Frick or Charles Rodenbeck (Rodenbeek)?

+1 vote
58 views
I asked my aunt about her parents and grandparents. I found census information on them saying her grandfather was Charles Rodenbeck (or Rodenbeek) from Sheridan Township, Logan, Ill,, and the other family info all checks out with what my aunt said, but she said she is positive her grandfather's name was Frick, and she said that definitely wasn't just a nickname. I'm wondering how this is possible when census records say Charles, and I can't find a Frick at all. Charles' family moved from Illinois and ended up in Ludell, Kan. His father in the census records is Henry Rodenbeck, who emigrated from Germany in the mid-1800s. I don't know any other relatives I can ask, my father is gone and had no other siblings. Thanks for any assistance!

There was at least one person with Frick as a middle name, but it was a female.

These are wonderful clues! Thanks so much, Frank! Maybe this will jog my aunt's memory.

I'm trying to find the place where I can officially thank you. When I find it I will.
