I don't know if my ancestors came from north or south Germany.
herman C. F. Fick born Aug 27, 1859 in Monterov, Germany.
He came to America in about 1879-1885. He married in 1891 to Augusta Huebner. they were my Grandparents.
Herman was to have came here with a brother who became ill and had to return to Germany.
A relative of mine has an old postcard with a photo of some people in from of a bakery in Germany. We think it may be relatives. And that they run the bakery. Herman was a farmer and stone mason. He made what they called the "Wisconsin" basements. He used very large field stone some much larger than a soccer or basket ball.
He did have a relative or friend that lived near the Chicago area. Herman was god Father to a child born in Chicago in the late 1890's.
His father was Johann Fick and his mother was Louisa Weckert. Herman changed his name to Vick when he filed for citizenship.
Thank you for any information. Betty R
