Re: Fry families of Greene Co PA
My maiden name is Frey.
My grandmother was was Fern Elizabeth Shackley. She married Carl Hartzel Frey on May 11, 1922. Carl was born 19 Oct 1901.
Carl's father was Daniel Palmer Frey from Lancaster, PA, (b 1865) and his mother was Edith Richardson (b 1875) from Defiance Co, OH.
Daniel's father was Isaac Frey, b 1836, Lancaster, PA, and died 2 July 1915, and Daniel's mother was Elizabeth Royer, b 1848, Hanfield, PA, d 23 Sep 1921, Defiance Co, OH.
Isaac's father was Daniel Frey, b before 1816, and his mother was Esther (Ester) Shaffer. Elizabeth's parents were Daniel Royer and Matilda Weidler, and they were married 4 Jan 1844 in Lancaster, PA.
The interesting story passed down my family is that one of our early Frey's changed their name from Fry or Frye due to the number of similar names in the Lancaster PA area.
Any family connections out there? I have been on familysearch.org, but no luck. I have also visited other Frey websites, but no lineage matches. This has been a brick wall for some time now.
Willing to share more information on the Frey's I do have.
