I am researching my Fricke family line. My G.Grandfather, was Adolphus William Fricke. Born in Germany 1827.He served in the Union Army and his brother Henry gave an affidavit for Adolf's pension. Henry lived on Nectarine St. They were both machinists.Adolf married Catherine Stephens,1853, in Elk County Pa. They had 4 sons,William, Henry 2/9/68,Frank, Edward. Also, 4 daughters, Matilda, Josephine,Julia and my grandmother, Rose. If any of this fits your Fricke family , I'd very much like to exchange information.
