From Larrick Family Genealogy Descendents of Joseph and Rebecca Larrick Johnson County, Kansas by Dola V. Larrick, Sr. 1961


      I, Dola V. Larrick, Sr., was instructed by a unanimous vote of the Larrick Reunion at their gathering in 1959 at Edgerton, Kansas to get together and write up a Larrick geneaology, which I have done by sending out questionaires to be returned. The questionaires allowed me to make a complete record of their families. A few were not returned and several could not be contacted, which made a partial listing of their families or no mention at all.
      Of special mention are some of the following:
      A monument erected by the D.A.R. in honor of Caspar Larrick in Larrick row in Mount Olive Cemetery near Hayfield, Virginia on September 25, 1960. He served in the Revolutionary Army from 1773 to 1776.
      Robert Jackson was a Revolutionary soldier as shown in this geneaology. He was born March 17, 1733 in Ireland and died September 28, 1809. His daughter Mary, born February 24,1761, died March 30, 1835, married James Thompson April 15, 1779. Their son Abraham, born
September 3, 1796, died April 28, 1873, married Rachel MeCreary December 17, 1818 and their daughter Rebecca Thompson married Joseph Larrick. The rest of the descendants can be traced down through this geneaology. This makes a double line for membership in the D.A.R. for the Johnson County, Kansas family.
      In the Historical Register of Virginia in the Revolution, it speaks of John Larrick, Frederick Mil. rec. as Captain August 4, 1779.
The descendants of Caspar Larrick and his wife Elizabeth Sundown, an Indian lass, shows the true French-Indian frontiersmanship of those days, and the beautiful handwriting that has shown up several times in the family
      There were three Larricks who appeared in "Who's Who in America" for all of the 1950's. They were George Larrick, Commissioner of the Pure Food and Drug Administration in Washington, D. C., Thomas Larrick, Professor of Architecture in Florida University, Gainesville, Florida. I have lost the name of the other who was with C. E. in New York State.
      Jacob Larrick and his wife Catherine Spillman Larrick gave the land from their home place for the Lutheran Church and cemetery at Mt. Zion, Ohio.


      Casper, John, George and James Larrick were the four brothers that canie to this countrv as French Huguenots from the province of Alsace-Lorraine, where they had been chased out because of
their religion. The family was very wealthy in France but left all behind and settled in the Jersey Isles or Ireland. The ship listed their last name as La Roque "natives of France but by the grace of Her Majesty, Queen Anne, their abode was England". Landing at New Castle, Delaware about 1755, they proceeded to York, Pennsylvania where they settled but soon moved to Frederick County, Virginia. We find the first purchase of land from Lord Fairfax before 1760 was under the name ofJohn Laruck, but in the second purchase the name was Larrick in 1760.
      John settled near Middletown in Frederick County, Virginia and Casper at Stephens City just a few miles to the north where Casper bought and sold several pieces of property before he went on west to Timberridge near North Mountain and U.S. 50 now passes through it between Capon Bridge, West Virginia and Gore, Virginia.
      Tradition has it, as passed down, that Casper went deer hunting near the then Indian village of Capon Springs, West Virginia where he shot a deer, and the deer injured Casper. An Indian girl by the name of Elizabeth Sundown found him and nursed him back to health. He married the Indian lass in 1772.
      Casper was born about 1730 in France and was 26 years old when he came to this country. His will was set in order in 1801.
      I understand that Elizabeth Sundown had a very pretty handwriting and this crops out many times in the Larrick descendants. One in the name of Estelle Larrick Rees of the Johnson County, Kansas bunch.
      I have nothing on the first George and James was believed to have never married.
      I have just found this note in the Historical Register of Virginia in the Revolution which reads John Larrick, Frederick Mil. rec. as Captain August 4, 1779.

