In Reply to: ZIKE, Jacob by Bob King of 285

Don't know if this is helpful or not, but wanted to let you know that the story my grandfather Bruce Zike always told me was that when Jacob Zike came over from Germany, his name was Zeuch (later changed to Zike) Jacobs, something to do with registering with last name first, first name last, and somehow got turned around, and that for THAT reason, ALL the Zikes are somehow related because there were no Zikes in America at that time! I always thought that was a neat piece of information.
