Re: Rickman
In Response To: Re: Rickman ()



"Do you know what happened to Abner?"


Sadly I do not. He is not with Telitha in 1850 and I cannot find him prior to that year (or after). I have looked under both names (see below).


"Did he also use the name Abe, as was mentioned in his daughter Cora Rickman's, (my gr gr grandmother) death certificate. It has Abe Rickman as her father and Telitha Elam as her mother."


I believe Cora's father and Telitha's husband's name to be Abram (Abraham) RICKMAN. "Abner" came from a source early in my research and since Abner is a popular name among RICKMANs it made sense. Since that response I've come to believe his name is most likely Abram (Abe).


Family Fabric...

Abram & Telitha ELAM RICKMAN are the ancestors (great, great, great grandparents) of Anita L. DEFRANTZ, Olympic medal winner and current member (selected over Peter UEBERROTH and Donna DE VARONA) and past Vice-President of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) etc. etc.
