I am a descendant of Anthony VanSickle who settled in Mason County WV around 1800 and am trying to piece together who his ancestors were. I was overjoyed to find this exchange about Zachariah and Rossanah because it goes to the heart of what I'm trying to discover. Who was Anthony's father - Zachariah or Samuel? And what is their line of descent?
I've come to think they are not from the Ferdinandus VanSicklen line, but rather from the Zacharias Sickles line, but that doesn't matter so much right now as determining to the degree possible who Anthony's (and Christina's) father was.
Since it's been a while since there was a post on this subject, I was wondering if Norma had made any progress on this question, or whether anyone else has information to shed light on it.
