At on time I thought I knew alot about JOHN P FRITT(born c 1776-an estimate).As it turns out he and ETTJE BREESE, had a son named JOHN P FRITTS (b 1794) who I had confused with the father.
JOHN P. FRITTS Sr. may have been born in either Columbia County, NY (or possibly Great Barrington, MA).What I know for sure is that he and ETTJE start having children (John Peter Jr.) in Columbia Co?, in 1794.A daughter GERTRUY seems to have been born c 1802 in Columbia Co; RACHEL is born 28 Aug 1804, in West Copake, Columbia Co., NY.; and it appears a son, FRITZ FRITTS, is born sometime before 1820.
JOHN P (Sr or Jr?) and John P. Sr's daughter RACHEL (now married to FREDERICK ROHRABACHER), show up in Virgil, Cortland County, NY by 1835. By 1847 FREDERICK and RACHEL end up in Lyon Twp., Oakland County, MI. (I assume RACHEL's mother ETTJE and possibly her father JOHN P. FRITTS, moved with them).ETTJE dies in Michigan, 29 Oct 1865.Because of the confusion with JOHN P SR. and his son, JOHN P JR., I am not sure if JOHN P SR. died in Michigan or NY State.The son JOHN P died in Grand Blanc, Michigan in 1880.
I hope this is helpful.Please let me know what you know.
