We have been searching for information about Rebecca Fickes for quite some time. I have never heard that there was a previous wife. It makes one wonder which of the children are Rebecca's. Our Frederick Shulenbarger (many spellings!!) was married to Rebecca Fickes. The info (unverified) I have is that MAYBE Rebecca's parents were Isaac Fickes and Rachel Aspen. The Isaac would correspond with their youngest son's name, Isaac, my husband's great grandfather.

Fred was probably born about 1780, probably in Maryland or Virginia.

The birthdate I have for Rebecca is December 10, 1783. Don't know where I got it. She may have been born in Adams County, PA. We know she died January 12, 1857 in Milton Twp., Wayne County, OH. I got documentation for that from a descendant of Sophia, the only person I know who has documentation about that family.

Please contact me! What info do you have about Frederick?
Also interested in where you got the name of Isaac's wife. The info passed down in the family is that Sarah Jane's last name was Woolam/Woolem/Wilhelm.
