Hi Michelle,

I can't recall where Herkimer is just now. My wife's Sickles lived in
Columbia Co, and then Hastings, Oswego Co. Some remained in Columbia,
and some came to Wisconsin ca 1843 from Hastings. There are still a few
Sickles here in WI, but ca 1870's, after the burned-out land and wheat
weavils ruined the wheat farming, they sold out to mostly German
immigrants, and moved to Iowa, etc.

If you're new to Sickles digging, let me inform you that there are those
who mostly descended from the Sickles of New Amsterdamn (kinda Dutch),
and there is a smaller group descended from a reported Oneida Indian -
William Sickles - These mostly have roots in Oneida Co., NY, the
Iroquois Reserve in Ontario, or Oneida, WI. The first New Amsterdam
Sickles was one Zacharias Sickles who came to N.A. from Curacao with
Peter Stuyvesant. Yes, that Peter Stuyvesant. Zach was a corporal in
Pete's army.

Good Luck, Jim
