I am trying to find information on the paternal/maternal lineage of Henry Fickes, born abt 1815 in most likely Adams County, PA. I was told, once, that his father was a Heinrich Fickes, but I am not sure. His mother's name, or nickname, was Eave (Eve) Fickes, and it appears from census records that as early as 1820 she was widowed. Eave appears on the 1850 census under Henry Fickes (Head) listing in Juanita County, PA.
Does this lineage sound familiar to anyone? Henry was married to Rebecca(?); had 8 children: Isaiah, Benjamin, Sarah, Anna, Andrew, Gibson, Jane, and Isabella.
