I've just been going over the new master surname list to see if there were any variant spellings of my maiden name: FISCUS. I have seen FICKAS written in a place where I expected to see FISCUS, so I wondered if there could be a connection.FISCUS is a Latin word for the personal treasury of the Caesar of Rome. My immigrant ancestor, Frederick FISCUS, came from an area of Germany near Frankfurt in 1743. The FISCUS group either went from PA>MD>NC>IN>IO, or from PA>western PA>OH/WV>?(not my line). If you see any possible connections between FICKAS and FISCUS, please contact me. Thank you.
