Ward Fry...1917....Spencer TX
Posted by: Lorraine Doty (ID *****4553) Date: March 14, 2009 at 15:45:18
  of 1676

I am looking for Ward Fry, possibly Marvin Ward Fry. He was the son of Joseph Dennis Fry (went by Dennis) and Addie (Coolie) Fry. Addie and Dennis were from Indiana. He worked for railroad and transferred to Missouri where Ward was born.

1910 Census shows Ward born in Missouri age 17 as a boarder of another family. Shows machinist by trade.

1910 Census shows Dennis in Paris TX with Addie and all their other children but not Ward.

1917 WWI Registration shows Marvin Ward Fry born same date in Missouri in Sherman Texas wife wife and 3 children (unnamed in this document) where his occupation is machinist.

I lose him at this point. Dennis and Addie are buried in Paris, Texas.

All I had before I found census was Grandma's notes of Ward's birthdate and and a couple of pictures of him. It is common practice in this family to go by middle name though. His father and his uncle James Henderson Fry both went by their middle names.

Any help on this brick wall would be appreciated. Lorraine
