Frederick was born in 1736. He passed away in 1796.

Born in Weiler in Durlach (now Karlsruhe), Baden, Germany, Johann Friedrich Dague (Deg, Deeg) was the son of Andreas Deeg and Anna Maria Kudin. Weiler was in the Rhine River Valley near the French border. Friedrich came to America with his family in 1740, according to Filby's "Passenger and Immigration Lists*." He and his brother Andreas must have returned to Germany, then came back to America in 1753 on the ship "Eastern Branch."

He attended Trinity Lutheran Church while living in Lancaster, PA. After moving to Frederick County, MD, he and his family then moved further on to Washington County, PA. Friedrich purchased several tracts, including "Keyhole," "Tage's Grove," "High Germany," and "Brown (or Bushy) Flat."

He married Sophia Schmitt and Anna Maria Geysler. Children of Friederich and Sophia - Catherine Swinehart and Michael. Children of Friederich and Anna Maria - Mathias, Catherine, Christina Swickard, daughter Swinehart, Frederich, Mary Magdalena Swickard, John, Andrew, and Lucy.

Burial: [1] Bethlehem Lutheran Cemetery Glyde Washington County Pennsylvania, USA Grave site cemetery near scenery hill, Bethlehem Twp, Washington PA Note: Excellent Memorial images.

  • It is unlikely that Frederick and his brother Mathias arrived in 1740 and then returned unescorted to Germany as 4 and 6 year olds. The name translates to "Day" and is common. Mr. Walter Peterman researched this family in Germany when he was stationed there following WWII. Mr Peterman was a US Army Intelligence Officer and found their German records.
