In Response To: Re: rickmans from nc ()
Following the excellent leads/clues given by lyndam have you looked at my response to you on the Surname Forum from 11/6/2010?
Your initial post mentions Stokes & Rockingham NC. A look at the area map shows Patrick Co., VA directly north of Stokes Co., NC and Rockingham directly east of Stokes Co., NC. Census records from the above cited post reflects Rickman/Ruckman &, Goins/Goings families in this 'trianglular' area.
Lyndam also points you to Paul Heinegg's research on the FPOC Forum. http://www.freeafricanamericans.com/Virginia_NC.htm
Hopefully your research will connect to the genealogies of the Gowen/Going and Rickman Family's from the VA/NC areas on the FPOC Forum. I have a little information on the Goin-Goings & Rickman surnames of later genearations on my website.
