Do any of you Ryckmans know anything about a Charles Ryckman who last lived, and died (1978) in Spokane Washington? He was my grandfather and he is as far back as I know about any Ryckmans other than the 5 of Us. His second wife's name was Ruth, I think. They had two sons that live in St. Louis, MO (still). My father was from Charles' first marriage (to Katherine Seitz) and my father's name, as well as my oldest brother's name, were/is Charles. Just thought I'd take a stab at this business! We feel kinda alone in what apparently is a North America full of Dutch Ryckmans. It would seem most of you descended from the Ryckmans of NY.
Just Curious and there are 10 Ryckman children from Myself and my three brothers. My sister's kids, of course, are not Ryckmans.
