There are several William Bickings decended from John Frederick Bicking 1730-1809. You might want to trace back in his family to see if one of them married your relative. She may have married into one of his 5 son's families.

Yes I am directly related. We are putting together a concise family history currently. We have information mainly on our family as well as families in Bremer County Iowa.

Johann Heinrich Meyerhoff was the son of Johann Otto Meyerhoff (1743-1805) and Anna Dorthea Senne ( ? - 1817). He married Sophie Elonore Wilkening. I am not sure if he had other brothers/sisters (any help would be helpful there). Johann Heinrich Christian was his full name. He and Sophie had 7 children, three of which died in infancy. The oldest was Johann Heinrich Christian (1799-1879).

What information would be helpful to you? What information do you have?
