My great-grandfather was named Peter Fries, and his son Edwin (or Edward)(AKA Ed) Arthur Fries was my grandfather. I know my Dad said that he went with his father to visit his grandfather in New York when he was very young. My grand mother told my dad that when he was only 3 years old his father died of cancer somewhere in New Jersey. My grandmother and her two brothers raised my dad on the farm I live on now just north of Scranton ,PA. My great-uncle before he died, told me that Ed Fries was re-married and may have had two kids before he died, but we don't know for sure. I would like to know myself if my dad has any half brothers or sisters. My dad said he remembers his mother telling him that they argued over what to name him. His father wanted his name to be Gordon Arthur Fries, so I wonder if he got his way and eventually had a son with that name. My dad was born in 1946, if that helps, and I think he was the oldest son of Ed Fries. I wonder if anyone else knows of a Peter Fries who had a son named Ed Arthur Fries. I don't have any dates other than my Dad's birth Date to go by. Please, Help!
