First Generation
—————————————————————————————————————————————



 

1. Jacob Feyock/Veyock/Fyack. Jacob died on 14 Feb 1792 in Plainfield, Northampton, Pennsylvania. Buried on 14 Feb 1792 in Somewhere on his own land.

Research: Pennsylvania Archive Series V - pg. 143

Jacob Fyoike is listed as part of First Company, Second Battalion under command of Colonel Roup - entry dated 22 May 1781.

Oaths of Allegiance Northampton County 1777-1784

Jacob Frock - 5 August 1777

Research: The earliest record of the Fye Family is found in tax records, church records, and possibly Revolutionary War records for a Jacob Feyock of Northampton County, Pennsylvania. Although we know our family name at this time to be Fye, there is significant proof that it was not always so, but rather Feyock, and that Jacob Feyock is indeed our distant ancestor. This can be proven quite conclusively by examining the will of Jacob Feyock, Orphan Court Records (which list his widow and children), church records (in which the names of the children are given as Fey), land records (which identify his son Michael as Michael Fey and Michael Fiock), and tax and land records (which give us the history of David Fiock from 1811 to 1829 in which we identify a name change from Fiock to Fyack to Fey to Fye).

As to the origins of Jacob Feyock, we do not have a lot of information. His name appears as Jacob Veyock, Jacob Fayok, Jacob Fyock, and Jacob Viock (the "V" and "F" sounds being interchangeable in the German language used in that day) in some early church records for Nazareth Township. We know these to be the same individual since the last names are cognate names, the list of his children consist of John Michael, David, and Elizabeth in several deeds and court records, and there is no other individual with a similarly sounding name in Plainfield Township, Northampton County, Pennsylvania, or for that anywhere else in Pennsylvania at the time. So whether the original name was Veyock or Feyock needs to be researched, but most likely was Veyock as the "V" sound shifted to an "F" sound in English. There is a record of a Jacob Feiock arriving from Rotterdam on the ship Sarah on 20 September 1764. This may be our Jacob Feyock, but at this time no further proof is available to definitively make this connection. In the Pennsylvania Archive Series we find a Jacob Fiock of Northampton County listed under the command of Col. Daniel Broadhead for the year 1776. Although not proven, this is very likely our Jacob Feyock as Col. Daniel Broadhead commanded the Pennsylvania Rifle Regiment from Northampton County. There is a record of another Jacob Feyock in Cumberland County, Pennsylvania, so research will be required to determine which one is which.  However, it is most likely the case that Jacob Feyock was in Northampton County in 1776 and participated in the Revolutionary War.

Jacob next appears in the 1788 tax record for Plainfield Township, and in the 1790 census for Northampton County, Plainfield Township, as Jacob Fiack. He is listed with two sons, both under sixteen, one male (himself) and one female (Christina). Schoeneck church records from Northampton County give us the names of two of his children. John Michael was born 13 July 1785 and Elizabeth was born 13 September 1790. The birth record for David has not been found yet, but his birth year has been identified to be about 1787/1788. By the way, this would explain why Elizabeth was not on the 1790 census, as she had not yet been born.

Schoeneck church records also give us the account of the death of Jacob Fayok. A record dated 14 February 1792 states that Jacob died of an apparent  heart attack (apoplexy), and was buried in a grave on his own land in Plainfield Township. The actual, translated record is as follows

February 14th, 1792 - Our neighbor Fayok, who had worked in the village, in Gnadenthal and Christian Spring as day-laborer for many years, was found this afternoon, not far from Gnadenthal on the meadow dead in the snow. At once a jury of brethren from the village and from Gnadenthal besides our doctor were called together, and it was found by the investigation of the body, that probably apoplexy had killed him. A day before he had been in Christian Spring and Gnadenthal, and he had lamented, that he did not feel well. Towards 4 o'clock he went home, and he found near to Gnadenthal his end. The brethren Schnall and Steinmann buried him on his property, and Br. Schnall sang, when the body was lowered into the grave, a few hymns. He leaves behind a widow with 3 children, who are baptized bythe brethren.

A will, dated 9 March 1792 corroborates this account, and lists his wife, Christina, and three minor children, Michael, David, and Elizabeth. As Jacob died intestate, the land remained in limbo until 1807 when John Michael, having become 21 years of age, petitioned the court and had the land sold to a George Butz. Land records list this sale and describe the property as consisting of 63 acres and a log cabin in Plainfield Township. In the deed describing this sale, we find that Jacob originally received this land in the form of a land patent dated 4 June 1790.

The actual will of Jacob Feyock gives us a glimpse into the life of the average family in Northampton County in 1792. Since Jacob died intestate, there is no actual will from him, but we do have letters of administration for a Michael Knows (the actual name is Knausse) signed by Jacob's widow Christina. The text of the letter of administration is as follows:

Know all men by these presents that I Christina Feyock widow relief of Jacob Feyock, late of Moore Township in the County of Northampton & Commonwealth of Pennsylvania deceased. Whereas the said Jacob Feyock died intestate leaving the said Christina and three minor children, and the said Christina being willing that the Estate of the said deceased be well and faithfully administered and disposed of according to Law, Do Hereby require and empower Michael Knows of the said County Yeoman for me and my place to take upon him the administration of the said Estate according to Law. And I do hereby request John Arnot Esq Requiter ?? to grant letters of administration to the said Michael Knows for the purposes aforesaid. In Witness whereof I have hereto put my hand & seal this seventh day of March Anno Domini 1792. Catharina X Feyock (her mark) Sealed and delivered in the presence of Willis Henry.

We also have a list of the property owned by Jacob Feyock at the time of his death written in old German script using both English and German words. We were able to get most of the itemized list translated, and the results are as follows:

From an examination of the will and the list of property, we led to believe that Jacob and Christina were far from being wealthy. They appeared to have the bare necessities required to live in that part of the country. They were obviously farmers, although the possession of many of the listed tools would lead one to believe that carpentry was a possible secondary source of income. In the church records we find that Jacob's occupation is listed as laborer and day worker, which would fit with this conclusion. We do know that David Feyock/Fey, son of Jacob, was a carpenter and joiner as that is what is listed in the tax records for Lower and Upper Nazareth.

After Jacob's death, the family seemingly split up, or most likely, was absorbed into the Moravian Community in Nazareth Township. We have no real further record of Christina at this point except a couple of references in the Moravian Church records of Nazareth and a hint that she was apparently still alive in 1807, as a Mortgage record from Northampton Deed Records, Book 2, page 93, states that Christina was to receive a yearly sum of £6.9.2 half-penny during her natural life, which would imply she was still alive at the time of that record. The two church record references are dated 11 August 1793 and 14 December 1793. In the first record it is recorded that the widow Anna Christina Feyin was received into the Nazareth congregation, and in the second that she received her first communion as a member of the Moravian Church.

As to her death, and place of burial, we have no further record at this time. A search of all burial records for the Moravian Church in Nazareth, as well as civil death and burial records, give us no information as to her death, or the death of Elizabeth, David, and Michael. Interestingly, however, we do have an account of the death of her sister. A record from the Nazareth Moravian Church Diary dated 26 February 1788 states that "neighbor Fayok" found the sister of his wife dead in the woods of apparent apoplexy. Christina's sister is not named, but apparently she suffered from epilepsy or some other form of mental illness and so her death was not surprising. Because of some reluctance on the part of the Moravian brethren in that area, she was not permitted to be buried in the churchyard, so she was buried quietly on the land owned by Jacob and Christina Feyock in Plainfield Township.

Since Christina was apparently unable to provide for her children (they were of ages 1, 4, and 6), John Michael (Michael), David, and Elizabeth were put in the care of a Christian Frederick Steinman (Orphan's Court Record dated 10 April 1792). Christian Steinman was the caretaker, or steward, of Gnadenthal, a Moravian Community in Nazareth Township, and which today is the site of a home for the aged. On 14 January 1800, John Schnall, the new steward of Gnadenthal, is named guardian of Michael (now over age 14), David, and Elizabeth, the latter two being less than 14 years old. On 22 August 1806, David is appointed a new guardian, Mathais Miller, and Elizabeth is appointed a new guardian, Frederick Beitel. Michael is not listed, as he would have been 21 years of age at this time and apparently lived on his own. One final Orphan Court record, dated 21 November 1806, lists Michael as receiving the property of his father Jacob, and listed in the record are David, Elizabeth, and Christina.  Census records confirm this as we find an 1800 census entry for John Schnall, and an 1810 census entry for Frederick Beitel and Mathaias Miller.

Examining all of this material allows us to draw some further conclusions about our ancestor Jacob Feyock. The first of these is that apparently there were no relatives of Jacob in Northampton County, and most likely in the rest of Pennsylvania as well. The reason for this is that we cannot find any census records of other Feyocks (including all cognate spellings of the name) in the Northampton area for the years 1790, 1800, and 1810, and the fact that the children were sent to foster homes, orphanages, or were absorbed into the Moravian community after the death of Jacob. If there had been any other family, they would have most likely found a home with them. This also applies to Christina. We do know of a sister, but other than that, there is no record of any of her extended family in the area. If there was some extended family there, then most likely she would have been able to stay with them along with her children. Another piece of data that would support this conclusion is the fact there is no mention of any other relatives of Jacob in the probate records surrounding his will. The only family mentioned in the will, and in the Orphan Court Records, is Christina, Michael, David, and Elizabeth.

So, after the death of Jacob Feyock, Michael, David, and Elizabeth were remanded to the care of Christian Steinman. Of course, we can never know the real reason Christina placed the children in other homes. Michael would have been about 7 years of age, David 5, and Elizabeth 2 when their father died. Perhaps Christina had no way to provide for the children and no one to run the farm on which she lived. Having three small children with no source of income would have made the raising of a family impossible in those days.

Since we have no record of any siblings or parents of Jacob and Christina, we can safely say, at this time, that they were first generation immigrants to Northampton County. They apparently spoke German, were part of the Moravian community and hence Pennsylvania Dutch, and had no other family members living close to them. Unless some record can be found giving us the marriage of Jacob and Christina, all we can say is that they arrived in Northampton some time prior to 1785 (1776 if the information about Jacob Fiock belongs to our Jacob Feyock). As to any other children they may have had who died in infancy, we have no record at this time.

