Hi Dave,
I have some information about the Ricker family from a 2 volume set titled "A Genealogy of the Ricker Family" by Percy Leroy Ricker and Elwin R. Holland, printed by Heritage Books, Inc.. Here is the line from Gershom Parker Ricker, notice the spelling, that is how it is in the books.

Gershom Parker Ricker m. Laura J. Gibson

William Ricker m. Olive Johnson

Gershom Ricker, Jr. m. 1st Lydia Hamilton they had 4 children
m. 2nd Nancy Parker they had one child (William)

Gershom Ricker m. Anna Garland, he was a solder in the Revolutionary War

Paul Ricker m. Abigail Hodgdon, I am from Paul's younger brother Daniel's line

John Ricker m. Hannah Garland, not sure if Hannah is related to grandsons' wife Anna, probably would be my guess

George Ricker m. Eleanor Evans, George is the immigrant that started our line here in the states.

I would like to have given you the dates and any notes that are in the book, but my typing skills are poor and time consuming. If you would like the dates and such I will be glad to type them up in my data base along with the rest of the Ricker info I have, and then e-mail them to you in a report or file to be used as you wish. If I am going to type all that info I wouldn't mind doing it once and also in a format that I can use since we are from the same line. And I would be happy to share the info with anyone else that is interested as well. I hope this helps and please e-mail me if there is more I can help with.
