bullet  General Notes:

PARENTAGE: There is no actual proof that Warren is a son of John Wickham. However, census records suggest some connection between Warren and John Wickham. Also, some researchers have speculated that Warren was a brother of Mary Wickham Farringham, who appears to be a daughter of John WIckham.

1987 LETTER FROM CHUCK & FRANCES MERRY TO MARY ANN MARASICK, Waterford, PA;
"Rensselaer Co, N.Y. is, was and has always been a big problem as far as our research is concerned. The patroon system around Albany more or less precluded ownership of land by the settlers, so records go from scanty to non-existant. John Wickham as well as Benjamin, Warren and William Wickham and Thomas Balis were leaseholders in the Manor of Rensselaerwyck. This we learned from a deed from one Van Rensselaer to another, in which the property description included at least 5 pages of lease holders, front and back. Ebenezer Merry was also a lease holder in said Manor (in 1789, 1793 & 1794), as was his son William."

1990 LETTER FROM CHUCH & FRANCES MERRY TO EMMETT R. WELLS:
"We can follow a John Wickham through Rensselaer Co, N.Y. by means of a deed from one Van Rensselaer to another in which at least 5 pages of leases were used as part of the property description. (Res. Co. Deeds 77:400 John Wickham 65th lease, Benjamin and Warren Wickham jointly 73rd lease)."

Chapter 10:
In addition to the above settlers, a number of families located in this vicinity who were rather transient settlers. Among them were Abraham Van Buren, Peter Van Buren, Peter Dingman, Luke Salisbury, Edward McGraw, Christopher McGraw, Warren Wickham.
Chapter 12:
About 1822, Warren Wickham came to this settlement and purchased a lease lot, constructed a saw mill, went to lumbering and soon sold to Isaac Rowland and he sold to Mr. Edson and purchased another place and lived on it a few years, then returned to Middlefield.
About 1824, the people of that vicinity organized a school district, purchased a log house of Warren Wickham and converted it into a school house and Ann Richman, a daughter of Elder Richman, was the first one that taught the first school in that district.
Chapter 14:
Mrs. Farrington's father, Old Mr. Wickham, as he was generally called, was a remarkable man for longevity. Mr. Wickham lived to the age of 102 years. He died very suddenly, was very smart and retained his faculties until he dropped dead. The day he was one hundred years old, he married his second wife, and his appearance was like a man at sixty. The woman he married was in her eighties.
The next year after Mr. Farrington arrived at his place three other families migrated from Columbia and settled in the same neighborhood. Warren Wickham, the Balis family, and the Merry family all raised large families.
