Charles Isham Frye
b: 16 Sep 1879
d: 15 Jun 1911
Little is known about Charlie. According to family tradition, he was asuccessful photographer and earned enough money to be able to fund thepurchase of Hickory Hill farm for his father. The deed for the farm isto John Clay Frye, with no mention of funds from Charlie. However, hishalf-brother, John W. Frye, says the farm was purchased "through thethrift of Charlie". Charlie is not listed in the 1900 census with JohnClay Frye's family, but is listed in the 1910 census.

He evidently had health problems, and it is related that he haddifficulty with his digestive system, often being unable to keep his fooddown after a meal. He died during the night, either from excessivebleeding from his stomach or from choking. Other family members did notknow of his distress and gave him no assistance.
