I am also one of many to have vague family folklore that the original family name was von Fritsch. Folklore is that the "von" was dropped because it was seen as pretentious and not Americanized. Also everyone seems to have enought trouble pronouncing or spelling the name Fritsch (too many consenants, not enough vowels).
My grandfather Edward Charles Fritsch, Sr. was originally from the Cincinnati area. I can probably get more details from my father (Edward C., Jr.) re grandfathers parents, siblings, etc., but do not have them at hand. Edward C. Fritsch, Sr. was married to Elizbeth I. Fernandez from Arkansas and they settled in Havertown, PA. Both are deceased. I would be interested in receiving a file with either the von Fritsch or Fritsch family crest if you have it. Or any info within your reach on my grandfather's line. Regards, JL Fritsch