Research: Michael Feyock/Fey is first found in the records of the Schoeneck Moravian church. In a record dated 19 July 1785 we are told that Jacob Veyock requested that someone baptize his son who was born 13 July 1785. A record in the actual Nazareth Moravian Church Record written in old German lists a Johann Michael Fey son of Jacob and Anna Christina Fey of Plainfield Township as having been born 14 July 1785 and baptized 19 July 1785. Orphan Court records tell us that after his father's death, Michael was first assigned Christian Steinman as a guardian, then later John Schnall. He next appears in some deeds dated 1807 where he was given the land first patented by his father, Jacob, then sold that same property to a George Butz. The property description is for the 63 acres of land and log cabin in Plainfield Township mentioned above. The most important thing that this particular deed does is show that Michael Fey was also known as Fyock, Feyock, and Fiok. This proves that at this time we have a transition from the Feyock to Fey surname. After 1807, we find no other record anywhere in Northampton for Michael Fey. He does not appear in any tax lists, nor does he appear in any deeds or census records. Where he went, or what happened to him, is unknown at this time. 

3. David Fey. Born abt 1787 in Plainfield, Northampton, Pennsylvania. David died in Upper Nazareth, Northampton, Pennsylvania, abt 1829; he was 42.

Research: 1800 Census - Nazareth, Northampton

    1-0-3-0-5 : 4-3-4-3-3

Most likely David and Michael are two of the males 16-26 and Elizabeth is one of the females 0-10.  Christina may be one of the females 26-45 as it is most likely she stayed there in the home with her children although we have no proof of this at this time.

1810 Census - Moore, Northampton, Pennsylvania

Matthias Miller

    3-2-1-1-0: 2-1-0-1-0

David may be one of the males listed here, but this brings up the question as to where Polly is at this time.  Our research seems to indicate David and Polly married about 1808 or thereabouts, so we have a question as to where David is in 1810 as no separate census entry exists for him, and he does not show up in tax records until 1811.  The possibility exists that he and Polly are married at this time, but living with another family, or in one of the Moravian communities in Northampton County.  A deed record for 1874 in which Mary Fye leaves her land to her daughter Catherine Schoneaberger indicates that the land she left her daughter came into her possession in 1810.

Research: David Fey, unfortunately, does not appear in any church records that have been examined to date except for one reference dated 14 February 1792 in which it is said that the Moravian Brethren had baptized all three children of the deceased Jacob Fyock. Records searched include the Schoeneck Church Records, Moravian Church Archives in Nazareth, and the Moravian Church Diary translated into English in 1933. Orphan Court Records, however, list David as being the son of Jacob and Christina Feyock and give the names of his guardians as first being Christian Steinman then John Schnall. David is also mentioned in the Deed dated 24 January 1807 in which he is listed with his sister Elizabeth. It is possible that David lived with a family that was not closely connected to the Moravian Community in Nazareth Township, and as a result did not appear in those church records. Even though we do not have church records for David, we know of his existence and relationship through Court and Deed records.

Connecting David Fey to David Feyock and thence to Jacob Feyock is not too difficult. Church records and court records appear to favor the name Fey after the death of Jacob Feyock. An examination of tax records for Lower and Upper Nazareth Townships in Northampton County list a David Feyock/Fyock/Fyack/Friock/Fiack/Frock/Fiock/Fey. The actual list for all of the Feys listed between 1811 and 1860 are as follows:

Several notes can be made about the above lists as it relates to David Fey. After 1826, the name appears to stabilize as Fey whereas earlier we can find seven different spellings of the name. An 1820 Census record also exists for a David Fyack (the tax record lists David's last name as Fyack for 1819), and lists three sons, ages 0-10, 2 daughters, age 0-10, one daughter age 10-16, one male, age 26-45, and one female, age 26-45. No doubt, this is the census entry for David Fey.

David last appears in the tax list in 1829, where his name has been crossed off. Apparently, this is because he had died just prior to that time, probably early 1829. In 1831, we have an entry for a widow Fey and two un-named children of school age. Since Maria is mentioned in 1829, then apparently changes to Polly in 1841, we have a strong hint that Mary and Polly are the same person. This is strengthened by the fact that there is no other Fey's listed in the tax records with which to get confused.

Tax records fill in a bit more information on David Fye. He has children listed in the tax records of the name George (1828, 1829), Chaterina (1828, 1829), and Joseph (1828). An un-named daughter and son are also listed for 1831 with ages that would not fit the above children. This gives us five listed children of David and Maria from tax records. However, we may be able to identify two additional children of David and Maria. In 1829 we have a Tomes Fey listed, who also appears as Thomas Fey in 1830 and 1831. Once a young man reached the age of 21 he would start appearing in the tax records, so this would imply a birth date for Thomas around 1808. In 1836 we next find an Elias Fey listed, who also is found to live with a Polly Fye in the 1850 Census. Elias would then have been born about 1815 or so, which matches what we know of his birthday. In 1848 we find the names of Joseph, George, and Charles Fey in the tax records, and in the 1850 census we do indeed find the same individuals in Northampton County.

The only problem at this time in identifying Elias and Thomas as sons of David and Mary Fye is the fact that we do not have any positive record stating their relationship. We have not yet uncovered any church records or birth record that would positively link them as sons. The fact that they are related to David and Mary is a near certainty. There are no other families in Northampton with the name Fey to which they could belong. The only remote possibility is that they are the children of John Michael Fey, but the problem with this is that we cannot find any records anywhere of John Michael Fey in Northampton after 1807. If he was there, we would find him somewhere in the tax records, and at this time we have not. Also, if Thomas and Elias were sons of Michael Fey, then where is Michael in 1810? There are no census records in all of Pennsylvania that list anyone close to that name. Additionally, if Thomas and Elias were orphans of Michael, then we would have records of them in the Orphan's court as there would have had to be some record of their new guardians. The bottom line about Michael is this, we can't find him anywhere in Pennsylvania after 1807. The likelihood of him being the father of Thomas and Elias is pretty slim.

In spite of the fact we have no positive proof identifying Thomas and Elias as children of David and Mary, we have significant circumstantial evidence that would point that way. First of all, Elias is seen living with Polly Fye in 1850. We can identify Polly as Mary, Polly being a nickname or short name for possibly Appolonia. This would, of course, imply a relationship between Elias and Polly. Secondly, Elias named his first three children Mary, John, and David, and a last daughter Lydia. Mary and David would fit with the names of his alleged parents David and Mary, and John and Lydia were the names of Eliza Lear Fye's parents. Additionally, David Fye's parents were John Jacob and Christian, so John could be a reference to David's father. Also, Elias' first son who had children, David, named his three sons David, John, and Charles. As noted above, David and Mary had a son named Charles, which may be where David got the name for his son. No proof here, but strong evidence.

Thirdly, Thomas named three of his sons John, Jacob David, and George, and his oldest daughter Mary. All four names belong to the Fey nameset. Fourthly, Thomas disappears from Northampton County after 1831, but then re-appears in Mercer County in 1840. Sometime in the 1850s, Elias Fye moves across the state of Pennsylvania and takes up residence less than two miles from where Thomas resided in Mercer County. We find his daughter Adeline staying in a home with a David Reeher according to the 1860 census for Mercer County. Louisa Fye, a daughter of Thomas, married George W. Reeher, David’s brother. In 1880, Elias is seen living next to Thomas Fye's son, John, in Wayne County, Ohio, and in the 1890's, Elias' son William purchases John Fye's property after John's death. The bottom line is that there are significant linkages between Elias and Thomas, as apparently Elias followed Thomas and his family across the nation.

Fifthly, and a little more tenuously, we find in 1850 that Joseph Fye, a suspected brother of Elias, is living one dwelling from John and Lydia Lehr in Allen Township. John and Lydia were the parents of Eliza, the wife of Elias. Other evidence found in the will of Mary Fye, wife of John Fye, son of Thomas, would seem to indicate that Mary's maiden name was Lear. This is all somewhat circumstantial, but names and locations suggest these connections as a possibility.

Now we come to the question of Polly Fye. In 1840 we have a Polly Fey listed in Northampton County, Upper Nazareth Township, and in 1850 her name is given as Polly Fye. Tax lists, starting in 1841, list Polly Fey who appears in the tax records all the way through 1860. So, what we have is this person Polly Fye, and at the same time we note that Mary Fye seems to disappear. Could they be the same person? Well, a careful examination of land records fills this in for us. A deed dated 10 August 1868 records the transfer of land from Mary Fye to Catherine Schoneberger, the daughter of Mary Fye. A quick look at census records identifies Catherine Schoneberger with Chaterine Fey mentioned in the tax records for 1828 and 1829. The description of the land states that Mary Fye had lived on this land over 50 years, and a list of adjoining properties include names of individuals that appear next to Polly Fye on both the 1840 and 1850 censuses. A quick examination of the ages for Polly and Mary show a close match. We therefore conclude positively that Polly Fye and Mary Fye is the same individual. Another deed, dated 22 December 1827, records the sale of land from David and Mary Fey to a John Stengor. Again, the description of the property includes names that appear right next to Polly Fye on the 1840 and 1850 censuses. Final proof is seen in that one of the daughters of Catherine Fye Schoneberger is named Maria, but on the census records she appears as Polly. Polly Fye is Mary Fye!

One more item of interest can be discovered regarding Mary Fye. An International Genealogical Index (IGI) record for Joseph Fye lists his parents as David Fye and Mary Schwartz. An examination of census records lists several Schwartz families in Northampton County. One in particular lists a daughter of the exact age necessary to be the wife of David Fye, and places the family in Upper Nazareth Township. At this time, we have no proof that Mary's maiden name was Schwartz, but apparently someone thought it sufficiently plausible to put it into the IGI.

David married Maria “Polly” Schwartz. Born on 10 Dec 1786 in Northampton, Pennsylvania. Maria “Polly” died in Northampton, Pennsylvania, on 28 Jun 1879; she was 92. 

Marriages and Deaths - Northampton County 1871-1884, Volume II p. 487

Fey, Mrs. Polly - Widow of David Fey.  Died 28 June 1879, at Bath.  Aged 92 years, 6 months, 18 days.  (Argus)

Research: Polly is identified as Elias’ mother via the 1850 census, in which Elias is shown living with her, and according to family history.  Additional proof is obtained by analyzing tax records and land records from Northampton County which identifies Polly with Maria Fey, wife of a David Fey.  Final proof is obtained from family history passed down from Mary Ann Fye Bacon, in which it was stated that Elias’ mother was Polly.

