Wice vs Wise

Posted: 1302156650000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Wice
I notice that my last name goes between Wice and Wise… believe they are connected to the Wice. After looking at draft papers and census reports where their name is written as Wice then corrected to be Wise, or they use Wise.

They are from Tennessee

However I believe they came from Canada, and they are German. Grandfather always said they were Pennsylvania Dutch which is German Heritage. Everything is leading me to Canada or Nova Scotia.

No one seems to get past Benjamin, as they are focused on Wise, whereas it’s really Wice.
