My grandmother was also a Colerick but the family was from the Birmingham, England area and before that it is assumed Ireland. In the mid-1800s, they were in Indiana, Ohio and Nebraska. Family lore stated that 3 brothers had been stowaways but census reports have pretty much disproved that story. My part of the family moved on to Oklahoma before it was a state, on to Oregon in the early 1900s, some went on to Canada, then eventually back to Oklahoma.

My great great grandmother was Eliza Colerick (1834-1919), also from Birmingham/Kidderminster England. Her father and grandfather, both Benjamin, were also from Birmingham.

We have no proof of the Birmingham connection. Family lore also says the family originally came from Ireland.

Hi, I have just stated to trace my ancestors in the name of Collerick.
My g/grandfather was FREDERICK COLLERCK. I understand he was born in the WORCESTER area (no date at present) but lived in Asylem Road Birmingham. He married a SARAH ANN PEPPER in WEST BROMWICH BIRM. in1881They had five children in total.
He was a very clever man and inventor of the Pathfinder Lamp for the Lucus company in Birmingham !
If you think there is a connection please reply. I will update you with further information if you wish. Regards, Jan

Your Colerick was in Birmingham after mine had emigrated. Family lore has it that William M., John W. and Ben were stowaways from England in the 1850s. However, Wm. and John both stated, in Census reports, that they were born in Ohio. I haven't been able to prove either.

I am researching the Colerick line. Which line in OK are you from? I am on the John W. Colerick line. I believe that the reason they said they were born in OH was because of them being stowaways and being shipped back to England. Just a thought.

William and Mahala Colerick were my great grandparents. They were in OK for a time and moved to Oregon in the early 1900s.

I've also wondered about the "originals" saying they were born in OH to avoid being shipped back to England. I was unable to find them in the Census reports, as children.

Do you happen to have all the "real" names of William Harrison's brothers and sisters?? I have that William and Melvina had 12 kids and am coming up with lots of varieties of names. I think I have 6 for sures and 6 maybes. I am in the process of putting your line onto my Family tree software.

The names I have are from a Colerick book written by Fred and Faye Colerick and later edited by Charlene Colerick.

The names are: George A., Nancy E., John Stephen, Francis A., William Harrison, Joshua Lincoln, Grant, Sheridan, Sherman E., Lloyd S., Mary Jane and Charles B.

Do these match with what you have found?

Colerick. Thomas had a son Noah A. Colerick and Noah had son Fred and wife Faye Colerick. So if this helps let me know, as I have a lot of names. I tryed to go under the name in this board of Bette Daugher but no luck. Have a nice day. - Ron
