My last name is Fiock, and I'm trying to trace my Fiock ancestors.
My grandfather is Frank F. Fiock, Sr. I grew up thinking his father was Francis, but research suggests he was Frank N. Fiock. I think my grandmother said sometimes they called my grandpa "Frank Jr" although in my time, he was "Frank Sr", my dad is "Jr" and my brother is "III". His father was Frederick Fiock, who was married to Isabella Schmarde. Their male children were John, Frank, and Harry. I found their marriage certificate which listed them as Frederick Fisck and Isabella Chamard. I found what I believe is Frederick's death certificate (Fred Fiocke), which listed his parents as unknown. I think he was born in PA and then went down to New Orleans, and then up to St. Louis, where we've been ever since, although the details vary a bit from source to source.
Anything ring a bell to anyone? Any advice as to how to go back further than Frederick? I know the spelling of Fiock changes and varies, but I'm just not having any luck.
