Yes Joan, I have the info you need! It's from the Genealogy library in Circleville Ohio, where our family has been since John Fry's parents came here about 200 years ago. John and Malinda Fry were the maternal grandparents of my great-grandmother. Imagine my surprise when I found an 1838 map at that library showing that their land was just across the road from land we bought and lived on! A gravestone bearing his name in the Ebenezer Cemetary down the road from there is so large, the tallest one there, that it can truly be called a monument. I also found a Pedigree Chart of Malinda Friend's ancestory, John Fry's obituary, a Fry Time Line, all in a manila envelope where other others have researched this family. And I think there is more if I look further. Get in touch with me!
