Re: Herig-Germany to Michigan

In Reply to: Herig-Germany to Michigan by Kelley Arasim of 10

I seemed to have found a couple of missing links. Seems the family line can't keep their stories straight, but I am finding some differences.

As previously posted (days ago), the error is that the name didn't change to HERRICK until maybe 1826 (that's a bit earlier than I'd been told).

I seem to have found that when John L. came here from Germany...he switched his name from (perhaps) Johannes Ludwig Herig/ John L. Herrick. He and his wife and family are listed in the 1880 census with the current spellings of both their names...and their children.
John L. Herrick b:12/24/1833
Caroline Eisenach Herrick b: ~1835
Louis Herrick b: 1857 (which is 6/7/1857 by family notes)
Edward Herrick b: ~1859
William Herrick b: ~ 1869
Henry Herrick b: ~ 1872
Frank Herrick b: ~ 1876

I put two and two together with Caroline being his wife...and scrolling the census to see that her two brothers lived just doors away with their families.

NOW, if anyone can help me with any of these "kids" and their families I'd appreciate it.

OH, the census is from Michigan and that's where all but John was born.
