Hi Joe,
Thanks for writing to me Joe...the parent's of this William Ricker that married Ursula Shelton isn't known...
I feel sure that he is related to my *Peter Ricker...maybe a grandson, but which son isn't known...
Peter and Peggy had a son named William Ricker that I used to think was this William that married Ursula Shelton...but, Peter and Peggy's son was killed in New Orleans during the War of 1812.
Here is what Rich Nallenweg wrote about this William Ricker...and also our cousin, Raylene Cheatham.
I copied something from the Tennessee Archives in Nashville that concerned William Ricker. His property was evidently inherited by his brothers and sisters. They were selling 160 acres of land in the Arkansas Territory to John Dickson the 18th of September, 1826. The deed of conveyance was from Jacob Ricker, George Ricker, Frederick Ricker, Martin Ricker, John Ricker, Joshua Willet and Rachel (his wife), Philip Smithers and Ephs (his wife),Solomon Fann and Polly (his wife), Michael Crum and Hulda (his wife). Philip Evert and Peggy (his wife), heirs at law of William Ricker Decd. This property was in the northwest 1/4 of section 35 of township seven north in range 13 west and founded on warrant 25.886.
At least this information gives a record of who the Ricker sisters were married to. Its too bad the wives of the Ricker brothers were not mentioned.

Raylene **************************************************************************** Here is what I have on William Ricker, son of Peter and Margaret.

War of 1812, Bounty Land Warrant #25-886, private 7th infantry.
Treasury Dept., Ward Auditor's office, 20 Dec 1824, William Ricker enlisted 4 July 1813 in Capt. Allen's Company, 7th regiment infantry for 5 years, and died 18 Feb 1815 in hospital in New Orleans.

MARRIAGE: never married according to Greene Co, TN, Court record July Sessions 1818, 27 July 1818. This document lists his brothers and sisters.
It states that he enlisted in the 24th regiment of US infantry under Capt.
Alex A. White.
{This info is from Rich Nallenweg - RNallenweg@aol.com Have you ever written to Kenneth Wilds? He is also a descendant of this William Ricker...
Mr. Kenneth Charles Wilde

San Bernardino, California 92410-5111
Here is all of the info that I have on this family...sorry that it isn't more and that I couldn't help more with this family...
Please keep in touch and maybe one day we will be able to find out who William's parent's were?

Notes for WILLIAM RICKER:
This is not the William Ricker that is the s/o Peter and Peggy Ricker....

He died on 9 Jun 1864 in Barnes Branch, Big Laurel, Madison Co, NC and was buried in Tweed Cemetery, Chapel Hill, Madison Co, NC.

Russell married Mary Magdalene Ricker, daughter of William Ricker and Ursula Shelton, on 15 Oct 1842 in , Yancy Co., NC. Mary was born on 18 Apr 1823 in Big Laurel, Madison, NC. She died on 22 Oct 1914 in Madison Co, NC and was buried in Franklin Cem., Gunter Town, Madison Co, NC.

To my knowledge, there is only one Mary Magdelena and she was a RICKER.

(There is/was a very large RICKER family in Greene Co, TN, and she was

descended from them.) Her death certificate listed her as Mary Magdalene

FRANKLIN and gives her parents as "John" RICKER [John William?] and Ersley

SHELTON. I've seen it before, but have no idea where the GENTRY connection

may have been added as the records show her name before marriage thru her

life, and at her death as either RICKER or FRANKLIN.
