I am looking into the Ohio Fickle's. My husband is a descendant of William Y Fickle who married Sarah (Fulkerson) not sure if this is her maiden name. He was born about 1828, I have him married in IL 1857 and shows up in California 1866 on the voters registry. I believe the Homestead Act of 1862 brought him to CA, he has a patent on date 25 Aug 1896 for San Luis Obispo Co where he got some acres. I have him through the 1900 census, after that I cant find him or his wife.
I don't have any leads to his other children or his parents, I do know one son Alvin Wooster Baker Fickle who was born in Utah in 1860. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
