will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will
no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.
Significant progress has been made in compiling the genealogy of the descendants of Richard Beckerdite/Bickerdick, who married Mary Wright in Frederick County, Maryland, in 1776, and moved to Randolph County, N.C., shortly after the birth of their son John at Frederick, Md., in 1777. Research continues in an effort to link Richard to Richard Bickerdike who married Ann Smith in 1704 and died at Annapolis, Anne Arundel County, Md., in 1719. Correspondence and inquiries regarding 19th-century Beckerdites and Bickerdikes are welcomed by <GeorgeERussell@msn.com>
