I have file on Wm K. Fishback and his descendants whom I got copies from Walter Fishback of Florida. He does not have the names of Willaim's parents, but I told him that I suspect that William's mother was a Kemper. Bec back in old time, mother sometimes used her maiden name for son or daugther as first, or middle name.

I have notes that Elizabeth Fishback, b. Feburary 13, 1723, d. Feb. 21, 1768, married John Peter Kemper. Their only son was John Peter Kemper, Jr. Their great grandson, Gen. James L. Kemper, was Governor of Virginia (1874-78) and general in the Confederate army in the Battle of Gettysburg.

Elizabeth Fishback was daughter of John Fishback (original immigrant) and Agnes Haeger. (John's father was Johannes Fischbach in Truppbach, Germany.)

You had written to me and told me you had an article or something from the paper regarding my family history. You were wanting to get it to my grandfather Walter Fishback. Would you still like to send this?

Thank you,

Thank you very much for your help. I believe we already have that information. I will pass it on to my grandfather. He is the one who began the search for the parents of William Kemper Fishback.

Any info that you might need I may be able to help let me know.

Hi Doug,
Could you give me any dates you have on Elizabeth's father John. I have so many John and Johannes in my tree I want to make sure I have the correct one to add this information. I am a descendant of Philip Fischbach's daughter Marie Elizabeth.

Hi, Shirley. Your question sent me back to my notes, where I realized my earlier posting contained an error. More about that in a minute.

First, to answer your question: John Fishback (1691-1734) was father to Elizabeth Fishback (1723-1768), who married John Peter Kemper.

In my earlier posting, I said John (1691-1734) Fishback's father was Johannes Fischbach in Truppbach, Germany. I was wrong. John's father was Philip Fischbach (1661), and Philip's father was Johannes Fischbach (1631). This makes the John Fishback of whom you asked (that is, Elizabeth's father), the brother of Marie Elizabeth, to whom you trace ancestry.

Hi, I am a 6th Ggrandchild of John Fischbach,via his daughter Maria Elizabeth Fischbach, who married Melchior Brumbach. The Fishbach family and Melchior Brumbach were settlers in the 1714 Germanna Colony in Va. They came from the area of Nassau-Seigen Germany .Maria Elizabeth Fischbach and Melchior were most likely married after their arrival in VA. as Melchior is listed as a bachelor on arrival. Harmon Fischbach was also among the settlers. You will find a lot of info on the Germanna site, both genealogical and historical. There is also a mailing list.
