       *Children:

1.  Richard Cunningham McCORMICK, b.4 Dec.1866,

       *Leander James McCormick in his “Family Record and Biography” p.24: has Richard Cunningham McCORMICK III, b.4 Dec.1866, as the son of Alfred Decker and Sarah Elizabeth, but he is probably the son of his brother Richard Cunningham McCormick II and Margaret Hunt.  When Margaret Hunt died in 1867 Richard III  came to live with his uncle because Richard II was so busy in Arizona and not in the disposition to take care of the infant.

       Another clue is that Elizabeth (2nd wife of Richard II) put Richard C. III on her passport as her son ... because she was his step-mother and the McCormick name was by then important.

 

1850c. US Census for North Hempstead, Queens, NY (20 September 1850) lists G. Van Wicklen, age 42, farmer with wife, Ann E., 37, and the following children: Richard, 16, Wm McKey, 13, Jacob, 10, Sarah, 7, Phebe, 6, Lewis, 4, and Margaret, 7 months. Also listed in this household are Jacob Van Wicklin, 26, male, black and Sarah Van Wicklin, 16, female, black. Could the latter two individuals be black servants or slaves of Garret Van Wicklin?
