Joshua Ricks, of Rockingham County and his wife, Martha Palmer, had a daughter named Susan. She was born in Bradley County, Tenn., in 1848 (1850 U. S. Census, Pop. Sch., Guilford Co., N. C., 22 July 1850, Southern Div., p. 263, dewl. 117, line 5). Her older brother, Pleasant, died of typhoid fever during the Civil War (see NC Troops, 1861-1865, Vol III, p. 28). Perhaps this is the family of your Susan.