Her last name is found in an IGI record for Joseph Fye, in which his parents are listed as David Fye and Maria Schwartz.

They had the following children:
 5 i. Thomas (~1808-~1865)
 6 ii. Elizabeth (~1810-)
 7 iii. John Elias “Ayle” (~1814-1895)
 8 iv. George (~1816-)

Frederick Beitel

    1-2-1-1-1: 0-1-2-0-1

Orphan court records indicate Elizabeth was staying with Frederick Beitel as her guardian.  If so, she would be one of the girls listed here, age 16-26.

Research: Maria Elisabetha Fey first appears in the birth and christening records for the Schoeneck Moravian Church in Upper Nazareth. A record dated 13 September 1790 lists her christening and the names of her parents, Johann Jacob and Christina Veiok. She next appears in several Orphan Court Records, all mentioned above, as well as several entries in the Moravian Church Diary where her name appears as Elizabeth Feyock (4 June 1802), and Elizabeth Fey (4 May 1808). She is also mentioned in the Deed dated 24 Jan 1807 as being the sister of Michael Fey of Nazareth Township. Further research revealed a record in the Moravian Church Archives in Nazareth dated 21 March 1804 in which she is listed, along with several other females, as part of a girl's choir, and another record dated 19 March 1808 in which she was confirmed by Abraham Reinke. One final record, dated 13 September 1790, lists her baptism and states she was the daughter of Jacob and Anna Christina Fey. After 1808, however, we have no further record of Elizabeth at this time. Most likely she married, but until we can find a marriage record, we cannot draw any further conclusions.
 

Third Generation
—————————————————————————————————————————————

5. Thomas Fye. Born abt 1808 in Plainfield, Northampton, Pennsylvania. Thomas died in Mercer, Pennsylvania, abt 1865; he was 57.

Research: The earliest, identifiable, ancestor in the Mercer County, Pennsylvania, area is that of Thomas Fye. I will use the last name of Fye, although in the 1840 Census his name is given as Fey/Fay, in 1850 as Frye, and in 1860 as Fye. We know this is the same person by comparing the list of children given in each census. The census records for Thomas Fye are listed as follows with birthdates derived from the census data:

1840 Thom Fey [Fay?]

  1 male – 0-5 - (?)
  2 males – 5-10 - (George, Reuben)
  2 males – 10-15 - (John, ?)
  1 male 30-40 - (Thomas)
  1 female – 0-5 - (Sarah)
  2 females – 5-10 - (Mary, ?)
  1 female 30-40 - (Mary)

1850  Thomas Frye - b. 1800

  Mary Frye - b. 1800
  John - b. 1829
  Reuben - b. 1831
  Mary - b. 1833
  George - b. 1834
  Sarah - b. 1838
  David - b. 1840
  Louise - b. 1845
  Alice - b. 1847

1860  Thomas Fye - b. 1806

  Mary Fye - b. 1807
  George - b. 1833
  David - b. 1839
  Louisa - b. 1843
  Alice - b. 1847

Note that the names of the children on the 1850 census are the same as those on the 1860 census. This identifies these two families as the same family. Additionally, if you compare the ages of the children in the 1850 census with the 1840 census, we have a close match.

Now, the question remains, how is this Thomas connected to our line? We know that we have a John and Jacob David who were brothers (we find this from the will of Mary Fye, wife of John, dated 1896 – WOMF), and our speculation was that Elias Fye was also their brother since his two sons, David and William, are listed as nephews (WOMF). However, this does not make sense given the age differences between these three supposed brothers. Elias was born about 1814, John 1829, and Jacob David 1843. The 29-year span between Jacob David and Elias is too large to be attributed to the same parents (although the father could have remarried). Still, even if that was the case, we know that often Elias Fye went by the name of John Elias Fye or Ayle (according to Ora Kasten). There would be no way he could be John, and have a brother John. So, the best explanation is that Elias and John are not brothers. However, the question of the relationship of Elias to Thomas is answered by using the information we find in the Northampton County tax records. Elias and Thomas were almost certainly brothers. This makes much more sense, as their ages are much closer. It would also explain the close affinity the family of Elias had with the family of Thomas. That would make John and Jacob David nephews of Elias.

However, the will of Mary Fye is still confusing. In her will she specifically mentions that Jacob David Fye is her brother-in-law, and that David and William Fye (sons of Elias) are her nephews along with a Samuel Siegfried, and that a Susannah Siegfried is her niece. The reason this is confusing is that at first glance, for David and William to be nephews of Mary, it would imply that John was a brother to Elias. This is very unlikely given the age differences between Elias and John as mentioned above. So how can David and William be Mary's nephews if John is not Elias' brother? Simple! Mary was the sister of Eliza Fye, wife of Elias. We know that the names of the parents of Samuel and Susannah Siegfried were Isaac and Lovina Lear. The death certificate of Samuel Siegfried confirms this. The only way for Samuel, Susannah, David, and William to all be Mary's nephews and niece is that Mary be a Lear. An examination of the 1850 Census for John and Lydia Lehr in Northampton County list a daughter, Mary, who is the exact age of Mary, the wife of John as found in her death record in 1893. In fact, in the will of Mary Fye she lists a sister, Elizabeth, which most likely is Eliza Fye, wife of Elias. So, if this is true, then we have a double connection between Thomas Fye's family and Elias Fye's family. Elias and Thomas are brothers, and the wife of Elias and the wife of Thomas' son John are sisters!

So, having established the connection between Thomas and Elias, let us get back to the family of Thomas Fye. John, Jacob David (known as David), Reuben, and George are all brothers. We have census records from Lawrence County for a David Fye and Reuben Fye. If we compare these names with the records for Thomas, we can identify these men as brothers. Their last names are the same, they share a common set of names for their children, and they are buried about 80 feet apart in the Clinton Cemetery in Lawrence County, and their birth dates match when comparing the Census records from Lawrence Country with that of Thomas Fye in Mercer County. In the Clinton Cemetery, we find a tombstone for Fye with the inscriptions: Ruben – son, Thomas – son, Ruben – father, Anna – mother. There are no dates, but a 1900 census lists a Ruben Fye, Jennie Fye, and children Frances, Thomas, Viola, Ruben, George F, Charles E, and Howard. There is also a death record for a Ruben Fye killed in a mining accident with parents Ruben and Annie. His age is given as 16, which matches exactly with the Ruben Fye listed as the child of Ruben and Jennie on the census. Thus, the grave in Clinton Cemetery is that of Ruben and Anna, along with two of their sons, Thomas and Ruben. This, then, is the connection between Jacob David and Ruben.

Another interesting connection between Jacob David and Reuben exist when census records for 1860 are examined. There we find a record for a Reuben Fie and Rachel, and living with them is a Leonard Ziegler, age 22. Leonard Ziegler (Sigler) is the father of Emma Sigler who married Jacob David Fye’s son Samuel. Undoubtedly, Samuel Fye was introduced to his future wife through his uncle who was a close friend of Leonard Sigler.

In Hickory Township, there is a tombstone for a George W. Fye. The actual tombstone reads: Father George W. 1831-1906, Mother Nancy J. 1841-1913, son Charles 1869-1912, son Harry E. 1879-1917, daughter Isabel 1883-1935, daughter Mary F. 1877-1953, and grandmother Hannah J. Glass. This would have to be the brother of Jacob David and John. The birth date matches exactly to that of George, the son of Thomas, and the location, Hickory Township, is the same. There is also a census record for 1870, which lists George, Nancy, Charlie, and Hannah that links all four together, and again gives us the birth date needed to identify him as the brother of Jacob David and John.

Now, how is John Fye from Wayne County related? Well, he is the brother of Jacob David according to the WOMF. She specifically mentions J. D. Fye from Clinton Township as her brother-in-law, which would make him the brother of John. Examining the death record for John Fye in Wayne County gives us a birth date of 1829, which matches the birth date of John Fye, brother of Jacob David and son of Thomas Fye.

Louisa Fye, daughter of Thomas, married George W. Reeher in Mercer County, Pennsylvania. Information from descendants of Louisa Fye as well as census records fills out that family line.  George and Louisa lived in Wampum Borough, Lawrence County, Pennsylvania.  They appear there on the 1880 census with several of their children.

Alice Fye, another daughter of Thomas, married Christopher Deal and lived first in Lawrence County, Pennsylvania, then Butler County, Pennsylvania.  Information from descendents of Alice Fye Deal fills in that family line, and a death certificate for Alice gives us her parents as being a Thomas Fye and Mary.

Information from other descendants of Louisa Fye fills in the missing information for Sarah and Mary Fye.  Sarah married a William Seaburn, and Mary Fye married Henry Seaburn, William’s brother.  Sarah and William appear in the 1870, 1880, and 1910 Censuses as living in Lawrence County, Pennsylvania.

So, what we have at this point is the record of four brothers, John, Jacob David, Ruben, and George, and four sisters, Sarah, Mary, Louisa and Alice. The only person who has all eight listed as children is Thomas. In all cases, the children list their birth location as Pennsylvania, and in the case of Jacob David, it is listed as Mercer County. Also, we find a Mary Fye living with Jacob David in 1870 and 1880. Her age there matches the age of Mary, the wife of Thomas, which lends additional support to our conclusions. We also have a possible grave for Thomas Fye in Hickory Township, which is right next to a grave for a J. E. Fye. Whether this is our Thomas Fye or not remains to be determined but evidence strongly suggests that it is.

Before we continue, we need to note that the ages given on the censuses in many cases do not match. I don’t think that is a cause for concern, as quite honestly all census ages are suspect. For example, in 1850 Thomas Fye’s age is given as 50, whereas in 1860 it is 54. In some cases, the census takers rounded the ages, and in others they may have gotten the ages from other family members that did not know the actual age. My father-in-law was born in 1921 or 1923. The Porter Family Bible lists his birth year as 1923, but other records list 1921. Jacob David’s birth year is given as 1843 on his tombstone, 1839 in the 1860 census, 1840 in the 1850 census, 1842/43 in the 1880 census, and 1842/3 in the 1900 census. Elias Fye’s age is 10 years off in the 1860 census where he is listed as Eli Fye living in Mercer County. The bottom line is that we can’t always trust the Census birth dates, but there are plenty of other clues that enable us to link the families together. In this particular case, all of the evidence points to Jacob David, John, Ruben, and George as being all brothers, their parents being Thomas and Mary Fye of Mercer County.

