gerald Fickel, and his fathers name was John W. Fickel; who was married to a woman named Viola Gordon. John W. Fickel's fathers name was William Thomas Fickel. We think that this is the same William Fickel. John W. Fickel died of pneumonia following a horse and wagon accident in 1920 thereabouts.
