|I and several cousins are researching and collecting data on the Norick/Noricks/Norrick/Norrix family, which has been researched as far back as to the mid to late 1700's to Salt Lick Township, Fayette County, Pennsylvania. From information already collected, it is believed the family originated from Germany or Austria, and from a copy of a letter from a very distant cousin, the family migrated to the U.S. around 1700 from Germany or Switzerland. There is also a possibility that the family may have migrated from the Noric Alps (Norische Alpens) in Austria, near the Germany border.
In the late 1700's, the family lived in Bullskin and Salt Lick Townships, Fayette County, Pennsylvania, then in the early 1800's the family traveled to Carroll County, Ohio, and about the late 1820's some of the family then traveled to Dearborn County, Indiana, then to Pike County, Indiana. From Indiana, the descendants of Peter Norrick scattered to Oklahoma, Arkansas and Illinois, but most of the family stayed in southern Indiana area.
Through research, it is also believed that the original last name was Nargang or Nergan. That we currently know of, Norick, Noricks, Norrick and Norrix are the only family surnames currently used today. Other confirmed spellings for the family that have been used in the past are as follows: Noric, Narks, Narrich, Narrick, Norricks. All of these different spellings have been confirmed as being of the same family.
My lineage in the family is as follows: Patti>Kenneth>Claude>Lawson>Jacob>Peter>Daniel>Jacob Norrick
Due to upgrades with Family Tree Maker and Genealogy.com, it is now necessary to do all researching through Ancestry.com, which all living persons will be listed as 'living'. However, please feel free to contact me with regard to any branches, living or deceased, and I will assist and/or supply you with a copy of my current listing of all persons. Any additional information is always greatly appreciated. I am always willing to share the information that I have.
Thank you and God bless!
