ii.

Mary "Polly" FRY was born on 10 February 1811 in Kentucky. She died on 4 May 1898 at the age of 87 in Pike County, Missouri.

Probably the daughter who was married to Joseph Barnett.

iii.

Nancy FRY was born in 1812 in Kentucky.

Nancy married a Reuben Underwood - the only daughter I cannot find in Pike Co in 1850. There was a Reuben Underwood, b. 1804 in KY living in Monroe Co, MO - his wife Nancy was 39 (born about 1811 in KY). their children had some names in common with this Fry family - Julia A, 15, Elizabeth 13, Amanda 12, Emily 9, James W., 6. Alfred, 4.
James M. Fry, age 35, lived with them, b. KY [since this seems to be Nancy's brother, I'm sure this is the correct Nancy Fry in this census)
and also Benjamin Underwood, age 18

308

iv.

William H. FRY was born about 1814 in Kentucky.

There are very many William Fry's in Missouri. Based on where he is listed with the other children, he would seem to fit here - his birth year is a guess.

309

v.

James FRY was born in 1815 in Kentucky.

Nancy married a Reuben Underwood - the only daughter I cannot find in Pike Co in 1850. There was a Reuben Underwood, b. 1804 in KY living in Monroe Co, MO - his wife Nancy was 39 (born about 1811 in KY). their children had some names in common with this Fry family - Julia A, 15, Elizabeth 13, Amanda 12, Emily 9, James W., 6. Alfred, 4.
James M. Fry, age 35, lived with them, b. KY [since this seems to be Nancy's brother, I'm sure this is the correct Nancy Fry and James W/M in this census)
and also Benjamin Underwood, age 18
