Dear Richard: Annalisa's descent is at least from Peter in the JWVS book, as is mine. Mr. Van Curen makes the descent Ferdenandus to Johannes, to Ferdinand (informed speculation) to Peter, and from then on in JW's book it is Peter to Cornelius to Isaiah to Volney (in my case) or to Eliza Jane (in Annalisa's case). I'm aware of the Sickles-Van Sickle mixup, and certainly agree with you about the work of Gene Van Sickle. I'm also aware that not all that John Waddell wrote is true. But I think her question is with the newly published indexed version of JW's book. I have not seen it; perhaps she has not been able to find the proper entries. I find it hard to believe that the entire last chapter of JW's book, comprising the descendants of Peter Van Sickle would have been left out of the new index.
