i don't believe my vansickles are related to your vansickles unless they may be cousins. my andrew was married to elizabeth mcbride and their daughter was isabella my gr grandmother. as far as i know they always lived in ripley county indiana. they are buried in versailes. i'm sorry i can't be of more help.i know the frustration when you can't locate family members. good luck to you and if i come up with new info that might help you i will send it to you.
