Sorry, I don't know of anyone doing research on the name.
I have about 9 months of Mason City, Iowa newspapers, and posted 1 page of one day to see if it was worth pursuing publishing the whole lot.
I've gotten about 7 hits of the 30 postings and have started creating a GEDCOM file of North Iowa.It's going to take me a couple of years to complete, but I'll keep watch for other Lickteig references for you.So far I've done 3 days of newspapers and the file contains well over 3000 names.
In that file, I have also Ann Lickteig, a high school student, in April 1939, from Wesley, Kossuth, Iowa and Jack Lickteig, a high school senior, also from Wesley, Kossuth, Iowa, in 1939.
I would be glad to send you copies of all three articles.
I will also forward your name to anyone else who seems interested in the Lickteig posting.
