Happy Hunting and God Bless
William R. Rickson Hello. I was doing family research in SLC history library this weekend and found no documenting info on William R. Rickson but did find in 1870 census he was no where to be found but his wife Miraiah and children were in Goodson, Washington Co. Virginia living with her father Henery Moree. Does not list marital status. I also found evidence in a Jesse Miller diary that he was present when his youngest son was born, William Edward in 1867 Goodson, Washington, Virginia. In the 1880 Census the family was also still present in Goodson, Washington, Virginia but no indication of William R. Rickson - but it did state that she was a widow at this time. We did a complete search of info avaliable of the area and found no death, burial or cemetery records for him. I think the marker just might be in his memory and that he actually is not buried there. Thanks, Carolyn Keller
William R. Rickson Hello, I have a question about your William R. Rickson - in 1870 we have his death in Washington County, Virginia - how is it that he is buried in Betonville, Missouri? Why would they haul him across country to do this? It says there is no stone - but I really wonder if he is buried there? Thoughts? Thanks, Carolyn Keller
RE: 143518034 That would presumably be his actual age at death, though we can't rule out an error. It's a little odd that there was such a gap between death and burial, even given that he apparently died some distance from Richmond.
