Hi Werner, I recently went through microfilm of the early Bibb Co. deeds.Here are some deeds I found involving Fryers, including your William. • A:77-78 -- 4 Apr 1829 - A. B. FRYER to Rebecca FRYER - $350 - sec. 24, T. 24, R. 10. Dower statement by Christina, wife of A. B. FRYER. Wit: ______ Rec: 6 July 1829. • B:150 – 1 June 1835 – William FRYER to Benjamin HARLESS – 80 acres – all of NW1/4 sec. 19 that is on south side of Cahaba River in T.24, R11E. Dower statement by Nancy FRYER, wife of William FRYER. (William Fryer bought this as a land grant in 1826) • B:164 – 5 Aug. 1835 - William FRYER Jr. to Abraham FRYER - $300 – W1/2NE1/4 sec. 24, T24R10E (William Fryer bought this as a land grant in 1826) • C:32 – 18 March 1837 – Abraham FRYER borrowed $221 from Lewis KENNEDY and put up W1/2NE1/4 sec. 24, T24R10E as security with promise to pay by Jan. 1838. • C:134 – 27 Nov. 1837 - William FRYER and wife Nancy to Henry DAVIS - $3000 E1/2NW1/4 & W1/2NE1/4 & E1/2NE1/4 sec. 14, T24R11E except for a part described in deed. (Not sure how William Fryer obtained this land; George WINTIN bought it as a land grant in 1826. • C:170 – 3 March 1838 – Henry HAGGARD to William FRYER – bought new land • C:172 – 3 March 1838 – Alexander HILL to William FRYER – bought more land • C:271 – 14 Aug. 1838 – George WINSTON (WINTIN?) to William FRYER – bought more land • C:296 – 21 Sept. 1838 – Abraham FRYER to Lewis KENNEDY - $900 sold his plantation (land that was mortgaged, see C:32).No wife dower statement.
Also, Richard Fancher gave permission for Sarah Fryer to marry Thomas Carleton in Aug. 1816 in Bibb Co. since she was underage; he must have been her legal guardian.Abraham Fryer posted bond with Benjamin Fancher when Benjamin married Winnie Fancher in 1829.Abraham B. Fryer died in Bibb Co. in 1844. I think John A., Rebecca, Abraham B., William, and Sarah Fryer were all siblings or at least cousins.There is also a Jeremiah Fryer that I have heard of on the internet that may be connected.Do you have any other documentation that connects these people?You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks, Kim Fancher
