Schleich family tree-Bavaria

Hi Ralf,

I am a Schleich descendant. I only have from family word or mouth that my Schleich line came from Bavaria Germany. I don't have a clue where in Bavaria they came from. I am still trying to figure that out. I've traced my line to Jacob Schleich born in Frederick, Maryland, USA in 1767. I am trying to found out who his parents were and whether they emigrated to the US from Germany or whether his grandparents did.

Thank you for the family tree information.

As I look your list over, I am wondering if any of your Schleich's are relatives of my ggggrandfather Jacob Schleich. Like I noted above I haven't been able to find out who Jacob's parents were. Since Jacob was born in Frederick Maryland, I can only assume the following:

That his parents were also born in Frederick, Maryland OR they emigrated to the US before he was born.

Anyway, thank you so very much for answering.

My John/Jacob Schleigh lived Baltimore,MD
d)1802 leaving a will naming daughters, Mary Sophia and wife, Catherine. My descendant was Catherine Schleich who married Solomon Allen. There was also a daughter who married George Franciscus of Baltimore City, MD. John Schleich live on Gay Street 1798-1803 according to tax records.

Hi Donna,
I'm wondering if the Jacob Schleigh you mention later came to Ohio.If so there is a possibility he changed his name to Sly.He had a son Jacob who married Sarah Prickett. Have you heard of these Slys? Markie

Hi Markie,

I don't think my Jacob Schleich changed his name after he came to Ohio. Everything I have found on him shows his name spelled as Schleich, Schleigh or Sleigh. His last will and testament also shows his name spelled Schleich. He had a son named Jacob Schleich Jr. (born early 1800's - I don't have an exact birth date for him yet). Jacob is buried in the Amanda Township Cemetery, Amanda, Fairfield Co., Ohio - his wife Hannah is buried beside him. There are other Schleich's buried there also, please note that I couldn't find another Jacob buried there.

I might add that other Schleich's within my line spelled their name as Schley at some point and then changed it back to Schleich. I haven't figured out why yet.

Hi Donna,
Thank you so much for your reply.Some information I have seems to think the reason they may have changed the name was they didn't want to be known as Germans.My maiden name was Slye but the information I had was they changed the name over an arguement about slavery.Who knows which is right? Markie

Hi Markie,
Nice to hear from you. Very interesting information about the name change possibilities. I had not clue before, you've opened up a whole new avenue to pursue.

Both ideas (not wanting to be know as Germans and dispute over slavery) could be the answer. Especially Jacob Schleich owned a couple of slaves according to an early Maryland census (I think it was the 1800 one - not sure, I don't have my records with me).

I'll keep those ideas in my mind. Curiously, I am at a dead still on my Schleich research, at least as far as Jacob Schleich is concerned - I haven't been able to find out who his parents were.

Happy hunting and thanks again for your response. :-) Donna

8 Feb. Sacramento. I've been researching the Schleich family for some time. My gr-gr-gr-g'ma was Caroline Eliz. Schleich from Pickaway and FF Cos., Ohio. We've had trouble tracing her, but I've got most of the Schleich family done back thru Jacob, among others. If you can send me an address to my Hotmail address, then I can send you copies of all I have, which is considerable, as it's been collected over the last 20 years and runs to at least 20-30 pages of family group records, and the like. If you could give me some idea about when your Schleich ancestor was born, then it's possible I could find him on the records I have, and will be sending you. Don't have any of this one computer, as the systems I use are so often not compatible with all programs. & my typing is slow and poor.

Regarding the Schleich family name, is was originally as spelled. howevr, speeling of last names wan't starndardized in most cases until after 1900, so we have seen Schleich spelled variously as Schley, Schleigh, Sleigh, Slick, and a few other ways I can't even remember. So when you see a name in FF or Pickaway Co. which looks vaguely like Schleich or Slick, it's probably a relative.
