Re: Rickman? immigrant ancestor

In Reply to: Re: Rickman? immigrant ancestor by Eva Green of 888

Here's what I have through 8 generations down. If you look at Dr. Rick's wife, Sarah van Meter, you find royality that goes on for ever. Where do you fit in? Many Rickmans came through the mountains of NC where my family stayed until the 1900s. Still many relatives there. Texas was the place to go after the Civil war. Tom Merrell
