It was great to hear from you so quickly! You and Murray are distant cousins, going back to your common grandfather, Frederick Fick. Thank you for the information you shared about Peter Fick's arrival in the U.S. with his father, John Peter, in 1748. Have you read The Long Point Settlers by R. Robert Mutrie? He is an authority on Norfolk County genealogy and has done extensive research. (His information can be found on http://www.nornet.on.ca)He states that Peter Fick came from Russia. (Not Prussia) "Joined the British Army and came to America with them during the Seven Years War. He settled in N.Y. and married his wife Sarah. During the American Revolution, Peter served in the Loyalist forces and then went to New Brunswick. After an interim period back in N.Y., they settled in Walsingham Township about 1813." I'm wondering if Prussia was at that time under the control of Russia. Do you know where he came from in Prussia? Do you have any further information about his father John Peter? Another helpful website that I have found with Fick genealogy is http://the-burgers.rootsweb.com/ Thanks again, Gussie Fick
