In the chart below, the two Fricke sisters were actually half-sisters, having the same father [Johann Heinrich Tiede Fricke] like the Mente children did, but also like the Mente children, their mothers were half-sisters. Dorothea Fricke's mother was Dorothee Auguste Habichhorst, and Henrietta Fricke's mother was Marie Charlotte Habichhorst. Johann Tiede Fricke was a forester in Harpstedt (Eugene Mente said he was a forester for the King of Hannover), his bride was Catherine Marie Charlotte Habichhorst.
Note: Friedel is a nickname for Friedrich

Emile Thüme and her husband Friedel


Friedel Thüme 1928


At the end of WWII, out of concern for the well-being of his grandmother's sister, Charles H. Foertmeyer MD (2) requested the Red Cross to try to locate Emilie in war-torn Germany. His request was made in August of 1945 and the requested information was returned in September of 1946. Note in the letter above the address at which Emilie lived in Lüneburg; 5, Münze. Today the name of the street is An der Münze, which means "At the Coin". Why? Well, for many years on this street there has stood a colorfully decorated house that has long been referred to as the "städtische Münze" or "urban coin". In the 16th century it was the residence of the mint master (Münzmeister).
