I suspect those are phonetic spellings. "D" in German is pronounced as "T". Mann in German is exactlly that - man, so dropping the extra "n" comes very naturally. With the double t and the double n it is more than probable your folks are of German/Prussian extraction. Do you have any other information on them? I have found evidence that leads me to believe Friedricke had a sibling(s) or other kin that immigrated to the same area. Thanks. Suasn.
