Thank you. I was the one that added Morella to Find A Grave. I had passed along the obituary to the now caretaker of the tribute.

Morella was the daughter of Jacob BARNHART and Mary SKIVER. Her husband, James Van Sickle (1844-1930) was the son of Andrew. Not much is known about Andrew. He may be the Andrew SICKLES listed in Athens Co. OH in 1850. James's mother is unknown. His stepmother was Susan SKIVER. She and Andrew VS were married in Hocking Co. OH in 1852.
