I am looking for any information about the Rickerson or Ricketson family. Specifically John Ricketson b.1720. I saw that a book was written by Marvin Rickerson, but I can't find a copy. I would appreciate any info.

Dear Ford,
In Yahoo type www.Ricketson. Scroll down to
William Ricketson and his descendants.

I think your John is listed in the Second
Generation. Jonathan Ricketson, his father.

You can contact me by e-mail

Thank you.

I have a family bible that has Rickerson
in it. I hope this helps you somehow.
The Bible is from Carrie and John Powers from Kentucky.
Under grandparents such names as Johnson,and Rocco are used.
Then under parents names such as Rocco and Duncan are used.
Under the childrens section is Estill B. Rickerson DOB 11/11/1930
Lexington Kentucky.DOD 10/5/1971
I believe he is the son of Mary Coons Rickerson DOB 7/17/1914
Lexington, Ky and her husbands name was Estill B. Rickerson.
Married 1/25/1930 Lexington Ky.

Hope this helped.

Australian Ricketsons etc

Yes, I know of the two volumes of Ricketson's book at the Salem, Ma.

Andrew from Australia told me about them. My husband's mother, Gladys Rickerson, is listed in Volume II.

Thank you for your reply. Sorry I just now saw your message.
