I took this information from a wonderful book of geneology of the Beach/Vickers family done many years ago by a Mrs. Earl M. Evleth. There is much more information in this book on the Vickers family which I am more than willing to share with anyone interested. The book has some interesting stories and pictures. It appears to be well documented. Hope this helps someone.

K Vickers: I've just entered the electronic age (Internet) and its use as a tool in family history. I read your homepage with interest. I have been unable to trace my family further back than Archibald Vickers who was born o/a 1803, possibly in Loudoun County Virginia. He married Cynthia Spencer, who is believed to have been born in Washington County Virginia. Together they migrated to Zanesville Ohio and had eight children. My ancestor is Wirley Adam Vickers. Archibald and Cynthia moved to Missouri and in 1861 were killed by bushwackers in the Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri. I have not been able to trace Cynthia's roots back either. If you have any information from other Vickers on any Archibald Vickers, please let me know. Thank you, Cindy (VICKERS) Treadway jayremax@erols.com

My name is Georgia Vickers. I'm trying to find other Vickers. I really don't have much information as I've just started my search. Here is what I know: Farthest back is my Grandfather, Archibald Leslie Vickers b. 1872 in Cheviot, OH. He had siblings named Emma, Fred, Annie, Mary, Rosy and Winnie. My grandfather married Gertrude Curran in Manitoba in 1904 and became a naturalized Canadian in 1908. My father, Glenn Overton Vickers was born in Saskatoon SK in 1915. Do you or any of your cousins have these names in any branch of your family tree? Thanks for your help. Georgia Vickers, gvickers@siteconnect.com

Hi!  Just viewed your page with interest.  Like Cynthia Vickers Treadway, I am looking for the parents of Archibald Vickers and Cynthia Spencer, who migrated from VA to OH to MO and were killed during the Civil War.  I am also searching for more information regarding their deaths.  While I am following several leads locally (I live in MO and have access to the State Archives), I would appreciate hearing from anyone else following the same leads/looking for or possessing the same information.

Thanks!
