How nice it is to hear from someone also searching for information on the Fick line. Supposedly, Carl was born in Hamberg, Germany about 1839, however he had brothers who came with him to US and then moved on out of the state of Michigan, not sure where. I'm sure there is a connection somewhere. Carl's wife was Louise Allerholz, also born in Germany, at least that's what we are told. Carl and Louise had several children, one whose name was Bertha, but I don't think she ever had any children. Bertha married twice, her first husband's last name was Harris and then married a Howard Crane. Bertha was born and died in Michigan. If I receive any information whatsoever that may benefit either of us, I'll certainly e-mail you. Thanx. Sandy