Thomas married Mary. Born in 1809 in Northampton, Pennsylvania. Mary died in Lawrence, Pennsylvania, aft 1880; she was 71.

Research: We identify Mary by comparing the census records for Thomas with those of Jacob David.  In 1880, Jacob David has his mother, Mary Fye, living with him which presupposes that his father had died at that time. 

They had the following children:
 13 i. Reuben (1826-1916)
 14 ii. John (1829-1893)
 15 iii. George W. (1831-1906)
 16 iv. Mary (1833-)
 17 v. Sarah (1838-1916)
 18 vi. Jacob David (1843-1901)
 19 vii. Louisa (1846-1909)
 20 viii. Alice (~1847-)

6. Elizabeth Fey. Born abt 1810 in Northampton, Pennsylvania.

Research: The connection of Elisabeth Fey to our line is established by the following lines of evidence.  One, we have knowledge of a daughter of David and Maria Fey, born about 1810, who is unlisted by name in census records but is listed statistically in the 1820 census for David Fyack.  Two, the name of Elizabeth would fit our Fye nameset, perhaps she was named after David’s sister Maria Elisabeth.  Three, we have a record in The Whig, dated 13 November 1839, which gives us the marriage of an Elizabeth Fye to a George Walter.  The actual record reads, “Married - On Thursday evening last by J. Wetgandt, Esq., Mr. George Walter to Miss Elizabeth Fye, both of Forks Township.”  Four, Forks township is right next to Upper Nazareth Township which locates this Elizabeth Fey next to our Fey line.  They lived, quite literally, only a few miles apart.  Five, there is no other Fey family in all of Northampton County with the exception of ours that she could be part of.  And six, an examination of census records list a George Walter in the 1840 census, and an Elizabeth Walter herself as head of household in 1850.  Close by, in 1850, is a George Walter that is age 20, which is most likely the son of George Walter and probably a first wife.  Since Elizabeth is listed as head of household, we would have to assume that George Walter died between 1840 and 1850.  The age of Elizabeth Walter (Fye) is given as 40 on the 1850 census, which would give us a birthdate of around 1810.  And again, there is no other possible family in all of that area of Pennsylvania to which she could belong.

 23 iii. Edward (~1840-)

7. John Elias “Ayle” Fye. Born abt 1814 in Upper Nazareth, Northampton, Pennsylvania. John Elias “Ayle” died in Oconto Falls, Wisconsin, on 16 Jan 1895; he was 81. Buried on 19 Jan 1895 in Woodlawn Cemetery, Oconto Falls, Wisconsin.

The following notes are from Ora Kasten, g-granddaughter of Elias Fye.

Obituary

Mrs. Eliza Elizabeth Blair Fye, age 86 years, died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Bacon, just west of this village, on Tuesday, November 7, 1899. The deceased was a most estimable lady and was highly regarded by a large number of friends. She was born at Northampton, Penn., where she resided most of her life. With her husband she came to Oconto Falls seven years ago, and two years later, Mr. Fye answered the summons of the angel of death. Mrs. Fye was the mother of eleven children-six daughters and five sons, but of these two daughters and two sons have preceded her to the next world. The burial occurred on Thursday afternoon, funeral services being conducted at the Methodist Church by the Rev. W.J. Perry. Four generations were present to mourn the departure of their aged relative.

Sam Kiner Has Flock of Profitable Hens
Sam Kiner who resides in the First Ward, has one of the most profitable flocks of hens of which we have any record. They are all Rhode Island Reds, and during the month of January the flock, consisting of 49 hens, laid 746 eggs. These eggs Mr. Kiner sold at 38¢ a dozen, totaling him $23.56. The cost of feeding was just $4.85, leaving him a net profit for the month of $18.71. The flock is kept in a large, warm, well lighted hen house.

Information taken from a Fye Family genealogy:

"Elias (Ayle) and Elizabeth (Liza) (Sear) (Lair) Fye

As of 1968, they are the first known generation of the Fye Family that came to the United States. According to tradition, by the William Fye Family,
Ayle came from Holland.

An excerpt from a letter written by Mrs. Wall , a granddaughter, who was 87 years of age in 1967. "My sister says my grandma Fye was born over est of the Mountains.  She used to talk about the Allegheny Mountains, and my Granddad Fye came from Alsace Lorraine. Think he was from Swiss parents, as he could yodel, and he was short, dark hair and blue eyes, and all his family were real musical, and it rubbed off onto my family."

They came from Pennsylvania, then moved to Ohio (probably Cleveland), and went to Oconto Falls, Wisconsin about 1890 - 1891.

Hannah Fye Keen , a granddaughter, said Liza smoked a clay pipe, that she was bedfast -- her legs were swollen -- and they they painted them with iodine.

Hannah also said that her grandmother had strange sayings. For instance, when her home made bread happened to rise up over the pan, she would say "My risen walked over".

Hannah's parents, Dave Fye's Family, lived in the same house as did Ayle and Liza Fye when they lived in Cleveland, Ohio, where they watched a boat being built and launched in Lake Erie.

Liza died about November 7, 1899, and Ayle died a few years later (according to Joseph Spice). (John Elias Fye died on 16 January 1895.) They are buried at Oconto Falls, Wisconsin in Woodlawn Cemetery. Ayle was buried where they later wished to put a walk. They dug up the body to move it, and opened the coffin.  He (Joe Spice) said the face had caved in, but he still had his hair, and the clothing was moldy. Joseph Jr. could not eat for three days after. (Joseph was about 9 or 10 years old at the time.)

Research: John Elias Fye first appears in the United States Census Records for 1850 in the Northampton County, Upper Nazareth Township enumeration. There he is living with a Polly Fye, who we have identified as Mary Fye, wife of David. His wife, Eliza, is listed there as well along with several children. An examination of tax records for Upper Nazareth Township shows that he first appeared there in the records in 1836. That would make his birth date to be sometime in 1814 or 1815, which matches further records we have of him.

Early on in our investigation we were faced with some confusion as to the origin of Elias Fye.  One of the branches of the family, the William Henry Fye line, seemed to believe he was a first-generation immigrant to the United States from the Alsace-Lorraine area of Europe. In fact, this is so noted on the 1900 Census for Wayne County, Ohio, where William indicates his parents were both born in Germany.  Samuel Kiner, the husband of Adeline Fye, daughter of Elias, indicates that Adeline’s parents were both born in Germany on Adeline’s death certificate.

However, every other source of information indicates otherwise.  For example, on all of Elias’ census records he indicates that both he and his wife were born in Pennsylvania.  On the 1880 census, he further indicates that both of his parents were born in Pennsylvania as well, and every other census record from his children, with the exception of the one mentioned above, indicate Elias and Eliza were born in Pennsylvania.  In short, we have no substantiated evidence telling us anything other than the fact that Elias and Eliza were born in Pennsylvania.

Finally, when we take into consideration the evidence linking Elias to Polly “Maria” Fye, we are left with the only plausible explanation regarding the origin of Elias, and that is he was born in the United States, in Pennsylvania, in Northampton County.  Now, it is very possible that the Fye line came from Germany, and in fact the evidence uncovered regarding Elias’ grandfather Jacob Feyock would bear this out.  The Moravian’s in Northampton County were Pennsylvania Dutch, and the will of Jacob Feyock was written in old German and English.  Perhaps what the line of William Henry Fye remembered was the original origin of the Fye line, and not that of just Elias.

The next event we know in the life of Elias Fye is that sometime in the 1850s, Elias moved with his family from Northampton County to Mercer County, Pennsylvania. There we find him in Delaware Township living with a James Hopper. An examination of Plat Maps located the residence of a James Hopper about one mile west of the Pymatuning/Delaware Township line. Today, the road that goes by this residence is known as Hopper Road. On the same census we find Thomas Fye, his brother, living in Pymatuning Township. Examining Plat Maps in this case does not help as much, since we cannot locate a Thomas Fye on the map as he apparently did not own his own residence, but we can locate some of his neighbors on the Plat Map from the census record for 1860. When we do this, we find him living about one to two miles west of the Pymatuning/Delaware township line, or about 2 to 3 miles from Elias. No doubt, Elias chose Mercer County because Thomas lived there.  In fact, there were only three known Fye families in Mercer County at that time, Thomas, Elias, and a George Fye.  George Fye was married to a Sarah, and apparently had no children.  He does not appear to be connected to our line in any way at this time, as we can find no record of a George Fye, born in 1829, in our line.

Between 1860 and 1870, Elias then moved to Trumbull County, Hubbard Township, Ohio. This is only a few miles from where he lived in 1860, in fact, it is just across the state line. Also listed separately on the 1870 census is David Fye, son of Elias. He is living in Hubbard Township next to Elias, and the death certificate for Charles Fye, son of David, says he was born in Sharon Pennsylvania. Sharon is just across the border from Hubbard Township. Between 1870 and 1880, Elias next moved to Wayne County, Ohio, where he lived only a few miles from the farm of John Fye, son of Thomas. In 1893, John Fye died and shortly after that, or just before that, Elias moved with most of his children to Oconto County, Wisconsin. There he died in 1895. Staying behind was his two sons David and William. Both were in Wayne County in 1900 as that is where we find them in the census. Then, sometime after 1900 William moved to Oconto County, Wisconsin, and David became the only child of Elias and Eliza living in Ohio.

John Elias “Ayle” married Eliza Lear, daughter of John Lear/Lehr (~1792-) & Lydia Spangler (~1796-). Born abt 1816 in Upper Nazareth, Northampton, Pennsylvania. Eliza died in Oconto Falls, Wisconsin, on 7 Nov 1899; she was 83. Buried on 9 Nov 1899 in Woodlawn Cemetery, Oconto Falls, Wisconsin.

