I'm am having a hard time traceing my Van Sickle's through the years. The family history i had been given years ago was incomplete. I'm trying to fill in the blanks but there are too many conflicting names and places. I'm hoping someone out there has this same family no matter how distant and can help clear up the confusion.
My great great grandmother was Ida May Van Vansickle b. 10 Aug. 1866 in Putnam Co. Indiana (siblings) Almira "Belle" b. 1872 Putnam Co. Ind., James McCormick b. 25 March 1875 Putnam Co. Ind., Arthur b. 1878 Putnam Co. Indiana, Oscar, Edward (parents) Abraham Johnson Van SIckle and Agnes Cornell Sheilds Abraham was b.22 Aug. 1840 Putnam Co. Ind. m. Sept 28 1865 in Morgan Co. Indiana d. Dec 2 1921 in Stafford Co. Kansas.
(parents) Abraham Van SIckle and Nancy Murphy Abraham was born in PA married Nancy Aug 19 1823 in Mason Co. Kentucky Nancy was born 1804 in KY, Abraham must of been born sometime around here.
A cousin has down that they moved to Indiana by 1824, and in a deed book for KY there is a WIlliam Van SIckle that died in 1792 listing heirs as Abraham, Ann, James, MArgaret, and Elizabeth. (James and Sarah was indentured to Thomas Blackburn in 1809)
I was told that if i got ahold of the Vansickle in US book i would be able to find my family.. Well i have seen the book and there is An Abraham in Ohio married a Nancy Crane, but the dates and descendants don't match, if i'm not seeing something let me know. If anyone has any idea about this family from PA or KY or Ind. and KS please email me. Melissa firstname.lastname@example.org
