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: email@example.com
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.
