My great great great grandfather was Francis Marion Frederick Sr. He is who Fredericksburg was named after when it became a town. I am looking for some information on my family history any websites or anything would help greatly and be very appreciated. thanks in advance for any help regarding this matter. I would just like to help my grandmother to remember things to talk to me about.

My grandfather was named Francis Marion Frederick from Washington, IN.(Born: 1888) Is this who you are referring to? I was always told Fredericksburg IN was named after one of our ancestors, but when I look up the history of Fredericksburg, IN it does not indicate that. We used to have family reunions in Palmyra, IN which is just down the road from Fredericksburg, so the story seemed to make sense.

Fredericksburg, Indiana was named for Frederick Royse Frontier Ranger from Pa. He had been stationed at a Ranger camp on Blue River south of where Fredericksburg now stands. He later settled in this area. The Old town of Bridge Port was located at the forks of the Blue River and was moved and renamed. You can find a marker in his name located at Horners Chapel Church. My family settled this area at the same time{Lofton} mothers side around 1800.