Mrs. Eliza Elizabeth Blair Fye, age 86 years, died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Bacon, just west of this village on Tuesday, November 7, 1899. The deceased was a most estimable lady and was highly regarded by a large number of friends.  She was born at Northampton, Penn., where she resided most of her life.  With her husband she came to Oconto Falls seven years ago, and two years later, Mr. Fye answered the summons of the angel of death.  Mrs. Fye was the mother of eleven children-six daughters and five sons, but of these two daughters and two sons have preceded her to the next world.  The burial occurred on Thursday afternoon, funeral services being conducted at the Methodist Church by the Rev. W. M. Perry.  Four generations were present to mourn the departure of their aged relative. 

Research: The death record for Eliza Fye is as follows:

Full Name: Eliza Elizabeth Fye
Maiden Name: Eliza Elizabeth Laer
Color: White
Sex: Female
Race: Caucasian
Occupation: None
Age: 88 yrs, exact age unknown
Name of father: John Laer
Birthplace of father: Northampton Co. Penn.
Name of mother: Lydia Spangler
Birthplace of mother: Northampton Co. Penn.
Birthplace of deceased: Northampton Co. Penn.
Name of husband of deceased: Elias Fye deceased
Date of birth: unknown
Condition: widowed
Date of death: Nov 7, 1899
Residence at death: Oconto Falls
Cause of death: paralysis
Place of death: Oconto Falls
Duration of disease: 5 years

Research: According to the International Genealogical Index and her death record, Eliza’s parents were John Lear/Lair and Lydia Spangler. There is significant evidence that points to John Lear as being John Lehr, the last name being phonetically spelled by the census takers as the Lehrs and Fyes were, for the most part, illiterate. There is some record of the lineage of some of the Lehr's in Northampton/Lehigh County, tracing their lineage back to a Peter Lehr who came from Germany in the late 1700's. Most likely, that is where our John Lehr traces his lineage, as there is a Peter and John Lehr in the 1800, 1810, and 1820 censuses. We need to do more work to track this line down and prove the parental lineage of John Lehr. No work at this time has been done on the Spangler line although there is a record of a George Spangler in Northampton County in 1790, and a Jacob Lear there as well.

They had the following children:
 24 i. Mary Ann (1839-1921)
 25 ii. John Elias (1843-1867)
 26 iii. David (1844-1915)
 27 iv. William Henry (1846-1941)
 28 v. Arabella (1850-<1855)
 29 vi. Lydia May (1857-1921)
 30 vii. Adaline (1848-1934)
 31 viii. Arabella (1856-1928)
 32 ix. George W. (1862-1926)

8. George Fye. Born abt 1816.

Research: The only reference to George Fye we have at this time, apart from the Tax Records, is the 1850 census, in which he appears in Upper Nazareth as a tailor living in a public house. His age is given as 27, which would given him a birth date of 1822 or so. This does not match the birth year of 1817 which would be implied in the 1828 tax record for David and Mary Fye, so whether this is the same George, or a different one, remains to be researched.  However, it is important to note that George was living in a public house at this time, and that the census enumerator listed the ages of four of the 7 occupants at 27.  Most likely then, this is our George and the census taker just guessed at his age as he was not there at the time of the visit.

A search was made of all 1880 Census records for a George Fye to no avail.  No one matching the birth date of 1817 plus or minus 10 years was found. Whether he will be found in the 1860 or 1870 censuses remain to be seen, but a thorough search of Northampton County for those years failed to find reference to this George Fye.

Research: From Kim at Gskvh5@aol.com dated 6 March 2002:

Hi Alan,

Is her maiden name Fye and married name Schoeneberger ? †In one record it gives her maiden name as Figel and in another as Fye. †I have that she was born 9/26/1820 place is unknown she died 4/1/1889. †I have no clue where her and her husband are buried, I assume it would be in Bath.

This line is a round about way to my line. †My grandmothers' mother was married to Sylvester Palmer Schoeneberger, son of Harrison and Rufina (Bender) Schoeneberger, he (Sylvester) was in some kind of accident and placed in a home (which is now the Weaversville Boys Home) he never gave Lucinda nee Seyfried a divorce they had 5 children together. †Lucinda met another man who raised Sylvester and her children, his name was Herbert Ebert. †Herbert and Lucinda never married, of course and they had 9 children together. †The Schoeneberger children are my grandmother Eberts' half brothers and sisters.

I am tracing this line to make everything fit properly and to know where did they come from.

If you are interested in what I have on her children, I will share what I have with you.

Thanks,
Kim

Research: Catherine Fye Schoneberger appears in several significant records. Two of these, land records, show that Mary Fye left her property in Upper Nazareth Township to her daughter, Catherine Schoneberger, wife of Isaac Schoneberger. We also have a census for 1870, which lists Mary Fye, age 79, as living with Isaac and Catherine Schoneberger in East Allen Township. Children listed on that census are Gustus? and Rebecca. Mary's relationship is given as Mother-in-law, so we have another piece of evidence that proves she is indeed the mother of Catherine. Additionally, Catherine's age as listed on the census positively identifies her as the Chaterina Fye listed in the 1828 and 1829 tax records.

Examining the 1850, 1860, and 1870 Census records for Northampton County also help us in finally and positively identifying the Maria Fye in land records with the Polly Fye in the Census and Tax Records.  In 1850, Catherine Fye is listed with her husband, I. Shellenburger, in East Allen Township, Northampton County, visit 72.  Four children are listed: Sarah, age 9, Polly, age 7, Harrison age 5, and George W., age 3.  In 1870 we have the second daughter, Polly, enumerated in the Moore Township Census, visit 576, as living in the home of a Reuben Danner as servant.  Her age there is given as 16.  What is so important about this is that according to descendants of Isaac and Catherine Schoneberger, their second daughter who was born in 1844 was named Maria and later married a Joseph Bray.  This means we have a daughter of Catherine whose formal name was Maria, but whose known name was Polly.  This is just too great a coincidence to ignore.  This pretty much proves our prior conclusion about Catherine’s mother, Maria Schwartz Fye, namely that she was often called and known as Polly although her formal name was Maria.

One more connection can be made as well.  In 1850, the listed occupation for Isaac is that of a Miller.  This is the same as the listed occupation for Elias Fye who was living with Polly at that time.

Research: Joseph Fye first appears in the tax records for Upper Nazareth Township in 1843 as the son of Polly/Maria Fye. This would place his birth date around 1821, which is substantiated by the 1850, 1860, and 1870 census records for Northampton County. In 1850, we find Joseph living in Moore Township, two entries from a John Lehr and Lydia. John and Lydia were the parents of Eliza Lear, wife of Elias Fye. Joseph is listed there as having a wife named Lydia, and children Amanda, August, and Samuel H. In 1860, Joseph is listed in Moore Township with wife Lydia and children Amandus, Augustus, Samuel, Ellnora, and Mary Ann. In 1870 the list of children is Amandus, Ellnora, and Hannah. After 1880, Joseph Fye disappears from the census records for Northampton County.

According to information supplied to genealogical bulletin boards by the descendants of Joseph Fye, he and Lydia moved to Lehigh County towards the end of their life and died there.  They are buried in the UCC Cemetery in Egypt, Pennsylvania.  We also find from these descendants that the maiden name of Lydia was Stahler.  On both the 1860 and 1870 censuses we find an Abraham and Catherine Stahler living next door to Joseph, which would tend to make us believe that they are Lydia’s parents.

Joseph married Lydia Stahler. Born on 24 Jun 1826 in Northampton, Pennsylvania. Lydia died in Lehigh, Pennsylvania, on 24 Oct 1900; she was 74. Buried on 25 Oct 1900 in UCC Cemetery, Egypt, Lehigh, Pennsylvania.

They had the following children:
 42 i. Amanda

11. William Fey. Born abt 1825 in Upper Nazareth, Northampton, Pennsylvania.

Research: The only record we have of William Fye at this time is an 1850 Census record for East Allen Township, Northampton County.  The actual entry is for a William Fye, age 24, living in a public house.  His listed occupation is tailor.

Again, the question we need to answer is if he is actually connected to our family.  In response, we note that his name certainly fits with the other family names we have, and that he is listed only a few entries from Catherine Schoneberger in this census.  Also, if he is not connected to our family, then where did he come from?  There is no other known Fye family in the entire Northampton County area with the exception of David and Mary Fye.

Unfortunately, William seems to disappear from the census records, as we cannot find him in Pennsylvania after 1850.  So the ultimate answer as to whether he is connected to our line or not awaits further proof.

Research: Charles Fye appears in two census records, 1850 and 1860. In 1850, he appears in Carbon County, which is situated about ten to twenty miles north of Upper Nazareth Township, as a laborer. His age is given as 25, which would match his appearance in 1848 in the Upper Nazareth Tax Records, and would also possibly identify him as the un-named son, age seven, which appears in the 1831 tax record. In 1860 we find him in Hanover Township, Northampton County, at a given age of 35. There he is listed with a wife, Elizabeth, age 29, and children William H. age 9, Thomas age 7, and George W. age 5.

Some question may arise as to whether this is our Charles Fye; the one listed in the tax records as the son of David and Maria Fye.  In response, we note that his age would match exactly the age of Charles as given in the tax records, there is no other Charles in Northampton County, or for that matter the rest of Pennsylvania that would fit the data we have, and finally, the names of his three children are all mirrored in the rest of the Fye family. William H. is most likely William Henry, which would match the name of one of Elias’ children, and George W. matches the name of one of Thomas Fye’s sons who is also named George W.  We also have a son of David Fye, Charles, who may have been named after one of David Fye’s uncles, this Charles.

One final connection can possibly be made when we look at the 1870 Census for East Allen Township.  On page 28, visit 222, we have a George Fye listed as living in a home as a hired farm laborer.  His age is given as 15, which would match exactly the age of George, the son of Charles, mentioned above.  Since there is no other Fye family in Northampton County with a son named George, this is very likely the son of Charles.  What makes the connection even stronger is that Joseph Fye appears three entries later on the same page in this census.  This establishes, almost certainly, a connection between George and Joseph.  Most likely, George’s parents died sometime before 1870 and he went to live with his uncle Joseph.  Since it is common for children to be working at an early age in the mid 1800’s, he probably went to live and work on a farm near his uncle where we find him in
the 1870 enumeration.

Further research shows that George apparently stayed in Northampton.  In 1890, the census lists him as George Frye age 35, with his wife Emma, age 34, Calvin, age 12, Herbert, age 8, and Florence, age 6.

Charles married Elizabeth.

