Hi John;
I have found the records of the births of Adam Fick and Elisabetha Busch Children on a Civil Registry from Oppau. I could not find Adam himself as this registry goes from 1815 to 1850 and so he was probably born before 1815. I found my ggrandmother on this registry, she was Magdalena Massar born in 1828 to Leonhard Massar II and Barbara Fick. I have also found her brothers and sisters on this registry. I have ordered a book from Oppau which goes to 1813 to be able to find Barbara's parents in Oppau. So if you are related to Adam, somewhere we must be cousins. I have Barbara Fick, born in 1844, Elisabetha Fick, born in 1840, another Barbara Fick, born Oct. 13, 1839, Adam Fick, born August 27, 1838, Catharina Fick, born March 6, 1836, and Frederick Fick, born Nov. 28, 1834. The first Barbara might have died before the other one was born.
I have more information on Oppau but it is in German which I am now trying to translate.
It names the people who immigrated to the U.S.
My best to you;
Marbeth H. Knoff
