Crystal - my GG Grandfather is Amo Van Sickle who is the next younger brother of your GGG Grandfather William Van Sickle.

Your posting gave me the first complete list of names of the children of John Van Sickle/Jannet Thompson. If you come up with any detail on Amos and family, I would appreciate it.

Amos b. Sep 3, 1806 in Sussex Co., NJ
d. about 1856
Married twice to what appear to be sisters.
1. Susan Arnold
b. Feb 14, 1828
d. before 1844 - no marriage date
(Only one that I know anything about)
1. Edward Van Sickle (My GGrandfather)
b. Nov 20, 1833 - Sussex NJ
d. July 29, 1909 - Bellflower, ILL
Note: Edward was a farmer all of his life. He also was married twice. 4 children by first marriage and 3 by second. My Grandfather was Edward and Ursula Helmicks youngest child, John Henry VanSickle. He too was a farmer at Fisher, IL his entire life.
2. Thirza (Tansey) Arnold married Mar 20, 1844
b. 1807 d. ?
(Only one that I have found)
Susan b. 1849 in NJ.

I grew up on the farm in Ill. My father was also a farmer. I spent a career in the US Coast Guard and now retired in Seattle.

Any help you can come up with would be appreciated.