They had the following children:
 48 i. William H. (~1851-)
 49 ii. Thomas (~1853-)
 50 iii. George W. (~1855-)

On 19 Aug 1873 when Reuben was 47, he second married Sarah Whitaker, in Lawrence, Pennsylvania.

Abt 1879 when Reuben was 52, he third married Anna Bartrim, in Lawrence, Pennsylvania. Born in Oct 1856.

They had the following children:

John married Mary Lear, daughter of John Lear/Lehr (~1792-) & Lydia Spangler (~1796-). Born on 25 Mar 1830 in Northampton, Pennsylvania. Mary died in Clinton, Wayne, Ohio, on 9 Oct 1893; she was 63.2 Buried on 10 Oct 1893 in Clinton, Wayne, Ohio.

Research: Identifying Mary as a Lear is the result of an extensive amount of research.  Her will specifically lists David and William Fye, along with a Samuel and Susannah Seigfried as her only surviving relatives in the State of Ohio.  All four are listed as her nephews and niece.  This can mean only one of two things.  First, John Fye and Elias are brothers, and she is Isaac Seigfried’s sister, or the sister of Isaac Seigfried’s wife.  Since Elias and John CANNOT be brothers, and we have pretty much conclusively shown that John is the son of Thomas Fye of Mercer County who is about the same age as Elias, that eliminates this possibility.  The second option is that she is a Lear, in which case she would be Eliza’s sister.  That would almost certainly mean that Samuel and Susannah’s mother would have to be a Lear as well, and that is exactly what we find when examining the death certificate for Samuel Seigfried.  On that, his mother is named as Lovina Lear.  Thus, Lovina, Elize, and Mary are sisters.  David and William are nephews by her sister Eliza, and Samuel and Susannah are nephew and niece by her other sister Lovina.

They had one child:
 58 i. Emaline

George W. married Nancy Jane Glass, daughter of Hannah. Born in 1841 in Sharpsville, Pennsylvania. Nancy Jane died in Sharpsville, Pennsylvania, in 1913; she was 72. Buried in 1913 in Riverside Cemetery, Mercer, Pennsylvania.

Mrs. Nancy Fye, widow of G. W. Fye, 72 years old, a well known and highly respected resident of Sharpsville died at her home on First Street, that place, Tuesday morning at 10 o’clock following a stoke of paralysis.  News of her demise came as a distinct shock to her many friends and acquaintances. She was born and raised in Sharpsville and lived there all her life.  She is survived by the following children: Harry, Ruby, Mary, Bella and Mrs. Edward Ague. The funeral services will be held on Thursday afternoon at 2 o’clock from her late residence, Rev. Mr. Weaver officating.  Interment will follow in Riverside Cemetery.

17. Sarah Fye. Born in 1838 in Mercer, Pennsylvania. Sarah died in 1916; she was 78.

I don’t know if the following Sarah is this Sarah, but she would be the only one that would fit the date.  Further research seems to suggest this may be the divorced wife of Reuben Fye?

Jacob David Fye was named the sole inheritor of the estate of Mary Fye.  In her will, she lists a J. D. Fye as her sole heir, and later documentation refers to J. David Fye and Jacob Fye who was the administrator of the will.  We also find in the will that David Fye lived in Lawrence County, Pennsylvania, at the time the will was administered, since a document dated three months before the death of Mary is specifically mentioned as being filed in Clinton, Lawrence County, Pennsylvania.

25. John Elias Fye. Born in 1843 in Northampton, Pennsylvania. John Elias died in Hubbard, Trumbull, Ohio, on 2 Mar 1867; he was 24. Buried on 4 Mar 1867 in Glenwood Cemetery, Mercer, Pennsylvania.

The New Castle Law Journal - 9 March 1867

SUICIDE - The Sharon Herald, of the 2d inst, states that a young man named John Fye, about twenty-two years of age employed in chopping, near the Depot in Hubbard, was discovered, at about 3 o'clock pm on Saturday last, hanging to a tree by his suspenders, near the place where he had been at work.  A coroner's inquest returned a verdict of death by hanging.  We have not learned the supposed cause of the suicide.

Research: We have no information on John Fye after the census of 1860.  That would tend to make us believe that he either died between 1860 and 1870, or he moved away from his parents and lived elsewhere.  We have no information of the latter, so most likely he died.  There is a tombstone in the Glenwood Cemetery located near Sharon Pennylvania for a J. E. Fye right next to one for Thomas Fye.  As outlined elsewhere, we believe Thomas was the brother of Elias Fye, and was buried in Glenwood Cemetery as he too disappears from the census after 1860.  Until we can either prove or disprove the whereabouts of John Fye, our assumption and belief is that he is buried in Glenwood Cemetery, which is further proven by a possible obituary for a John Fye of the exact age to be this John Elias Fye.

One more note on this, and that is the obituary for Mary Lear, John’s mother, states she had eleven children of whom two sons and two daughters died prior to her.  We know of a daughter, Arabella, that died between 1850 and 1855, which leaves two sons and one daughter.  Since David, William and George were alive in 1899, that would mean one of the sons who died was John.

Here is something very interesting.  When I went to Mercer County, I copies of lots of obituaries.  Here is one for 3 March 1867 for a John Fye:

SUICIDE - The Sharon Herald, of the 2d inst, states that a young man named John Fye, about twenty-two years of age employed in chopping, near the Depot in Hubbard, was discovered, at about 3 o'clock pm on Saturday last, hanging to a tree by his suspenders, near the place where he had been at work.  A coroner's inquest returned a verdict of death by hanging.  We have not learned the supposed cause of the suicide.

I am betting real money this is the son of Elias and Eliza.  Why?

1.  We know that Elias Fye was living in Hubbard in 1870 according to census records.

2. Elias is the ONLY Fye in that area according to the census.

3. John Fye disappears from the census after 1860.  In 1860 he is listed with his father and mother in Delaware Township, Mercer County, about 7 or 8 miles from Hubbard.

4. John Fye, son of Elias, would have been about 22-23 at the time.

5. We know John died after 1865, as we have a discharge record for him from the Army.  So he must have "died" or "disappeared" after 1865 and before 1870.

6. The name John matches our missing relative.

7. The existence of a tombstone in Glenwood Cemetery next to Thomas is most likely his final resting place.

8. Both John AND Thomas disappear from records about the same time, that is, between 1865 and 1870.

So, what are the chances there is another John Fye, age 22, living in Hubbard, who died in the late 1860's, that would fit???

Hi!!!

We have had a little free time here as the season winds down a little;and had time to find some of the stories (actually most of the stories) that I have
on David Fye.  Also, when we first got a computer when we had a bookstore in Phoenix, Bill entered some of the genealogy that Stella had sent.  I have never looked at it to confirm the accuracy, but think he did well.  However, I do not think that your genealogy is accurate in our information--in fact, I know it wasn't entered accurately.

I'll give you a little background on Stella and how I received all this--

When my children were very young, I began organizing some of my Grandfather's stories.  As I did that, I somehow came in contact with Stella (can't remember how).  Anyway, we corresponded for many years not only as the children were growing, but as I continued finishing my college education. However, once I started teaching (biology, ecology and earth science), I quit writing so often--children growing and trying to teach...too hard to keep up the genealogy work at that time.  I must say that it has always been one of my regrets (and I don't have a lot) that I did not keep writing to Stella except for Christmas cards.

She was a wonderful person.  She was one of these people that has roots in different places--for her it was Wisconsin and Ohio; and I think for her that was a main reason in wanting to know the family of both places.  She became very involved in the all the families.  I have no idea how many people she corresponded with; but it was considerable.  I am sure that everyone liked her as much as I did.

Now, as I do this I am going to try to write it as I want to put it in my word perfect.  It is really time to organize all of this, again.  Bits and pieces of paper are everywhere.  My Mother has even written several pages for me about her life as a child in Wisconsin.

Enjoy--

David, the third of eight children, born in Northhampton County, Pennsylvania, during December of 1845 was among the Fye family when they moved westward.  He had a new wife, (Mary Hillkirk), who was a widow with two children, William Carlin and Ellen Carlin. All the children of Ayle and Liza Fye were young adults at the time of the move, and Ayle and Liza were approaching sixty.  A very difficult time for them;  but nevertheless they made this move after the Civil War. What was occurring after the Civil War that caused Ayle Fye's family to move along with other Fye relatives we do not know.

David did not go the entire way to Ohio during this move;  but chose to settle in Sharon, Pennsylvania, for reasons which we do not know.  The others, of course, made it to Cleveland where they settled for a short time.

David Fye was an excellent basket weaver.  He was even able to create beautiful cradles--none of the cradles have survived that I know.  Truly an expert at his craft, he was able to sell his baskets and cradles in neighboring communities when his family moved to Ohio, such as Wellington and Wooster.  All his articles were made of split green oak and hickory.  He, of course, did this along with farm in his own farm.  Very talented man.

Of course, the Fye family was known for their huge musical family gatherings.  What laughter and fun there must have been with that family.  Ayle was not only a wonderful fiddler; but, apparently, also had the patience to teach all his sons to play as well.  Then they went on to teach their sons--great tradition for three generations.

David and his sons, David and John,  played the violin and the accordian, William Fye played the violin, and Chris Fuller's sons, Orin and Sam played the violin and the banjo.  They all played for themselves, for family, and for others who may also have been extended family (the Fullers did play for dances, though).    George Fye was also interested, of course, in music; but somehow he had some connection with the phonograph--not sure.  George and his wife, Rose, had spent a year in Ohio living with David and his family in 1913.

As far as I know, though, none of them could yodel like Ayle--he may not have been the only one but he was certainly the one everyone talked about.

David and his brother, William, had often played the violin together.  One of the saddest family stories occurred when William took a trip from Wisconsin to Ohio, packing his violin and planning on spending time playing the fiddles again with his brother even though they were old men by then. He arrived in Ohio to find out that his brother, David, had been buried the day before he got there in February of 1915.

Please e-mail me your address, and I'll send that genealogy--also, could you please send copies of the documents that you have found of the Moravian church, Pennsylvania, and the Revolution--also where they lived in Ohio--thanks 

As I go through more of this, I'll send other stories on to you.

