Note: [ralphroberts.ged] [roberts.GED] [ddandrm.ged] PIONEERS "Among the many other first-comers were Arrington and Robert Wickliffe and their nephews, Colonel Moses Wickliffe and J. W. I. Godman. Arrington and Robert Wickliffe were sons of John Wickliffe, of Prince William County, Virginia. They settled in northeastern Muhlenberg about 1800, where Robert died in February 1820. Both were influential pioneers. Arrington Wickliffe was born in Virginia in 1750. He was an officer in the Revolutionary army, and took part in many of the battles. Shortly after the Revolution he married Catherine Davis, daughter of Captain Jesse Davis, of Virginia. In the winter of 1819--20 he rode from Muhlenberg to his old home in Virginia on horseback and returned a few weeks later and died, as a result of the exposure, in March 1820. He was the father of ten children, one of whom was William B. Wickliffe, who was born near South Carrollton February 15, 1808, and died in Greenville, July 12, 1892. William B. Wickliffe was at one time a large landowner and slave-holder. He was the father of William A. Wickliffe, of Greenville. ---"The History of Muhlenberg County" page 22
