Barbara - Thanks, Some of the information I have is from the Census reports
& that is how I estimated their birth years,
I had searched the LDS records before, but I had not stumbled across the
one for Heinrich Fricke - They are the same, at least their data
matches what I have. They have a few more birth dates, but they were also
missing two of the children. So the little bits add up.
Unfortunately they did not list a source for the information, which would
be nice. I would like to know where the name of Sophie appeared
with the maiden name & look at it myself. Someone had to run across it
somewhere & had gotten those dates too. Just a big puzzle.
Your search is not easy! There are two pages in LDS searches that
be your family. One lists Heinrich Fricke as born 16 Jan 1815 and died 5
Sep 1884. His wife is listed as Sophie Fchiere(??), born in Germany16
1821 and death 27 June 1885. Children listed as Henry( born 1849 in
Hannover) Godfrey, Lena, Christina, Peter, Louis and Mary born in La
The other page is the 1880 census where Henry Frickey and Sophie
in Bennigton, Marshall, IL Some children are listed although some could
have moved out of the house by 1880. Godfee, Petor, Luis and Mary.
Do you think both would be that family?
That Fchiere name is quite strange and is probably someone's mistaken
read on some record. Have you checked any church records in Illinois for
births where the mother's maiden name may be listed? Since it is
an unusual name, if the correct spelling were known, you may find her
somewhere more easily than the Fricke name.
