I'm interested in your surname of Fick. To make a long story short, my ggfa, Augustus Fickweiler, came to America from Germany in 1861. After arrival he used the surname of Wiler. His daughter was said to be Swiss. When I found his ship record his name was Fickweiler. I'm wondering if the name Fick is actually a prefix name in Swiss and there was more to that name? The Fickweilers said that Augustus Fickweiler had brothers who migrated with him but not to America.
