Surnames: KIRCHER FIX HIX FRY
Submitter: Tommy Kircher ([email protected])
Date: 07 Jun 2002

Hello, My great great grandfather, Frederick KIRCHER, according to some in the family, came from Wuerttemberg Germany around 1845. A few years later he apparently was in Illinois (some feel this may havebeen in Whiteside County.) I did find some data there on a Frederick KIRCHER, but that Frederick married a Louisa FRY. At some point he married a Louisa FIX or HIX. Some say that Louisa too came from Wuremtmberg. Unfortunately both Frederick AND Louisa have been a brick wall. This has been complicated by the fact that I've data on at least four Frederick KIRCHER's from Illinois to Kansas to Mississippi to Pennsylvania. Any help you might provide on the FIX surname would certainly be appreciated. Cordially, Tommy Kircher Fort Worth, Texas

Surnames: BURCH ARDEN BIRCH MITCHELL
Submitter: Arthur J. Burch ([email protected])
Date: 05 Mar 2002

Desperately seeking information about our grandfather, Enoch Arden BURCH. According to his Death Certificate, Enoch was born in Carlyle, Clinton Co., IL, on March 11, 1867. Despite several years of intensive research, we've been unable to determine who his parents were. The only sibling we've found is William Allen BURCH, born in Trenton, Clinton Co., IL, on October 4, 1859. I suspect that Enoch's middle name of ARDEN could be a clue, possibly the name of a relative ... does anyone know of a BURCH/ARDEN connection? Other Clinton Co. entries show a Charles M. BURCH, who enlisted into the Civil War in June 1864; also a C. BURCH is buried in the New Baden Cemetery. I wonder if both these entries are the same man? Also wonder if Charles may be related to "my" BURCH ancestors. The 1850 Federal Census for District 18, Clinton Co., IL has a Richard BIRCH, age 38, enumerated. His wife, Sarah, age 33, and son, George, age 2, are included. This BIRCH family is shown to be residing with the family of M.P. MITCHELL, wife Lovinia, and daughters Susanna and Barbara. Does anyone recognize this BIRCH family, or know whether there's any connection to "my" BURCH ancestors? Any information, or clues, greatly appreciated. Arthur J. BURCH
