history of Barbara Fritchman Thompson
As with any project of this magnitude one cannot do it alone. I want to
keep a running list of all those wonderful people out there who find my
web site and notify me of mistakes, changes, and additional
Three new generations back from Daniel's
line have been added. The new lines now go back to Hans
Adam, who we believe came to Pennsylvania from Holland. You will
also note the addition of the other spelling.
The information on the new generations has
been added using research done by Nicci Fritchman
who may be related to me through Daniel and Cathy Donchez whose
husband Brian is also a descendent of Daniel. We are all working very hard
to tie all these lines together. Also my cousin David Paup
has contributed to the information on the Fritchman family history.
Be sure to visit the photos page
to see some of the Fritchman ancestors.
My mother's maiden name is Callahan.
I have very little information on this line beyond Isaac. Mom came
from Bladen County, NC. Most of the records were lost when the courthouse
was burned during the Civil War. I believe our line originated from
Ireland with Isaac being the first generation to settle in the United

"The Nicholas Hess
Family 1741 - 1962. Published in 1962 by Alice Hess Schlegel of Bath, Pa.
Condensed and Compiled from the 1912 edition of Asher L. Hess of Philadelphia.
My Fritchman line goes through the Hess line twice. Beginning with Daniel (who married
a third generation Hess) our line of the Fritchman's up to the 1962 date are all in this
family genealogy with the exception of Lizzie. She is not listed as being the first wife
of Albert. Albert's second wife was a first generation Hess.
I welcome any information on the Fritchman family or suggestions for the family
pages. E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
