My name is Kim Fred, I am a direct descendant of Jacob Fred who lived in Callaway Co., MO and moved to Texas. Jacob was the father to John Fred who was the father to Felix Fred who was the father to Royce Fred my father. My sister and I have been able to track to Jacob but have no idea about whom Jacobs family were.I am wondering if your William could be a brother or Uncle perhaps.I will follow up with more information since I do not have it out right now, I have stayed up late looking for information and stumbled upon your query. I feel they must be related since both are from Callaway Co., MO. Any response is welcomed.Especially about your William and I will inkind send you more info. on Jacob tomorrow.
