Witnessed by Peter Steckel and his Wife. From a typed note I have the of location of Newport , Lycoming County, Pennsylvania as the Frye home. It says they moved to Fredonia, Calhoun County, Michigan. Also note the spelling of Frye. I do not know the author of this note, It may have been a from a branch of the family that added the "e" to the end of the name, as the spelling of the name has included Frey, Fry, and Frye throughout the years. It may have also been from member of the family a generation or two removed from the name. Adding the "e" could be an easy mistake if the name was just given to you orally by a grandparent or an aunt of uncle. As for the location, Newport is located in Luzern County, Pennsylvania. I believe several members of this family were born there. Census records show Elias and several other Fry family members living in Fairfield Township, Lycoming County, Pennsylvania in 1850. The 1850 census shows his name as Eli, and his occupation as being a farmer. It gives his age as 36 which would place his birth in 1814 not 1813 as listed in the note. The 1850 census also lists Eli's wife, Mary, and his children, Henry, Charles, Katherine, Maria, John, and Geroge. All of these names are consistant with the typed note. The remainder of the children were born after 1850.
