I found Elsie and Friedrich (Fritz) on the Hicks Family Ancestry tree at Ancestry. I asked the owner to contact you but you can view the tree at Ancestry if you sign up for a 14-day free trial. Just be sure to cancel on day 13.
Also I found on an old tree that Elsie's father's name was Verrier and her mother's name was Barbour. I searched under both names and didn't find anything about Elsie.

The Russ/German indicates that they were Germans living in Russia. Catherine The Great realized that her Russian people were not farming the land as well as Germans farmed their land in Germany. She encouraged Germans to move to Russia and farm and basically show the Russian people that farming can be productive. The Germans were harrassed by the local Russians and MANY moved to the USA. They're called Germans From Russia and many of their genealogy societies are spread across the USA.
