I don't have alot of information for you.However, I have a copy of his card from the 1880 census.It shows Elkany Fryman, age 46, birthplace Kentucky. Buena Vista District. Wife, Armilda Fryman, age 43, son Henry Thomas,age 13 & son William Ira??, age 6.It then shows a Daniel Wagoner, age 69,also living in the household.It's hard to make out, but I think the relationship is uncle.I am not certain of that however. All above listed show birthplace as Kentucky.
