The Rickards Branch of the Welburn Family 

Alice A. Welburn, and her twin brother Isaac, were born in September 12, 1859 in the farming community of Blackwater. She is Mary & George's 12th child known to survive to adulthood. Alice makes her first appearance in the Federal Census of 1870.

Around 1877 she married George Handy Rickards (born October 17, 1855), the son of Levin Rickards.  1880 Census records show Alice & George residing in the Baltimore Hundred. George was employed as a sawmill laborer, but at the time was in some way maimed or disabled. They remained in Delaware through the mid 1880's, relocated to the Newtown Township of Delaware County, Pennsylvania, and rented a home while George worked as a farm laborer. Later he earned a living as a hod carrier.

There were reportedly 11 children born during their marriage. Eight survived to adulthood. Alice A. Welburn-Rickards died May 12, 1918. George Handy Rickards died January 18, 1919 in Berwyn, PA. Below the descendants outline is the last Census appearance for Alice & George. Click on the image to enlarge.
