PARENTAGE: There is no proof that Ebenezer is the son of William J. Wickham but Ebenezer appears to be a brother, or close relative, of Salathiel and Asahel Marvin Wickham. In 1837 Salathiel, Asahel Marvin and Ebenezer Wickham all purchased adjacent land in Noble Co, OH. Both Asahel Marvin & Ebenezer listed their residence as Muskingum Co, OH. (William J. Wickham was the only male descendant of John Wickham who was living in Muskingum Co at this early time, although there were Wickham descendants of Thomas Wickham the Immigrant who were living in Muskingum Co.)
Perhaps William J. Wickham died in 1837 and left each son an inheritance that they used to buy land.
Also, in 1850 both Salathiel Wickham's family and Ebenezer's presumed widow, Hannah, and her Wickham children lived in District 29, Lee Co, IA.
