In Reply to: SUSAN RICKS , 1843-1892 NC by Annette F. Ferguson of 789

Following is the only Susan Ricks known to me in Guilford Records at the period you mentioned, Annette:

22 July 1850, Southern Division, p. 263, line 5, Guilford County.
117 RIX, Joshua 35 M Blacksmith Guilford, NC [1815]
, Martha [Palmer] 38 F Guilford, NC [1812]
, William 14 M Guilford, NC [1836]
, Minerva 11 F Guilford, NC
, Nancy 8 F Guilford, NC
, Pleasant 5 F Bradley, TN
, Susan 2 F Guilford, NC
WHITE, Isaac 40 M Shoemaker Guilford, NC
JINKEN, Laton 22 M Shoemaker Guilford, NC
JORDAN, Robert 22 M Shoemaker Guilford, NC
[His neighbors were Henry Kersey, age 36, and Polly Mitchell, age 50. Others in the general area were Thomas
manning, Clarkson Tomlinson, Samuel Hunt, Mordecai Mendenhall.] The folk were Quakers, so it is possible Susan was also a
Quaker. However, her father is not included in local Quaker records.

17 July 1860, Greensboro P. O., p. 101, line 38
709 RICKS, Joshua 45 M Blacksmith $750 Guilford, NC
, Martha? 48 F Guilford, NC
, Pleasant 15 M Guilford, NC
, Susan 12 F Guilford, NC
, Sarah 7 F Guilford, NC
[Pleasant A. Ricks died 12 March 1862 while serving in the Civil War at Lynchburg, Va.]

My ancestor, Jonas Ricks, Sr., was a charter menber of Springfield Meeting, but there were no Susans in our family.
