Hello fellow Fricke researchers... My 2nd great grandmother was Wilhelmina Dorothea Fricke b. in Hanover, Germany in 1825. She married Wilhelm Heinrich Mente of Schnega. They had 4 children, Louis, Bette, Marie, and Adolph. Louis and Marie (my ancestor) came to America but Bette and Adolph had some sort of mental disability and remained in Germany. When Wilhelmina died, Wilhelm married her sister, Marie Sophia Wilhelmine Henriette Fricke and had 9 more children:
Emil, William, Alvin, Eugene, Bodo Karl, Elise Bertha "Otillie", Karl, Richard and Emilie Sophie. Several came to America...Eugene, Emil, William for sure. The only thing I know about the Fricke sisters' parents is that their father was a forester for the King of Hanover. Does this family sound familiar to anyone? Sure could use some help with them.
