Frederick Frei and his wife Elizabeth were enumerated in Unity Twp., Columbiana Co., OH in 1850 in the Federal Census.
Living with them is their son John Frye and his wife Margaret (Warner).Margaret dies as a result of childbirth in 1851 and John marries her sister, Catherine.
John and his first wife, Margaret,have a son, George Frederick Fry (I have this line). John and his second wife, Catherine, have two sons, James H. Frye (I have this line) and Sampson who is born abt. 1856.
I have no information on Sampson.Any help would be appreciated.
The only information I have on Frederick and Elizabeth Frei is from the 1850 Census, where Germany is shown as their birth place and both are born in 1780.
The 1820 Census for Columbiana Co., OH indicates Frederick Frye living in Beaver Twp. with his wife, one male under 16, 2 females under 10 and one female 16-26.He indicates that he is not naturalized and is engaged in agriculture.
In what limited church records and other documents I have, the name is spelled Frei, then Frye and then Fry as we get closer to the present.
