When I started searching my roots, I started with Frailey and was surprised to find so much information on the family.
We learned in the Will of Daniel Frolich, who was married to Dorethea that our Daniel's first name was Augustus and he is indeed a brother to Frederich Frolich.
I have seen it posted that Augustus Daniel was the deceased and he was married to Dorethea but if you read the Will carefully it states that Daniel married to Dorethea has died and Augustus Daniel married to Elisabeth is his Oldest son.
We now have documentation of Daniel's parents. We are trying to connect the Johann Daniel Frelich who came to the United States on the ship the Winter Galley, to Daniel Frolich from the Will.
Johann Daniel gives his age as 39 on September of 1738 which means he was born in 1699.
If our Daniel was born about 1750, Johann Daniel would have been 51 years old. Did Johann Daniel have family with him when he arrived? The ship report just says how many women and children not who they were.
We could be missing a generation or not.
My genealogy report has Johann Daniel as the grandfather of our Daniel who married Elizabeth for the time being until it can be proven if he was his grandfather or father.
