I received an email from a lady inquiring of my Evangeline Wheeler van Sicklen and her possible linkage to her William B. van Sicklen. I see no direct linkage, but elsewhere I did find a possible lineage of John van Sicklen married to Elizabeth Bachelder. Their son was William Bachelder van Sicklen.

This is the data that I have gotten thus far:

William Bachelder VAN SICKLEN

Birth: 10 DEC 1821 in Delaware Co.,New York
Death: 15 AUG 1879 in Lake Odessa, Ionia Co., Michigan
Burial: Lakeside Cemetery, Lake Odessa, Michigan
Mr. William B. Van Sicklen was buried in Lakeside (LakeWood) Cemetery
on August 15,1879 he is listed on page 77of 82 Line43

The three wives were all sisters.

Does any of the above ring any 'bells'?
