I have found at least 2 dozen spellings for the Fishell family i.e. Fischel, Fischl, Fuessel, Fizel, Faessell, Feezell, Fausel, Fussell, Ficcil, Phissel, etc.
Our ancestor Philip Martin Fissel arrived 27 October 1738 from Germany on the Ship St. Andrew.He married Susannah Schaunot or Shaum (one listing gives Susannah Limbach?). I am unsure whether Philip came from the German state of Baden Wuerttemberg or Westfalen.
Looking for ancestors & descendants of Philip Martin Fissel.
My Mother is Thelma Verleen Fishell Guthrie daughter of Norman Michael & Nina May Finnell Fishell, son of Jacob Lewis & Sarah Caroline Fortwangler Fishell, son of Michael & Jane Kunkle Fishell, son of Jacob & Catherine Ann ?
