In Reply to: William Fanger of Mo. by S. Marsh of 23

Found this site and was looking at some of my family names. My Mom's maiden name is Fanger. You are the only Fanger in the entire list.
What I heard is that the last name Fanger is probably a misspelling of the German name Sanger. I think the S in german looked and or sounded like our F. Have you ever been told this? It makes me wonder in terms of doing geniology if really I would have to trace back to Sanger.
