Hi- yes there were the girls for sure who were baptized in Shippensburg, PA. The reason I believe my John Jr. is the son of John & Mary Elizabeth Rudsill Fickes is because my gg aunt wrote in a local history bio. that her grandfather's parents were John Fickes and XXX Reutisille. She didn't know the first name of the mother, but knew the last name. They were from Pennsylvania, and settled in Medina Co. OH where Leah lived and was married to Amos Stoddard. I would love to contact anyone who is researching this family. And I agree- I've seen a lot that doesn't add up, especially on Ancestry.com. I have a lot of documentation, and always looking for more to confirm that John & Mary Fickes had at least 8 children. I can never quite say that I'm 100% sure they are the right parents because I have seen several John & Mary/Elizabeth Fickes' from PA in that time-frame! But I know for sure my John was the son of John and a Reutisille woman. Feel free to contact me (or your cousin) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
