Pickers from the Helpringham area of Lincolnshire

Is anyone is interested in the offspring of William Picker, believed born circa 1857 in Helpringham Lincs, his first wife was Anna Maria Wimpress and second wife Mary, Moulds , born 1782, Swaton (nr Helpringham) Lincs? I am descended from William and Mary's second son, Frederick, bapt'd Helpringham 23 Apr 1810 who became a salesman and went to live in Manchester.

Frederick had a younger brother Francis, born 1814, who followed in his father's footsteps and became a stone and brick mason. Francis married Elizabeth ? from Billingborough, Lincs and they had a large family some of whom were born in the USA. After the marriage of Francis and Elizabeth they lived in the village of Horbling (nr Swaton) but were in the States by 1860, first Ohio, later Indiana, where Francis died in 1893.

I have some background information on the Picker's of Helpringham, which I'd be happy to share. I also visit the area quite often, so would be happy to discuss this with anyone who has these family links but can't make a trip to the area.
