Re: Update: Elizabeth Rickert and Andrew
I think your Elizabeth is the woman who married Henry Stirewalt.She is listed in most accts as Betsey Recard.She would be the sister of Andrew Rickert, and aunt to Elizabeth (b1823), who was my gg grandmother.
I assumed that Andrew's mother was Anna Beigen, but thats just based on what other people have written.Andrew was born abt 1799 and his sister Elizabeth (Betsey) around 1791.I dont know how many wives the Rev John Michael Rickert had.
These families intermarried a lot.Elizabeth's (1823) mother-in-law was Salome Stirewalt (my ggg grandmother).Henry was Salome's cousin.
You can contact me at [email protected] also.I believe I have a little more info on John Michael Rickert in my files.