Glad you are so interested-Judy

David married Mary Elizabeth Hillkirk4, daughter of Francis “Frank” Hillkirk (~1817-) & Nancy Jane Cozadd (~1820-). Born in Dec 1843 in Lackawonnock, Mercer, Pennsylvania. Mary Elizabeth died in West Salem, Congress, Wayne, Ohio, in 1900; she was 56. Buried in 1900 in Hazzard Cemetery, West Salem, Ohio.

Research: Identifying the first husband of Mary Elizabeth Hillkirk was no easy task.  In 1870, we have a census which lists Mary, David Fye, and two children, Eliza, age 4, and William, age 3, Johnson.  In 1880, we find Eliza and William living with David and Mary, but no last name given.  In 1900, we find William living with David and Mary, but now he is listed with a last name of Carlin.  We also have several photographs with Carlin as William’s last name, and we have recently come across a photograph of Ellen with the last name of Carlin as well.

Adding to the confusion about the last name of Mary’s first husband, is the marriage record for Eliza Ellen to James Kimber dated 19 July 1884 on which she lists her name as Eliza Ellen Johnson.  The birth record for her two daughters, Nellie V. on 30 June 1885 and Aldy L. on 4 August 1887 also lists her name as Eliza Johnson.  However, Ellen’s third marriage to Charles Troutman, dated 24 May 1910 lists her parents as Samuel Carlin and Elizabeth Hillkirk.

Our best guess then, is that sometime between 1885 and 1900, Ellen and William were either told who their real father was, or Mary Elizabeth was married to a Samuel Carlin, then an unknown Johnson, and then David Fye.  The latter is somewhat unlikely, so we are left with a minor mystery.  Did Mary Elizabeth know the true parent of her children and hide that from them, did she not know their real father, or is there some other reason we have the name change.  We won’t know the answer to this until we have some further information. 

They had the following children:
 121 i. David Francis (1869-1943)
 122 ii. Charles (1870-1947)
 123 iii. John (1873-1930)
 124 iv. Nancy Jane (1875-1939)
 125 v. Arabella (1877-1953)
 126 vi. Mary Elizabeth (1878-<1880)
 127 vii. Adaline (1880-<1900)
 128 viii. Hannah Maybelle (1881-1973)
 129 ix. Mina Lovina (1884-1940)
 130 x. Clara Alta (1887-1950)

27. William Henry Fye. Born on 27 Apr 1846 in Bath, Northampton, Pennsylvania. William Henry died in Oconto Falls, Wisconsin, on 30 Jul 1941; he was 95. Buried on 2 Aug 1941 in Woodlawn Cemetery, Oconto, Wisconsin. Occupation: Violinist and Farmer.

Funeral services for William Fye, who passed away Wednesday at the home of his daughter, Mrs. George Garnier will be held Friday afternoon at the O’Neill funeral home, with burial in Woodlawn Cemetery. Elder O.R. Osman of Waupaca will officiate.

Mr. Fye was born in 1846 at Bath, Pennsylvania, and at the time of his passing had attained 95 years 3 months and 3 days. His marriage to Miss Mary Wardell took place in 1879 at Hubbard Ohio. To this union were born nine children, six of whom survive. Mrs. Fye passed away about 37 years ago.

Survivors are three daughters, Mrs. Garnier, city, with whom he made his home; Mrs. Gilbert Grismer of West Plains, Missouri; and Mrs. Victor Johnson of Detroit, three sons Edward of Abrams, Glen, Oconto Falls and James of Oconto. He is further mourned by 27 grandchildren, 23 great grandchildren and 1 great great grandchild.

In his younger days, Mr. Fye was well known in Pennsylvania, Ohio and Wisconsin as a violinist of ability. He will be remembered by many as an entertainer as he played at many social gatherings.

Those from away at the rites were Mr. and Mrs. Earl Piper and family of Ashland, Ohio, Mr. and Mrs. Roy Rush of Loraine, Ohio and Mr. and Mrs. Victor Johnson of Detroit.

Research: William Henry Fye was known as a violinist of great ability in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Wisconsin according to Geraldine Thiede, his g-granddaughter.

In 1879 when William Henry was 32, he married Mary Ann Wardell2, daughter of Henry Allen Wardell & Elizabeth Lewis, in Hubbard, Ohio. Born in 1859 in Nottingham, England. Mary Ann died in Morgan, Oconto, Wisconsin, on 2 Aug 1904; she was 45. Buried on 4 Aug 1904 in Oconto Falls, Wisconsin.

They had the following children:
 131 i. George Lawrence (1879-1903)
 132 ii. Catherine (1881-)
 133 iii. William Henry (1881-)

28. Arabella Fye. Born in Jan 1850. Arabella died bef 1855; she was 4.

We know of two Arabellas.  The 1850 Census lists an Arabella, age several months, and an 1860 census lists Arabella, age five.  Subsequent censuses all show Arabella’s age as being born in 1855.  Our conclusion then, is that this Arabella died in childhood and Elias named another daughter Arabella as well.

29. Lydia May Fye. Born on 28 Jan 1857 in Mauch Chunk, Northampton, Pennsylvania. Lydia May died in Tacoma, Washington, on 16 Mar 1921; she was 64.

There appears to be significant musical ability in the Fye line, particularly in the case of Lydia.  Her son Harry was a musician in the orchestra in Tacoma, and a grand-daughter, Lula, is listed as a pianist in the 1930 census.

Subject: Updenkelder/Fye/Oudean

Dear Alan, You may remeber that we contact before. After a long while I have the time again to do some research. I came across rootsweb and saw what you have about the ancestors. I would like to make some remarks. First about Lydia May Fye.She was born on 3 December 1857. I have a copy of the marriagecertificate of Lydia and John, clearly stating that she was 18 years old when she married. Further I have a picture of the headstone of Lydia and John, indicating that she was norn in 1857 and died in 1921. John was born in 1852 and died in 1941. I have his obituary. About the Updenkelder's I can tell you the following. In 1847 Jan op den Kelder, his wife Marie Haker and their four children, Jan (male)of 1831, Antje (female) of 1837, Jantje (female) of 1839 and Roelof (male) of 1844 sailed to the USA together with Pieter Oudejans. He was not married and stayed single. In in the same year 1847 Marie Haker died. Jan remarried with a certain Lena (no surname). Jan died in 1885 and Lena in 1888. His son Willem died in 1850, probably unmarried. Now the puzzle starts! I have booklet, written by Herman op den Kelder, containing the genealogy of the Op den Kelder's, in which I find a marriage of  Roelof op den Kelder, born 7 March 1841 in Nibbixwoud, died in 1919 in Blokker, married to Trijntje Hoogland on 9 August 1874 in Nibbixwoud. A translation of Trijntje Hoogland in English could be Katie Highlander. Trijntje and Katie are shorts of Catherine. In the same booklet I find Johannes M. op den Kelder. born 12 April 1803 in Nibbixwoud. married on 4 October 1835 to Marie Haker, widow of Klaas Bijl. They had at least two children, Antje born on 9 September 1837 in Nibbixwoud and Roelof, born 24 March 1844 in Nibbixwoud. I mentioned them before. What you have on rootsweb and I have, I combined and I ended with the following family: Rudolf op den Kelder married to Trijntje Hoogland (Katie Highlander). They had the following children: Ervin born around 1876 Annie, born around 1878, married to John Rambertus Oudeans William, born around 1879 Gloss, born around 1880, married to Arabella Oudeans I'm convinced that these children were born in the USA and not in the Netherlands. Last year I did some research in our Dutch archives and found nothing about the birth of Gloss. And Gloss is not a normal Dutch name. Annie and John married in 1896. Annie died in 1899. They had two children, Eva Lydia, born 1897 and John Leo, born 1899. John remarried Minnie Alice Jolly. They had five children, Zelma May, born 1902, June L., born 1905, Evelyn (?) born around 1908, Nadine E., born 1910 and Charles Rodney, born 1914. I have several copies of the genealogy of the Op den Kelder's. Of course it is Dutch. If you're interested I can send you a copy. Did you know that Op den Kelder's are orginally from Germany? Than they wrote their name as Auf dem Keller. I mailed a lot with Bob Updenkelder from AZ, but I knew more of his than he did! He is a descendent of Ervin. Let me know what you think off all this. Can you add something? Greetings, Henk 

On 25 Oct 1875 when Lydia May was 18, she married John Oudean5, in Cuyahoga County, Ohio. Born on 28 Jan 1852 in Osterblocke, North Holland. John died in 1941; he was 88.

John Oudean Sr.

John Oudean Sr., 89, died Tuesday at a local hospital.  He was a native of Holland and had lived in the United States 70 years and in Tacoma 23 years.

I have a very old picture of Christopher Fuller and his wife Arabella. My grandmother told me these people were her gramma and grandpa. there are also two little girls in the picture,her mother Matilda Fuller Milheiser Coopman.  She lived to be very old and outlived each of these men. I believe she had one more husband. I save every little scrap of paper concerning geneology so my records are really crazy. I bought the computer to try to organize everything

Also in this same picture is Elizabeth, Matilda's sister. Matilda is my greatgrandmother and Elizabeth is my great aunt.

Christopher Fuller was born 19 Dec 1855 in Armstrong' Penn.He married Arabella Fye, born Jan 1856 in Northhampton,Penn. They were married 31 Mar. 1874 in Cuyahoga, Ohio. Christophers father was Henry Fuller and his mother was Mary Ann Rose. Arabella's father was Elias Fye and her mother was Elizabeth Laer or Lair.

I have a tin type portrait of Kris or Christopher Fuller and the group picture of Kris and Arabella and the two youngest children, Matilda and Elizabeth.

There were three other children. In order of birth with dates and birthplaces:

1. Samual b.Jan 1885 in Ohio He was a mill employee in 1900 census. It would take me some time to reverify this but I'm pretty sure the mill was in Oconto County.

2. Harry b.July1890 in Wis

3. Arnold b. July 1892 in Wis

4. Matilda b. Aug 1894 in Wis

5. Elizabeth b. Aug 1897 in Wis

Some of this information came from my grandmother and a lot of it came from the LDS Family Research Library. I have copies of some of the census sheets that provided my information. A small amount came from research from LDS Temple Records. The missionaries who volunteer at the library are about the kindest most helpful people around. I'm not Mormon but without the help of these wonderful people I would have very little information.

