I have no idea where the brother and sister were from, but Captain Fred lived in NYC.
Captain John Fred was a wealthy man with considerable property and a number of slaves. He might have been involved in the slave trade from Curacao, possibly with his wife's brother Benjamin Herring.
I would love to correspond with anyone who has early information on the Fred family of any nature whatever.
It seems that this Fred family is mainly known from the south, but there must be some connection of this southern family to Captain John Fred.
