Thank you, James.I am not part of the Trickett family, but have an unusual connection to the CW or AG Tricketts who lived in Bird City, Kansas in the early-mid 1900's.This might sound really strange, but please know that I am not crazy!These Tricketts owned a Funeral Home in Bird City, at some point in the 1900's until 1959.After that time, my parents (Darwin and Helen Higgins) bought the funeral home, and turned it into the home, in which I grew up(The address is 104 Cave Ave, Bird City, KS 67731). When I was about 8-years old, I was "visited" by a young boy, of about 8-10 years old.Now, do not laugh, please, as this is in all seriousness.He was a ghost.He lingered about 3 feet from me, looking at me, and then disappeared after about 20-30 seconds.I have never, ever forgotten this, and have wondered my entire life who this child could have been.I don't know if he was a Trickett, or someone else.I realize this is quite a strange story, but believe me when I say it really did happen.My mother did not believe me, and I was never allowed to speak of it, but I KNOW what I saw. Even at the that young age Iknew this child was not "real", and not from my time, as he was dressed in clothing of the late 1800-s or early 1900's.I have now found a George W Trickett who was born on July 3, 18968 and died on May 6, 1878, which fits the age, and the clothing and appearance that would be appropriate for what I saw.I have been haunted by this child's image for almost 40 years now, and it is as fresh in my mind as if I had seen it yesterday.I am not a psycic or anything, and have never seen a ghost or apparition, ever since in my life...it was just this one child, on this one night. I just can't seem to let go, and have been searching for a long time to try and find a child who would have been that age, and lived and/or died in Bird City...he obviously had some connection to that property, or perhaps to me...I just don't know.Again, thanks for your information, and if you do know anything about this child, I would love to know more.Thanks for your patience, and for not (at least I hope not!) thinking I am a lunatic!
