1764 The will of uncle John Keirl [brother of mother Ann Keirl Rickey] of Bristol Twp, Bucks County, named Thomas Rickey, John Rickey, Alexander Rickey, James Rickey, Keirl Rickey, Rachel and Mary Rickey, Catharine Hutchinson, and Ann Kirkbride as children of Alexander and Ann Rickey and as kinsmen.
