Surnames: SPEICH,McGARRIGLE,WICK,FISHCER,ESCH,STOCKER,STURM Updated April 8, 2006
About Our Family Research
I have been researching my ancestry for ten years. SPEICH from Switzerland has been the most fruitful and goes back to 1500. McGARRIGLE has been challenging but originated in RATHFRILAND, Northern Ireland (County Down). WICK has been very challenging, originating in present Germany (Prussia). FISCHER, even more challenging but also Prussian. ESCH, through other's research, originated in Northern Germany going back to 1500. STOCKER, also Swiss and STURM originated in Wuertenberg, Germany. All surnamed immigrants came to MILWAUKEE, WI or thereabouts.
Any and all information on these surnames will be much appreciated.
