On the George Ricker marr. Elanor Evans line, their descendent Ira D. changed his name from Ricker to Davis in 1848.There was still controversy over this changewhen Ira D.'s daughter Ruel said that either there had been family quarrel with other Rickers, or that name derived from some Mother's maiden name. Ira D's Mother's maiden name had been Davis. Does anyone know more of this change? LD married to Ira D.'s great grandson.
