I believe that William Haydon had been married to a daughter of Dr. Jacob Fry and Rebecca Kellar - she would have been his first cousin. This couple is found in Liberty Twp, Marion Co MO in 1840. Dr. Jacob Fry has never been placed in the Fry family I research - he does not belong to the family of James Fry many of whose children did settle in Marion Co.
William HAYDON and Rebecca FRY were married. Rebecca FRY, daughter of Jacob FRY and Rebecca KELLAR, was born (date unknown).