      Casper Larrick, born about 1730 in France, came to Virginia about 1755, died about 1801, married an Indian girl named Elizabeth Sundown in 1772. He joined the Revolutionarv Army in 1773, serving for three years, mostly around Lake Erie near Cleveland, Ohio. To this union were born:
      Jacob Larrick, born June 30, 1773 in Virginia, died about 1843 at Mt. Zion, Ohio. (His children will be camed on down in the Ohio section of this book.)
      John Larrick (Wife's first name was Catherine.)
      Leah Larrick, married Joseph Daily in 1790.
      Catherine Larrick, married John Moore in 1790.
      Henry Larrick, born about 1779, married Margaret Ann Cody, a cousin of Buffalo Bill Cody. He lived in the Timberridge and North Mountain area. To this union were born the following ten children: (I do not have any dates on this family.)
            James Larrick, born in Virginia, moved to Glenwood, Ohio, which is near Mt. Zion, Ohio. He was the father of Asa Larrick who moved to Iowa and later to Logan, Kansas in an early day. Asa's son Seywood of Lenora, Kansas was a real frontiersman. Seywood drove great herds of cattle across Western Kansas from Western Texas before the day of the railroads. He also hunted buffalo by the thousands. In later years he owned several banks and many sections of land. Seywood's only son died in the Navy during the flu epidemic of World War I. He was a student at Washburn College and his father Seywood erected a bronze water fountain with a circle seat around the fountain in honor of his son and other Washburn students that died in World War I on the Washburn campus at Topeka, Kansas.
            Asa Larrick, born in Virginia, no dates, eleven children.
                  One was John Wesley Larrick and leads down to the Larrick atLamar, Colorado.
                  Another son David went to Red Cloud and Bladen, Nebraska, where there are four generations. They raised registered Hereford cattle.
                  Another son Isaac was a dentist at Oberlin, Kansas.
                  I understand that Jonah Larrick of Richmond, Virginia and the late Rev. A. R. Larrick of Plant City, Florida, who died in 1960, comes in on this line.
I have nothing on the rest of Henry's family, which follows:
      John H. Larrick
      David Larrick
      Mary Larrick (Remer)
      Eliza Larrick (Beam)
      Catherine Larrick (Mcllwee)
      Margaret Larrick (Marker)
      Betsy Larrick (Rosenberger)
      Martha Larrick (Remer)
      Frederick Larrick, born about 1780, married Elizabeth Secrest December 18, 1 806 and moved to Timberridge. To this union was born the following eight children:
      Casper Larrick, born February 11, 1811, died December 24, 1893 at Mt. Zion, Ohio. Casper and his family are covered fully in the Spaid history of several years ago. He married Margaret Hellyer and could quote the Bible by the chapter.
      Robert Larrick, died April 9, 1890.
      Jacob Larrick, born April 1, 1820, died January 1, 1894.
      John Larrick, born November 4, 1816, died 1892.
      Henry, or Abe, Larrick was at Mt. Zion, Ohio and went on west
      Amy Larrick, died November 27, 1898.
      Becky Larrick, died November27, 1898.
      Betty Larrick.
The first Casper Larrick was in the Revolutionary Army from 1773 to 1776 and on September 25, 1960 the D.A.R. dedicated a memorial to Casper by placing a stone in Larrick row in Mt. Olive Cemetery. This is near Hayfield, Virginia. The inscription reads:
Casper Larrick
Born in France
Died Virginia, 1801
A Frontier Settler
Revolutionary War
Father of
Henry Larrick

Casper is believed buried back of his house where there are six or eight graves, only one of which has a stone marker, and that is for the Cody girl.

Ohio Chapter
      Jacob Larrick, born June 30, 1773 in Virginia, died 1843 at Mt. Zion, Ohio, was a son of the flist Casper Larrick and Elizabeth Sundown, an Indian lass believed to be of the Shawnees of Virginia. Jacob donated the land for the Mt. Zion Lutheran Church and adjoining cemetery. The homestead is still in the Larrick family and the patent is held by Paul Larrick of St. Louis, Missouri, although Paul does not own the farm. Jacob married Catherine Snapp, born August 17, 1781 in Virginia and died in Virginia sometime between 1813 and 1815. About 1816 in Virginia Jacob rnarried Catherine Spillman, born March 2, 1785, died May 29, 1865, at Mt. Zion, Ohio. To the first marriage four children were born in Virginia who were as follows:
      Elizabeth Ann Larrick, born September 27, 1805. She lived to be almost one hundred years old and is believed to have died in Ness County, Kansas. She married John Nicholson and I only have a partial list of her family. They moved to Paola, Kansas where the Nicholson farm, a few miles west of Paola, has been in the family name since 1859 and still is in the family. John died at Paola, Kansas in 1883 where he is buried.
            One son Jacob Nicholson moved to Carthage, Missouri in 1850. On account of the slave question he moved to Seneca, Kansas, passing through Johnson County in 1860, and later to Ness County, Kansas. Orie of Jacob's sons became Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Oklahoma and others went on to Portland, Oregon where Jacob and his wife are buried.

He returned to Ohio for a few years and canie to Johnson County, Kansas with his uncle and aunt, Joseph and Rebecca Larrick in 1860. In 1863 Isaiah sold out to Joseph and Rebecca and moved to near Paola where all trace of him has been lost. I have later found out through a grandson that Isaiah moved to Lawrence, Kansas to educate his children, one son and two daughters.
            One daughter still lives in Austin, Texas. Isaiah died in Kansas City, Mo. at avery old age..
            Another son of Elizabeth and John Nicholson remained at Paola, Kansas. Their only daughter married a Mr. Stout and the Stout family lives at Paola while Elizabeth, after John's death in'1883, took some of their children and moved to Ness County, Kansas.
