Thanks for responding, I will check out your site. I know nothing on the
Ricketts, just that Rachel Ricketts married Robert McKinley Baskin. I have
checked on census records in Wilson co., but not connected anything, nor
found Rachel with parents.

Thanks again,
Nelda Thompson

Your RICKETTS family MAY be from Burke Co., NC. Ellenor ALLISON (daughter
of Richard ALLISON and Sarah CHESHIRE) was married to Robert RICKETTS in
1778 in Montgomery Co., MD. The ALLISON and RICKETTS families moved to
Burke Co., NC.

Robert RICKETTS died in Burke County, NC. In 1802, Posey ALLISON (son of
Benjamin, and cousin to Ellenor) was ordered to take charge of the orphan
children of Robert RICKETTS until the next court, and bring all the male
children to wit: Robert and William RICKETTS to the next court. In 1803,
Burch RICKETTS, age 14, was bound to Posey ALLISON.

My William ALLISON (son of Benjamin and also cousin to Ellenor) settled in
Wilson County, TN . There are a number of RICKETTS in Wilson County that
were within about 50 households of William ALLISON's widow Elizabeth in
1850. Whether the RICKETTS of Wilson County are part of the RICKETTS in
Burke Co., NC I don't know. You can see information on my ALLISON family
