Isham Washington Fry , Jr. , Jr.

b: 3 Sep 1846
d: 26 Dec 1921
According to family lore, Isham went west, and the family lost contactwith him. This is not entirely true. In searching deeds in Henry Countyin September, 2000, a reference was found to a Chancery Court Record(#1108) which, in essence, was the settlement of the estate of Isham W.Fry. One of the last actions in that record was payment of a finalbequest to his heirs. Isham W. Frye, Jr. was paid $96 and signed areceipt for it. The receipt and a notation in the court record indicatethat he was living in Carthage, Indiana.

Follow-up research revealed that Isham Fry, Jr. was listed there in the1870 census, and his age was given as 21. He was listed with theKirkwood family, and his occupation was laborer. He was listed in theHenry County, Virginia census in 1860, so it appears that he moved toIndiana in the late 1860's. It is probable that he went west with hissister, Luzena, and her husband, George Neal, who are also listed in the1870 census living near Carthage, Indiana.

A marriage record has been found showing that Isham, Jr. married LouisaRhodes August 10, 1875 in Indiana. The 1880 census indicates that he hadan eight month old son, Noah H. Fry. By the 1900 census, a son, Jesse(born September 1880), and a daughter, Flora (born May 1886), are listed,but his wife is not listed then, and the record indicates that Isham wasa widower. In the 1900 census Noah H. Fry is listed as a farmhand withthe Newsom family. In the 1910 census Isham and Jesse (with a note thatJesse is divorced) are listed as a household. In 1920 Isham is listedalone, and Jesse is listed as a household with Grace M. Fry, age 21, hissecond wife. Isham's descendants in Indiana remember very little abouthim except that he was a farmer. A great-grandson furnished a memorialcard showing his date of death. It can be assumed that he is buried inIndiana.
