FAKE Mon Sep 22 16:52:09 1997
Peter Fake b. April 19, 1800 d. December 6, 1876, Birthplace unknown but probably Schoharie, NY Died in Clinton, NY. Married Nov. 24, 1825 to Margaret (Maggie) Prentice b. 1807 8 children, 3 sons, 5 daughters. Looking for birthplace and parent information. There are ~1800 Schoharie residents by the name of Feck whoappear in later census as Fake, among them Nicholas Fake mentioned in the will of Peter Vroman (under the Fake spelling). I suspect that they are descendants of the Feeck family of Schoharie Palatines, but have no proof.

FICKEISEN Thu Mar 20 08:23:27 1997
Looking for confirmation of the Abraham Fickeisen and Margaret Mueller Fickeisen (possibly Fickerson) came to New York about 1845. Had daughters Catherine, 1850, Margaret, 1851, Caroline, 1853, Adam, 1855. Eve was born in Wheeling in 1857, so the window for New York is 1843-1857. We think they were in New York City, Albany and Syracuse. We have already confirmed this family in the 1860-1880 Censuses. Thanks, Jim Andris, great great grandson

FICKEISENTue, 11 Mar 1997 09:06:37 -0600 (CST)
We are fairly sure that Abraham Fickeisen and new bride Margaret Meuller Fickeisen came to Albany some time soon after they arrived in New York City on or around July 4, 1843. Family legend has it that a farmer offered them work and a place to stay at Albany. Their first child, Adam, may have been born there early in the next year. In one to several years, they moved on to Syracuse, New York, and finally ended, by way of Wheeling, WV, near Marietta Ohio, in Washington County, where they set up a homestead and raised 12 children. I would like to know more about this family's activites in Albany.
