I descend from John Fickes, b. 1781 in PA.He was probably the John who married Mary Elizabeth Rudysill in 1806 in Cumberland Co. PA.Some say that his parents were Isaac and Rachel Fickes.I'm not so sure, and am looking for more sources and documnetation to back that up.
John's route was PA/OH/IL.He died in Coles County abt 1852.There were eight children in the family including the oldest son Jacob, and John who I descend from.
Do you have any info. on the children of Isaac and Rachel Fickes?I think they had a son named John, but I'm not sure if it's the same John as mine. Thanks!
