In case you are still interested, Arthur D. Fickle was my father, Arnold his older brother. They are 2 of the children of William P. Fickle and Hannah Belle Hancher of Sullivan Co, TN. Hannah was the daughter of Joseph Rush Hancher and Tennessee Cross. Joseph was the son of James K. Hancher, a prominent Lutheran pastor in TN. His father, William Hancher, Jr.(1790-1870) was from Frederick or Winchester, VA. There is an extensive Hancher bio on the internet which traces two distinct lines of Hansher/Hanchers. Ours is apparently from Nicholas Henshaw (felon),transported from England in 1720!
