Hi Gail. I can't say for certain that your John Fickes is the same as my John Fickes, but I tend to think so. My John Fickes, was b. 1781 in PA per 1850 IL census records. His first wife's name was "Reutisille" - first name not known. I believe she was probably Mary Elizabeth Rudisill. John Fickes had two known sons, Jacob Fickes, b. 1810 in PA, and John Jr., b. abt 1816 in OH or PA (census records say both). Leah Fickes Stoddard did live in IL for a while, didn't she? I'm not sure where off hand. Tracking down John Fickes has been difficult because the court house in Coles Co. burned down in the late 1800's, so many records were destroyed. Anyway, I have a bit more on John Fickes Sr. if you think this is the same person. Just e-mail me directly. I also have more on Mary Elizabeth Rudisill. Hope to hear from you!
