THE American progenitors of Henry Clay Frick were JOHANN NICHOLAS FRICK and MARTIN OVERHOLT who followed William Penn from the continent of Europe in search of religious freedom and personal opportunity. Frick came from Switzerland and Overholt from the Palatinate on the Rhine. Both sailed from Rotterdam and landed in Philadelphia but they were only nominally contemporaneous. Martin arrived about 1731 and died in 1744. Johann came in 1767 and lived till 1786. Henry Clay was of the fourth gener ation succeeding his two great-great-grandfathers. The Swiss family Frick, of Celtic-Burgundian origin, is very old; that is to say, it sprang into prominence and gave name to a village in the Sisseln-Thal nearly four hundred years before Columbus discovered America and it holds authenticated records of unbroken lineage from 1113 to the present day. Among the adventurous members of the family who immigrated to America 9 following Conrad who led the van in 1731, was JOHANN NICHOLAS, who proceeded forth with to Getmantown, the rallying point of colonists from Switzerland and the Palatinate, where he found descend Frick the Man ants of Conrad, and of nine others of the name who had arrived between the years 1732. and 175 5 . The pioneering spirit naturally dominated newcomers from the old world bent upon acquisition of fertile lands in fresh territory and the trend necessarily was to the West. Already John, the eldest son of Conrad, had pushed on as far as the Susquehanna valley and established a prolific branch of the family in Lancaster. Others were gazing longingly toward the Alleghenies and avid for information concerning the vast country beyond when the patriots of Philadelphia and all the country round were thrilled by the sound of the big bell proclaiming the Declaration of Independence.
