Some History from Gary Lycan

The Lycan family originally came to the USA from Sweden/Denmark
about 1654 to New Sweden which is now Philadelphia. From there
they gradually moved to Virginia, North Carolina then Kentucky by
1800. By that time they adopted the spelling of the name Lycan.
Other branches used the spelling Lykin, Likin, Liken etc. By 1830 they
moved to Paris, Illinois. My great grandfather and 2 brothers moved to
Wisconsin by 1840. The brother of my grandfather had a son, James
Brigham Lycan, the subject of the picture. James Brigham was born in
Wisconsin in 1835 and served in the civil war for the Union. He moved
to Weld Co. Colorado and lived there till he died in 1902.My
grandfather moved from Wisconsin to Minnesota then in 1910 to
Canada to homestead. James Brigham Lycan would have been his
cousin.
