Keen to find descendants of Ficklins from 'Rochester Hall'. James Ficklin married Kathleen McPherson, actress, daughter of Duncan McPherson, of Bristol, England, sister of Mervyn McPherson, MGM's UK representative through 1920s-1950s. James and Kathleen's son, James Ernest Mervyn Ficklin, was born in Paris, 14th April, 1928.

'Assume family descendants may still be in the US and would be keen to hear from any, particularly with news of Kathleen's children, now grandchildren.

Information relating to the McPhersons on the English side, Kathleen included, can be found in my father's book, Bimbashi McPherson 'A Life in Egypt' (BBC Publications 1982, and linked BBC series).