I also have a census copy of the Rose family from Cuyahoga?I would have to look it up to tell you for sure. I found them accidently when I was looking for Christopher. At the time of this particular census he was living either with them or in the next dwelling.

I also have information on the Milheiser branch. Matilda Fuller married Louis Milheiser. My grandmother is Fredericka Milheiser their daughter.

Also the Slaughter branch, not very much here.Just a note from my grandmother that reads,"Elizabeth Slaughter was my mothers aunt and Christ (we spelled it Kris) Fuller my grandfather was her brother. They are the only two I know on Christ Fuller my grandfathers side" This is a direct quote from a letter teling me who all the people were in the pictures I received from my mother.I have pictures of Elizabeth and Orin Slaughter. Most of the pictures came from Elizabeth Slaughters album. She was very close to my grandmother and when she died she left the album to her.  My grandmother was getting older and the album had been promised to me. I always loved the pictures from when I was a little girl. My Grandma gave it to my mom and my mom gave it to me. I'm not sure how to go about sharing the pictures with you if this is indeed your branch but I would love to.

Research: Dear Kathy,

I appologize. The list of children I gave you were from a census sheet. I sent the census sheet to my grandmother for verification and clarification. Her handwriting is terrible but her information is great. She has notes all over the letter she sent me and it's really confusing. On one side down in the corner she wrote,"Christ Fuller and Arabella Fyes kids were:

Bill Fuller or William

Sammuel

Harry

Young Christ

Jack

Matilda (my mother)

Elizabeth married to August Pagel

Adeline married to Onnie (hard to read, Dawn) Colleir

END OF GRAMMA'S NOTE

The younger children are found in Oconto County. William was Christophers first born child and we are related!

I also have a list of Henry Fuller and Mary Ann Rose's children from the 1860 census.

Sorry for the confusion. Let me know if you can make sense of all this.

Dawn

Research: From a Family Bulletin Board Posting by Ora Kasten

My great grandparents were Christopher Henry Fuller and Arabella Fye. My Aunt provided me with the information that their children were: William Henry Fuller, Samuel Franklin Fuller, Adeline Fuller Collier , John Fuller, Christopher Fuller, Mary Ann Fuller, George Harrison (Harry) Fuller (my Grandfather), Orin Arnold Fuller, Margaret Elizabeth Fuller Pagel , Matilda Mae Fuller MilheiserCoopman . She did not provide me with any dates or other data, but I know that my father lived east of Oconto Falls, Oconto County. Christopher Henry Fuller's parents were Henry Fuller and Mary Ann Rose Fuller.

On 31 Mar 1874 when Arabella was 18, she married Christopher Fuller, son of Henry Fuller (1824-) & Mary Ann Rose (1827-), in Cuyahoga County, Ohio. Born on 19 Dec 1855 in Leachbaugh, Armstrong, Allegheny, Pennsylvania. Christopher died in Oconto Falls, Wisconsin, on 4 Oct 1930; he was 74. Buried on 6 Oct 1930 in Woodlawn Cemetery, Oconto Falls, Wisconsin.

Dear Alan,7

Thanks for correcting that. I haven't really got back to imputting the Fye's I'm still working on it. Boy you really found alot of your relatives. And they're all over huh? Just like mine although mine are mainly in the US. I'm kind of going to wait on working on the genealogy until after Christmas at least until I feel like I have something accomplished I am working on trying to get my Christmas cards sent to Washington.I think as soon as I get them off I will feel better and go back to using my time on the family stuff. And yes you were thinking right I am from Tacoma, Wa. Just to let you know how it went from what I have Christopher and Arabella went to Ohio and there first son William Henry Fuller (my ggreatgrandfather)he was born in Cleveland, Oh. But he moved to Oconto Falls, Wisconsin. He had my grandfather Owen Fuller. They then moved to Montana because they worked for the railroads. Then they moved to Raineer,Wa. where Owen met my grama Irene and got married my dad Jerry Fuller was born in Raineer, Wa. William also lived in Wa. but at least one son of his Charles Kellog Fuller still lived in Montana because when William passed away he was shipped to Montana to be buried. Owen never made it back to Montanabut apparently he wanted to. He died in Tacoma, Wa. in Jan. 16, 1963. I was born in Tacoma, Wa. on Jan. 31, 1963 so I never got to know him. And he was the last Fuller that was connected to the other Fullers in Wis. That knew family anyway. My Grama remarried and the only Fullers I grew up with were my dad Jerry Fuller and his sister Nola Fuller. So needless to say it was very difficult to find out my information. But I did find a connection. Just so you kind of got and idea where the Fullers traveled. I still haven't gotten any further than 1819 in Pa. for Henry Fuller very curious on who his parents were. Well I hope this helps someone. I will email more later when I have time but keep sending the messages and if I can help I will. Take Care, Kathy Burdge P.S I just remembered something else I have been meaning to tell you on your list for William Henry Fuller who married Minnie her middle name is Jennie not Jean Collier.

112. Mary Etta Bacon. Born in 1865.

Research: The marriage of Mary Elizabeth Bacon to Joseph Spice is substantiated by the fact that Mary Ann Bacon, her mother, is said to have died at the home of her daughter according to her obituary.  The respondent on the Death Certificate for Mary Ann Fye Bacon was Mrs. Joseph Spice.  We find a census entry for Joseph Spice in Ashland County, Lake Township, not far from where Camron and Mary Ann Bacon lived.  His wife, Mary, is listed at 16 years of age.  This matches with the 1910 census for Joseph and Mary Spice from Oconto Falls, Wisconsin.  Finally, the 1920 census lists Mary Ann Bacon with Joseph Spice as Mother-in-Law.

He operated a farm until his retirement to Oconto Falls in 1931.  Since then he had accepted occasional employment and had been working at the Coleman plant about six weeks.  He married Florence Hammond 49 years ago, and she survives along with two daughters, Mrs. Victor Bresczpennix, Lena; and Mrs. Hans Gudwher, Pound; and two brothers, Adolph, Oconto Falls and George, Manitowoc.  The bereaved wife and daughters have the sincere sympathy of all in this sorrow.

116. Charles Bacon. Born in 1872 in Knox, Ohio. Charles died in Ashland, Ohio, in 1921; he was 49.

Research: We know of the existence of Charles Bacon due to a letter from Stella Bacon Likes, the daughter of Charles Bacon and Jennie Richards.  In that letter, Stella states that Charles and Nancy Jane Fye are cousins, therefore they share a common grandparent.  Nancy’s father, David, then is a brother to Charles’ mother, who we readily identify as Mary Ann Fye Bacon.

Research: According to family sources, John Fye was a bit overweight due to drinking.  After his father David died he moved to Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, where he lived a few doors down from his sister, Clara Fye Frazier.  Apparently, he contracted pneumonia and on his way to the door collapsed and died.  Numa Knight remembers his was the first funeral she attended and it made quite an impression on her.  Hazel Fye Harp remembers that John was the first one to own an automobile in the family, and this can be seen quite clearly as we have several photographs of him with his car.

126. Mary Elizabeth Fye. Born on 2 Oct 1878 in Plain, Wayne, Ohio.4 Mary Elizabeth died in Plain, Wayne, Ohio, bef 1880; she was 1.

Research: Again, we have no record of Mary Elizabeth in the 1800 censuses or in any other vital records except her birth record.  Our only conclusion is that she died sometime between her birth in 1878 and the 1880 census.

127. Adaline Fye. Born in May 1880. Adaline died bef 1900; she was 19.

Research: Adaline appears on the 1880 census, but then seems to disappear.  We can only assume she died sometime between 1880 and 1900 as there is no family memory of an Aunt Adaline.  Also, we know from the 1900 census that Mary Elizabeth had thirteen total children, ten of whom lived. We know that the living ones were Ellen and Bill Carlin from her first marriage, and then eight Fye children: David, John, Charles, Hannah, Minnie, Clara Alta, Nancy Jane, and Arabella.

FRAZIER Clara Alta, 63 years, 805 Clover av., passed away Thursday at an Akron hospital.  Survived by one daughter, Mrs. Jessie Lutz of the residence; four sons, Daniel Frazier of Newton Falls, O.; Harry, Francis, and Frederick Frazier, all of Cuyahoga Falls; 12 grandchildren; two sisters, Mrs. Hannah Keen, West Salem, O., Mrs. Bell Hall, Albion, O.  Friends may call after 7 p.m. Saturday at the McGowan-Reid Funeral Home where services will be conducted Monday afternoon.  Time of service to be announced later.

Research: Akron Beacon Journal - 20 October 1950

Mrs. Alta Clara Frazier, 63 resident of Cuyahoga Falls for 34 years.

Research: It appears as though for some reason Daniel and Clara separated.  Sometime between 1928 and 1936 they separated and took residence apart.  Daniel moved to Rose Avenue where he lived until his death in 1966.  Although the city listing for 1950 says Clara is a widow, we know that can't be correct as the list of children in Daniel's obituary matches the children for Daniel and Clara - specifically Jessie and Daniel.  Also, note that Clara is living with her son Frederick W. in 1950.  Thus, Daniel and Clara had four known children, Jessie, Daniel, Frederick, and Francis.  After Clara's death in 1950, Daniel apparently remarried a Mamie Harter who had several children of her own.

This has been later affirmed by the Numa Halliwell Knight who said that Daniel Frazier drank a lot and was quite abusive.  She remembers going over to Clara’s home in Cuyahoga Falls and as soon as Clara saw anyone coming she would run out the back door and hide in the woods, as she was so ashamed of her home.  She really didn’t have anything.  After the children grew up, Clara divorced Daniel.  Another branch of the family on the Edwards side relates the same information about Daniel.

On 26 Dec 1911 when Clara Alta was 24, she married Daniel Frazier, son of John Frazier & Minerva Hodge, in Wayne, Ohio.20 Born on 4 Mar 1889 in Kent, Ohio. Daniel died in Kent, Ohio, on 20 Dec 1966; he was 77. Buried on 23 Dec 1966 in Crown Cemetery, Kent, Ohio.

Akron Beacon Journal - 20 December 1966

CUYAHOGA FALLS - Daniel Frazier, 77, a retired welder, died Monday at St. Thomas Hospital after a long illness.  Mr. Frazier of 823 Rose av. was born in Kent and had lived in this area over 50 years.  In 1958, he retired as a welder from the Falls Stamping and Welding Co.
