Rickman? immigrant ancestor

According to an article written about Plum Grove, Jefferson co., Kansas printed in the Kansas Historical Soc. Quarterly:

James Henry Rickman (1828-1880) stated he was of Scoth-Irish ancestry and there was a tradition that his first immigrant ancestor crossing to the New World had been shipwrecked and saved his life by a stupendous effort, swimming and keeping afloat many hours till he was picked up.

James was the son of: William Rickman (1797-) and Artymeesee (Farley? Whitaker?) (1801-).

William was the son of: Jesse Rickman (1770-1860) & Mary Trantham (1771-1837)

Jesse was perhaps the son of: Dr. William Rickman (1731-1783)

Mary Trantham was the daughter of: Martin Trantham & Ann Shattock.

Martin was the son of another Martin Trantham (d. 1783)

I am wondering who was this immigrant ancestor who swam ashore.
