Several sources/links listed at bottom of My FRY Family  website.

1) Some of the FRYs went to Iowa about the same time as their second cousins ODENBAUGHs...It would be interesting to learn if they were in the same area.

2) SPEERS & FRYES-1772   (previous notes indicate Catherine FRY was from Winchester, VA...perhaps she was related to Abraham Frye...click on link to read more details)

Henry married Regina FROMAN settled on farm known as Gibstoton, on the Moon River, below Belle Vernon. Abraham Frye and family located on the opposite side of the river. Owned land from Maple Creel on the outskirts of Charleroi, to Pigeon Creek in Monongahela, from the Moon River, to where Fallowfield township school now stands, except for the Grant and Wickerham Farms, near what is now Fisher Heights.

They came here from their homes in a place 18 miles south of Winchester, Virginia. Abraham Sr. settled near the river and built a home on the portion of land now owned by Carrie Coyle and Dr. A.S. Sickman.
