RICKMAN, ROBINSON posted by Michelle Flanders (-Otey) on Friday, October 10, 1997

Uriah and Ora or Orah(?) RICKMAN lived in Carthagena, Ohio, around the late 1800s. I do not know if they were born there. Uriah RICKMAN may have been part French and Indian. His wife may have been part African-American and Indian, or had some Indian in her. They had approx. 14 children including my great grandmother, Catherine RICKMAN. Catherine married Pearl ROBINSON whom I believe also came from Carthagena. Pearl ROBINSON had a step or half sister named Zoe. Pearl ROBINSON and Catherine RICKMAN had 4 children (Viola ROBINSON, William ROBINSON, Cecile (F) ROBINSON, and Uriah ROBINSON), and eventually moved to Lorain, OH. Other possibly related names include Ina Jane RICKMAN, Mary Anna RICKMAN, Ida Belle RICKMAN, and Carl Wilson RICKMAN. If you have any information on any of the above individuals, please e-mail me.
