I believe Richard Fryer (husband of Ann Dameron) was the brother of Ann Fryer who married James Waughop in Portsmouth Va. Sep 3 1795This marriage bond was surety by Richard Fryer and it mentions Ann's mother who was now remarried as Mrs. Mary Joines. Which establishes the Richard was a brother not a father.
Rumor has it Richard and Ann's father was a Col. in the British service and one account said his name was also Richard and another stated James Fryer.
My quest is for the parents of Ann and Richard Fryer and I decend from Ann Fryer and James Waughop.
I thought this info would be of interest and any help in my quest is appreciated. RM
