Fissel Family of Adams Co. PA

Surnames: Fissel, Hooven, Hammel, Mundorff
I would like information on Julie Ann (or Julian) Fissel. She was born in 1845 and died in 1921 in York Co. PA. Her parents were, as I was told, George and Barbara. The only George and Barbara who come close to fitting dates as being her parents are George Fissel and Barbara Hammel, whw were married in 1823 at First Trinity Reformed Church near Philadephia, PA . According to the church records, they were both 22 years old so they would have been born around 1801. Julie Ann Fissel married John Hooven (another surname have been stuck on for the past 6 years!). Julie Ann and John Hooven had a daughter, Ida "J." who married into the Mundorff line. If anyone else has information, please let me know and I will be glad to send you the info I have on the line. I have found a lot of Fishel/Fissel and tombstones are in German...very ornately decorated.

Surnames: Hooven, Fissel, Fishel, Fischel
The George and Barbara Hammel Fissel (Fishel) family resided in North Codorus Twp, York Co, PA near Lischey's Union Church. Both George and Barbara are buried in the cemetery at that church. They had the following children: Susanna (Mrs Simon F Gibbons), Mary (Mrs George Metzler), John, Jacob, Sarah, Henry, and twin daughters Magdalena (Mrs Alexander Hooven) and Juliana Barbara (Mrs John Hooven).

I am a descendant of Juliana Fissel Hooven's brother, Henry. Henry lived on his parent's farm in North Codorus after their death from a typhoid epidemic in the early 1870's. Henry and his wife Mary Ann Dahlhammer brought up a family of 13 on that farm: Jacob O, William H, Sarah A (Baublitz), John F, Charles, Samuel W, infant son, Emma J (Hoke), Alice B (Kaehler), Ida C (Runk), Mary E (Hamm) and Mellie R (Rudisill).

George and Barbara were married at the First Reformed Church in York, PA. The Hammel family is supposedly from Philadelphia, but I have never been able to locate any information on that aspect. George was the son of Johann Henry Fissel and Anna Barbara Fissel (two first cousins). They were descendants of the Killian Fissel (Fishel/Fischel) line that settled in York Co, PA from Essenheim, Hesse (now part of Germany).

Yes....please email me a copy of this photo to kperago@aessuccess.org. I would be interested in seeing it.

Suzanne - I am currently researching the Fischel, Fiscel, Fissel families of Adams County, PA. In searching the local newspapers, I have come up with the names of Alice Barbara Fissel & John S. Kaehler. I have Alice Barbara's parents as Henry Fissel and Mary Elizabeth Dolheimer who is the son of George Fissel & Barbara Hammel, but I haven't found the father of George Fissel. Do you have that information? Also, I would love to have a photo of John & Alice Barbara's family. I have some old pictures of the Fiscel family, but they are not labeled and I'm trying to find likenesses.

Donna,
My Fishell family came from Tyrone Township in Adams county as found in the 1800 census. They moved to Rochester NY area in 1812. Have you come across this Tyrone Township Fissel/Fishells? Jack

I am also trying to research the Fishel and Fissel family tree. I have a 6 generation chart. Starts with Frank Henry Fissel (Gettysburg,PA)my GrandFather who died May 2, 1990, then Samuel Willis Fissel who dies in 1961, then Henry Fishel who changed his name to Fissel. He dies in 1913 and was married to Mary Ann Dahlhammer. Next is George Fishel who died in 1879 who was married to Barbara Hamme. Last is Henry Fishel who dies about 1822 and was married to Barbera ??. Do you have info on where the Fishel family origionated from. I am under the understanding they came from Germany. I am related to the Fissel's in Gettysburg PA. Frank Fissel Jr, Steve Fissel, Bob Fissel (Now deseased). If you have any info, I would appreciate receiving it.

The Fissel family you are referencing were Hessians and arrived in this country 3 September 1742 aboard the ship Loyal Judith. They came from the Duchy of Rhein-Hesse, which eventually became part of the country we know as Germany today. Some of the first Fissels to arrive were Killian Fischel, his wife Christina, and their 11 children. Among the 11 children were two sons, Johannes (Hans) Wendall Fischel and Johannes (Hans) Michael Fischel. These two brothers married respectively a Susanna Margaretta ? and a Anna Margaretta ? (surnames unknown). Wendall and Susanna had a son Johann Henry Fishel and Michael and Anna Fishel had a daughter Anna Barbara Fishel. These two first cousins married and they are the Henry and Barbara Fishel you referenced.

I do not have this family history on my computer yet, but would be more than happy to exchange and share information with you. I may have to sort thru several paper files I've collected over the years but would be happy to do so.

Please contact me at: kperago@comcast.net and we can discuss further.

My grandmother,Annie J Hoke Livingston, was a 1st cousin to your grandfather, Frank H Fissel Sr. My great grandmother, Emma J Fissel Hoke was Samuel Willis Fissel's sister.

I have old photos of Frank H Fissel and wife Annie, Samuel W Fissel, Henry and Mary Dahlhammer Fissel and even Mary Dahlhammer Fissel's parents, William and Sarah Sowers Dahlhammer. I would be more than happy to share copies with you if you would like.

My grandmother has shared a lot of the Fissel family history with me as I was growing up. And we often visited the cemeteries where Henry/Mary Fissel and George/Barbara Fishel are buried.

Looking forward to hearing from you in the near future.
