Summary of Frisingers

This is a brief summary of The genealogy from William Frisinger back to Ludwig(Also spelled Ludwick) Frederick Freysinger, my forbearer that immigrated to this country arriving October 16, 1754 in Philadelphia Pennsylvania aboard the ship Peggy. The clan spread to Virginia and Ohio. I am from the Ohio branch. I do not know where he came from but speculation is Germany or Austria. Switzerland is a distant possibility. There is a town in Germany called Freising and many Frisingers believe he came from there. A good link for free translation is: http://world.altavista.com/

A TOTALLY unsubstantiated source says he was born around 1744 Munich, Germany.  An equally unreliable source gives 1740 in Germany. Other sources but his berth place in Freising.

I am William Nathan Frisinger born Ann Arbor Michigan Feb. 11, 1941, Son of Max Robison (probably originally spelled Robinson Frisinger(originally spelled Frysinger)born January 2, 1913, Rockford Ohio and Elizabeth Simpson Collins, Max is the son of Rolla Nathan Frisinger (originally spelled Frysinger), born in Rockford, Mercer county, Ohio on February 19th 1890.

Rolla is the son of George Washington Freysinger of Rockford Ohio, George was the son of Nathan Frisinger also of Rockford. Nathan was the son of William Freysinger who moved with his fatherless family from Rockingham County Virginia to Ohio. William was the son of Peter Freysinger who was a veteran of the war of 1812. Peter was the son of Ludwig who landed in Philadelphia on October 16, 1754 having come across on the ship Peggy.

The captions list spelled it Ludwick Freysinger, the oath of allegiance spelled it Ludwig Friderich Freysinger, the oath of adjuration spelled it Ludwig Fridrich Freysinger. Spellings very. My Father had a different spelling on his birth certificate. Some typical spellings are Frisinger, Frysinger, Freysinger, and Freisinger. All should be considered interchangeable from a genealogy standpoint.

Ludwig is 7 generations back from me.  There is one more adult generation after me. If each generation averaged 2.2 males, then there should be 2.2 to the 8th power with the last name descended from Ludwig.  2.28 = 548 adult men with the last name of one of the variations of Frisinger descended from Ludwig.
