LETTER FROM STELLA J. MILLSLAGLE, Coon Rapids, IA, June 17, 1941: "regarding the Wickhams who settled in and around Hardin and Grundy Counties, near Eldora and Steamboat Rock, respectively. They are not exactly blood relation of mine, but perhaps I can give you information which will lead you to those who are. This Eliza Millslagle, who married Bimuel Wickham, is (or was) my father's sister, and Samuel Millslagle, who married Hannah Wickham was his half-brother. Whether Catherine, Rebecca, and Nancy were nieces of his, I don't know, but I do know they were not his sisters. Both Aunt Eliza and Uncle Bim have been dead for years, and they had a son, whose name I can't recall, but I think it was William, He had a son Earl, but I can't tell you his exact whereabouts, now."
"P. S. This Mrs. Claire Quiggle, of Milo, IA, can give you information about the Nancy you mention. I just dimly remember that she re-married, upon the death of her first husband (Ott Wickham, I presume), her second husband being a Grant McPherson and their family all lived in Chicago.
P. S. (again) There was a Win Wickham, of Steamboat Rock (deceased) who was closely related to the rest.; his children live around IA, in scattered places. His oldest son was Arthur. If you would write to Mrs. Dora Greenlief, Ft. Dodge, IA, you might get in touch with them. There is also a Mrs. Bertha Wickam, of Iowa Falls, IA. I think she is the daughter-in-law of Bimuel and Aunt Eliza, and she would, be able to tell you of their family."
Catherine married Asahel Marvin "Acel" WICKHAM, son of William Johnson WICKHAM and possibly Sarah (---), in 1833 in probably Monroe Co, OH.1 (Asahel Marvin "Acel" WICKHAM was born Cal 23 Mar 1810 in Milford Twp, Otesgo Co, NY,2 6 died on 26 Mar 1880 in Steamboat Rock, Clay Twp, Hardin Co, IA 5 and was buried in Steamboat Rock Cem, Steamboat Rock, Hardin Co, IA 5.)
