As I could not connectthis John Van Sickle with our family(and from the names of the heirs there may a relationship) I gave the documents to the Hancock Co. Oh. Library.There is also a copy at the Hancock Co. clerks office. In 1850 some of the family was Van Sickle & some were Sickles ,according to the Hancock Co. History the father of Elias Sickles was David Sickles,Elias Sickles had nine children ,I found eight, a daughter Elizebeth used the name Van Sickle when she married James Caywood,some of the family remained in Hancock Co. others moved on to Williams Co. Oh.,Hillsdale & St Joseph Co. Mi. using both mames Sickles & Van Sickle My gr. gr . grandfather John Sickles was born 1819 in Harrison Co. Oh. I am still searching for the missing ninth child, first name unknown born 1820-1830.
