Information from Irving Deihl: Nicholas served in 6th Battalion of Berks Co Militia, which was mustered into active duty for Revolutionary War. Nicholas received a pension from 1837 to his death in 1841. When Nicholas returned from service, Henry was deed his land to Nicholas and his brother John. This is last knowledge we have of Henry. On return from service, Nicholas married Anna Maria Lambert. The first four children were born in Pa. Apparently the family moved to Queen Annes County in Maryland about 1790 where Nicholas worked as bricklayer on the new courthouse. John Henry was born in Maryland in 1791. In 1791 Nicholas & family returned to Berks County, sold their land to brother John and moved to what was then Cumberland (now Perry) County. There they reunited with Nicholas's in-laws and her sister's family, the Michael Loys. Some recports say the Barricks secured 100 acres in Tyrone Township, but according to Mildred Hurley, it was near Blain (Jackson Twp). The rest of his children were born at this location. In 1812 Nicholas lost land due to nonpayment of taxes. He then moved his family to the Cumberland County side of the North Blue Mountain Ridge. This apparently was near the community of Mt Hope in Mifflin Twp. Nicholas survived his wife by about 20 years, he was 82 or 83 when he died. Unsure of where they are buried.
