In Reply to: Friedli Family in Langenthal, Bern, SWI by Kerri Hanley McIntosh of 40

Kerri: Andrew Friedli/Friedley/Fridley, etc. came to the U.S on the ship "Queen of Denmark" in 1751 to Philadelphia and settled in Franklin Co. Pa. He left behind a daughter, Barbara, who was not allowed to travel because of the dangers of the trip. There was a marriage between Andreas Fridli in Leiniswil, Bern Switzerland on 16 Feb 1749. He petitioned for immigration on April 21, 1751 as an inhabitant of Oberland from the Landvogtei district of Wangen(near Bern). In List of Swiss Emigrants in the Eighteenth Centruy to the American Colonies Vol II p.43 it states: "Andreas Fridli of Wackerschend left with his wife for Pennsylvania on May 29, 1751".
In the U.S. the family lived in Hundington Pa. for some generations. My branch went to Illinois. The name in Pa. was Friedley or Friedly and in Illinois during the Civil War it became Fridley. You should make inquiries with those names in Rootsweb and Genforum also. If you think there is a connection or need more, let me know. Bob
