I'm researching in this area too.
This is from my notes on Thomas Bates (1844-1923):
"On 27 December 1870 he married Sarah Berry Ricker at Ricker Hill. Sarah was the daughter of Albion Ricker Sr and Sarah Berry Swett, who were first cousins on their mothers' side (Albion's mother Elizabeth and Sarah's mother Remember were sisters), marrying on 28 April 1842 in Turner. This was not the first marriage between the Rickers and the Swetts however. In about 1819 Ephraim Ricker (first cousin of Albion Sr.) of Buckfield had married Margaret Swett (Sarah Berry Swett’s aunt), also of Buckfield, and in 1822 Almira Ricker (first cousin of both Ephraim Ricker and Albion Sr.) married David Warren Swett (uncle of Sarah Berry Swett and brother of Margaret Swett). Two and a half years after the marriage of Thomas and Sarah Berry, there is another recorded Ricker-Swett marriage that of Sarah Berry Swett’s brother, Danville Decatur Swett, to an Ann Ricker in October 1844, but the connection of Ann to the main Ricker family has not been established – she came from Parsonfield, York, ME rather than Buckfield, so any relationship is likely to be more distant than the others noted above."
Have you found anything more since you posting?
