are you looking at the right place?

there is a Friedrichsdorf in Hesse-Homburg and
there is a Friedrichsdorf in Hesse-Kassel - nearer to Eschwege,
both had been founded for hugenotts by two different counts Friedrich II.

You have to ask at the town archives of Hofgeismar!

They had at least two different french-reformed churches, and some more church buildings in the villages - very nice buildings:

Best wishes

Good Morning

I have a tree prepared by a Herald of Arms in England, with Hesse - Homburg on one of the lines.

George HOOD of Selby was refused Membership of the Quakers in 1836.

Had both known (Selby) and unknown (some not stated 1846) property interests.

Possible (but unknown) links to COOK and/or PEARSON names.
