Inherits father's land in Pike County, according to his father's will.
Land Patent issued to Jacob Fry as assignee of Squire Anderson, 10 Dec 1827, in Pike Co. It was a cash sale for 80 acres in Section 24, T 53N, R 2W, the East half of the SE quarter.
There was also a patent issued to William H. Fry on 28 Jul 1838 for 40 acres in Pike Co, located in Section 23, T 53N, R 2W, the NE 1/4 of the NE 1/4. I cannot identify this man. Could this have been a son of Jacob?
