    • Quote from Quaker Sketches by Dr. Don Yoder

      THOMAS WICKERSHAM
      "The following is the testamony of the monthly meeting of Newark in
      Pennsylvania concerning him -
      Thomas Wickersham came from Bolney in the County of Sussex in Old England in
      the year 1700 Having a Certificate from Horsham monthly meeting in said
      County recommending him as an honest man and in unity with faithful friends,
      he was an early settler in Marlborough in Chester County, and a member of
      Newark monthly meeting & Kennett particular meeting the remainder of his
      life--His care in attending meetings for worship & discipline was remarkable
      & is worthy of immitation. He was chosen Elder for Kennett meeting in 1714,
      in which station he continued 'till about the year 1718 when he appeared in
      the ministry which was mostly some seasonal exhortations to faithfulness and
      was generally well received by friends being in the simplicity of truth, his
      conversation agreeing therewith, he retained his integrity to the truth
      'till the last, and died in a good old age at his own house in the 4th mo:
      1730, and was buried in Kennett burying ground. A minister about 12 years."
