I was reading with great interest you have on the Wickliff in Licking County OH.. My gggrandfather was Francis Ward born in Clensest District of Kildare Kings County Ireland. They came to America in 1847 and shortly after arriving Joseph and Susannah Ward died in NY. As family stories goes, a uncle from OH sent for the children and with the help of his married children the 7 children were raised. I have found all of the children living in Licking County OH with the Wickliff's, this is leaving me to guess that maybe Susannah Ward's maiden name was Wickliff, and her brother had taken her children to raise after they had died. In reading the messages that were on your information in I have every reason to believe that Isabelle and Elizabeth Ward married to Wickliff's were probably somehow related to Joseph Ward in Ireland. Can you shed any light on this theory?

Thanks in advance

My great grandfather, Issac Wickliffe, was born to John and Margaret Wickliffe in Licking County, Ohio on August 25, 1861. Both his parents were from Ireland. I would like any information about John or Margaret, especially Margaret's maiden name and where she was from in Ireland.

There is a "book" on the Wickliffes that I came across at the Allen Co. Library in Ft. Wayne probably put out about the 1950s or so. It mentions the John and Margaret Wickliffe you refer to. Parents of John Wickliffe 1811-1869 (buried in Wickliffe Cem. near Pataskala OH) were George Wickliffe and Isabel Ward. Parents of his wife Margaret Wickliffe 1828-1870 (also buried Wickliffe Cem.) were John Wickliffe and Elizabeth Ward. John and George were brothers. Their parents were John and Bridget Wickliffe.

I am researching the Merchant Family of Licking County, OH. Oliver Alban Merchant (5/12/1852-9/29/1931)married Elizabeth Belle Wickliff (9/26/1859 - 8/11/1935). The burial site is in the Pataskala cemetery. The marker does not state that Elizabeth Belle's last name was Wickliff. However, a family member has told me her last name was Wickliff and her parents were John Wickliff (12/3/1811 - 11/22/1869) and Margaret. I don't have Margaret's last name. Obviously, your great grandfather, Issac, and Elizabeth Belle must have been siblings. Did you know there is a private Wickliff family cemetery in Licking County. I have been there. My e-mail address is Let's "e-mail" talk.
