Michael,
Your message was welcome on the day before Christmas.
News about Lois Bick was really surprising. I continue to hope that we have the correct George Bick, but in his marriage to Maria is said that his father's name was John.
I found a reference to marriage of Henry and Elizabeth Shewell 12 Oct. 1828 at St. Michael, Gloucester (parents of Maria). She was christened 20 Feb. 1831 at St. Nicholas, Gloucester. On her marriage record with George it said that her father's name was Henry.
I found that Rosina Page and her husband moved to Wales and they lived in more than one city (or town) there. One can trace them through the censuses.
Then I looked up Rosina Page in Google.com and found her in a list of Gloucester City transactions. It had: Contract of Sale from Mrs. Rosina Page, 45 Fairfield Ave., Victoria Park Cardiff, widow to William Hobbs 32 Vicorage St., purchaser the property at 16 Upton St. (formerly No. 8 Church St.). Purchase price 110 pounds. Date 12 Nov. 1917.
Since Maria and George seemed to have lived on Church St.,
it looks like Rosina inherited that propery and sold it when her mother died.
I recently found that George Bick lived with my grandfather and grandmother for many years after his Irish-American wife burned to death (she died 1902 and he died 1928). He was some sort of foreman for a railroad.
Have a wonderful Christmas this year.
Best wishes,
Larry
