von Fritsch means "of Frederick William of Prussia"

My Godfather told me before the die that my Great Grandfather Ferdinand von Fritsch born in Alsace had three brothers Karl von Fritsch how was a scientist, Werner von Fritsch the Baron, August von Fritsch how had some relation to the Grand Duchess of Luxingbourg, and his father my Great Great Grandfather Louis von Fritsch was the Major of some place in German now France. This sound to me like some B.S. but I don't know. My Grandmother Mary Louisa Fritsch had left me a Iron Cross when she died. It is pretty fancy. It looks like something you would see on the crown. I do know Ferdinand had a relative name Lambert von Fritsch. Lambert, Ferdinand and their familys all immigrated to the United States. Well, if anyone out there has heard of any of this people let me know.

Kindest Regards,
Eric William Price
