Another post in the year-long challenge, #52Ancestors by genealogist Amy Johnson Crow. I am way behind, but every post is another post! Today I am sharing the limited information I have about my 3rd great-grandmother on my mother's paternal line: Theresa FRICKER.
Born or baptised apparently 1 May 1760, in Reading, Pennsylvania, of unknown parents, Theresa left almost no records, as did many women of the times. The FRICKER family would have been Roman Catholic, as shown when she married into the KUHN family in 1775, in the Goshenhoppen, Berks, PA chapel. Non-Catholics would have been noted as such in the records. Note that her first name is sometimes spelled as Farasy, Farrasy, Farracy, Tarasey, Tarasy.
My first note of Theresa FRICKER was seeing her marriage registration, a typed published transcription of Goshenhoppen marriages: p.107
Much of the details have come from the Goshenhoppen registers [transcribed/typed], the KUHN obelisk in the Conewago Basilica cemetery, and elderly relatives' records. [photo by permission]
