I have several references to Westrick in my files - would be interested in knowing where/when/what info you have on this name:

Frances Jungblut, b. Chicago, @ 1861, daughter of Mathias Jungblut and Frances Butzen - married Matt Westrick - no other info known.

Matthias and Frances Westrick were godparents of Maria Francisca Lichtenstein, b. 20 Aug 1896, Chicago, baptized 23 Aug 1896, daughter of Mary Ann Jungblut and Louis Lichtenstein.

I found the Westrick connection while researching the Lichtenstein/Butzen lines which I am a descendant of. The only other mention of Westrick is that one (perhaps Matt?) was called "Shorty"...nothing else on that lead. My Lichtenstein and Butzen families are from the Reil Germany and Pottstown Pa - moving on to Chicago.

Let me know if you think there may be a connection.

Regards, Maureen Murray Webb
