It's a good thing I was contacted by other descendants of August RICK. They had mentioned the name Ida RICK, which was unfamiliar to me. After reviewing the St. Joseph Catholic Church (Freeburg) records I discovered my error; Ida was indeed the ninth child of August and Magdalena (MÜLLER). I would guess that this may be the only record on which Ida's name appears, since vital records were not standard at the time and she died a few weeks after being born.
