Starting Sept. 5, 2014, Genealogy.com will be making a big change. GenForum
message boards, Family Tree Maker homepages, and the most popular articles
will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will
no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.
My great grandmother was Lovina Fickes and she was married to Edward
Thompson. Their children were James, John (my ancestor), Lizzie Thompson Dyer, Esther Thompson Hart, and Melissa Thompson Deckard. At least part of the children were born in Columbus, Ohio. My grandfaher, John Camel Thompson, was born on 11/20/1851, died on 7/10//1924, and married Mary Elizabeth Wishart on 1/6/1877 in Morgan County, Indiana. They lived on a farm east of Trilla, in Coles County, Illinois. If this sounds like the same Fickes family, I would appreciate hearing from you as I would like to know more about the family. Thank you.
