Your message is 5 years old, so you most likely have found some info on your Sykes family by now.I am also researching the Sykes family..... ...my gggg-grandfather was Levi Sykes/Sikes.One of his 11 children was Melinda (my ancestor).Another child was Henry. Henry married Sylvia Coe, and they had a child Lansing. Lansing married Eveline Rideout, and they had 3 children: DeHart, Mark, and Alta Mae.
The specific thing I am working on is information about Henry, Lansing's father.I would like to know when and where he died, and especially his mother's maiden name.
Have you discovered any more of your Sykes ancestry since you post?
