Hi.

Questions about two geography CLUES which I HOPE will help in research of the VINCENT AND BENJAMIN (FRYE)FRY families: Where are the waters of the Uwharrie and where is Tom's Creek Baptist Church? I've been told they are in Southern Davidson County, but would like to be more specific about their location.

1. How can I get archives for Tom's Creek Baptist Church? Reportedly, a HENRY FRY was received into this church on 3-20-1813.

2. A VINCENT (FRYE)FRY is mentioned twice in a 2-27-1824 Davidson C. Deed of Trust in association with land on the waters of Uary (Uwharrie). Also, a land document of 3-1816 from Davidson County indicated that an ISAAC MORGAN, sold land on the waters of uwharrie adjoining the old line of BENJAMIN FRY to JEREMIAH PEARY.(Witnessed by BRIANT FRY). A Vincent Fry (b. 1763 in Rowan C. N.C., m. a Mary Snow, and moved to Greene C., Indiana in the 1820's. Benjamin (b. 1777) also moved to there too.

 

Have information to exchange and look forward to hearing from you! Randy Block (beelock4@aol.com)

Here are some facts which can be used to locate your NC landmarks using Mapquest or Tiger Maps, etc.:

 

Uwharrie River headwaters are near I-85 and Trinity (town) in NC

It runs south from there.

Uwharrie town (-80.00.14; 35.24.54) on SH 109

 

Tom's Creek town (-82.02.60; 35.44.24)

I have heard of Toms Creek Cemetery, but don't know if it is by this town site. One reference (LC: R782. M244) pg 20, simply puts it in Davidson Co. NC.

Dear Linda:

 

Thanks for providing map coordinates for the mouth of the Uwharrie River and for the town of Tom's Creek. I was trying to see if the location of a Vincent Fry (b.abt 1763) - who lived along the waters of Uwharrie in about 1824, and Benjamin Fry - who lived along these waters in about 1816 - were very close to the offspring of a Johann Peter Fry who lived in Forsyth County (created from Southern Stokes County in 1849). My interpretation of your coordinates suggests that the mouth of the Uwharrie is south of Forsyth County and just east of the present day Davidson County border. Furthermore, I have found property records for George Fry, an offspring of Peter Fry in Davidson County. This suggests a relationship between my Fry's and the offspring of Peter Fry, whose ancestry is described on the Forsyth County GenWeb page.

 

On the other hand, your coordinates for the town of Tom's Creek are on the far western part of NC and are not close to Davidson County. However, I have been able to order LDS microfilmed records for Tom's Creek Church (where Henry Fry was a member). These records confirm that Tom's Creek Church is in Davidson County.

 

Thanks again for responding to my appeal. Randy

Randy, My James Fry and Sarah Pickett were married in Greene County Indiana 1841. I believe that he is the son of Vincent Fry and Mary Snow. I would very much like to have any information on Vincent Fry, his siblings, children, parents. If you haven't located the streams of water in question, I think I can solve that, when I get to the library. Looking forward to haring from you. Coralee

There is a Tom's Creek Primitive Baptist Church located in

Davidson County. I visited there on a recent trip back to NC ( I spent my first 41 years in NC, having decended from the Frey/Fry/Fry's of Rowan/Davidson County. I am also looking for one of the many, MANY Henry Fry's of this era.

It seems that almost every male child born of this lineage had the name HEINRICH as his first or middle name, and most were called Henry at one time or another. It has developed into quite a maze. If I can be of any further help, please let me know.

Dear Bill:

 

Thank you for posting a response to my query regarding a Henry Fry in Davidson County's Tom's Creek Church. You mentioned that you are descended from a Henry (Heinrich) Fry and noted that, unfortunately, there a many with that name. Please tell me a bit more about your Fry ancestry. I had posted information about a Vincent Fry (b.abt. 1763 in Rowan C) who is the ancestor of a friend of mine. Vincent married a Mary Snow in NC in abt. 1798 and moved to Greene C., Indiana before May 1822. This couple had a son named William Henry Fry (b. 15 Jan 1817)who married a Carolina Brassfield in 1840 in Monroe C., Indiana (near Greene C., IN). Do you see any connections?

 

I look forward to hearing from you.

Randy:

I have been researching the Frey/Fry/Frye lineage for about 9 years now. I can go with absolute certainty to 1836, the birth of my greatgreat grandfather, James T. Fry. (His children changed the spelling to Frye) Unfortunately, I am not certain who his parents are, as there are 2 James Fry's

in the 1840 Rowan census showing the same age, and in different households. One shows parents of Nathan and Sarah Fry, and the other shows only a mother, Keziah Fry. I do find a Nathan Fry in earlier censuses, and living next door to one of the Henry Fry's. Here again, it is impossible to tell WHICH Henry Fry.....and as there are MANY of the Frey/Fry's with Henry/Heinrich as part of their names, that makes it so difficult. And...there is no certainty that Nathan was even decended from this Henry Fry, as there are no other records on him besides the census. However...I have traced this lineage back to the mid 1500's in Switzerland. They came to America in 1733, in Pennsyvania,

and moved to NC in 1755 to establish the Moravian community of Salem, NC (Winston-Salem today). I have seen SO MANY pedigree charts going back to this family, and SO MANY errors. I have visited Salem many times and poured over the Moravian records ( which are VERY complete and precise).

I have visited the cemetaries and churches...but am still at this brick wall. As for Vincent Fry...I have seen his name in some of my files...I will look him up and write you when I find him. Thanks for you input.

Bill, I just read with great interest you letter to Randy, in November 1999. I wonder if you have made any progress in learning of the origin of your James T. Fry. Off and on for about 30 years I have wrestled with the origin of my 3rd great grandfather James Fry, who married Sally Pickett in 1841, Greene Co. Indiana . There is some reason to believe that he is son of Vincent Fry and Mary Snow, but no solid proof. I am familiar with the Moravian Frys and many years ago, a lady worked hard to connect my James to them, however it was never proven to my satisfaction. I would like to learn of any thoughts that you have on this Fry puzzle. If my James is not yours, perhaps you have something on him in you files. Looking forward to hearing from you. Coralee Paull
