Re: Van Sickles in Michigan

In Reply to: Re: Van Sickles in Michigan by Bruce Van Sickle of 1583

I am interested in any information on the Van Sickle family in Michigan.
Our family name took a turn when all girls were born to
Frank Montague Van Sickle, b. 1877, d. 1930, Livingston Co. Michigan
His line is listed as: father and back
[Edgar Van Sickle, b. 1845, d. 1915, Plainfield, Livingston Co. Michigan
Samuel Furman,b.1803, d..1873,Plainfield, Livingston Co. Michigan
James Furman Rynier,b.1777, d.?
Rynier,b. 1749, d.1823
Reinier, b.1661, d.?
Ferdinandus Van Sicklen ,b.1635,d. 1712]
Is this the correct line as it goes?
I have a family bible which takes me to Rynier Van Syckel, b.1749
Uncle Charles Delamater [,whom married one of Frank's daughters, Eugenia]researched his wife's family using,
1. History of the Van Sickle Family by John W. Van Sickle , published in 1880.
2.The family bible as his link, he writes:
Mrs. Louisa [Vansyckel]Lange, has the family bible which contains family records, one reads: Rynier Vansyckel was born Nov. 28, 1740. This is identical to one of the last records of this family in the Van Sickle Genealogy, which makes a positive link with the original ancestor, Ferdinandus Van Sickle.
This record and those that follow were written by Rebecca Furman[or members of her family] who married Rynier Vansyckel. Some of these records are the same or similar to those found in the Vansickle Genealogy, which gives added proof of the identity of this family.
Would love to share information on this line, if we have a match. Thank you for your post.
