Hello again.Thank you for writing back.I hope you don't mind wading through all of this.I do have a few questions embedded here, so I hope you will answer them.I appreciate it.
You wrote on the Kunkle forum:
"…my Fiscus line migrated shortly after 1769 from Lancaster Co to Westmoreland Co on the Forbes Road."
That is a wonderful piece of information, actually.However Gerhardt and Frederich were related, Gerhardt went west (western Pennsylvania) and Frederich went south (North Carolina).It is practically impossible to verify Frederich's location because there are only snippets and inferences from 1) John Adam Fiscus's Revolutionary War pension application, 2) a Fiscus daughter’s Moravian death record that mentions moving “just this side of the Susquehanna River”, 3) a land record called “Cattail Marsh” for Frederick Fiscus in Maryland, 4) a Fiscus daughter’s statement in her Moravian death record that the Frederick Fiscus family lived first in Germantown after arriving in Philadelphia, and 5) the location of the two Hauser brothers who married Fiscus sisters when they lived near Frederick, Maryland.
The fact that other people named Fiscus were still in the Lancaster County, PA area in 1969 might be a clue for further research.Do you know where (more specifically) your Fiscus people lived in Lancaster County?John Adam Fiscus, son of Frederick Fiscus, said that he was born in Conestoga Township, Lancaster County, PA.
The second item of note that you wrote was:
