Thomas Jasper Frye

Thomas Jasper Frye

b: 1 Feb 1857
d: 30 Dec 1906
Nothing has been found to suggest where the name Thomas Jasper originated.

At some point Thomas rented land near the old Hairston Plantation alongSmith River near the present location of Bassett High School. He becamea lay preacher and was away from home a lot, either preaching orfollowing another preacher. This often left his family to cope with thefarming. Daughter Dora said that about 1900 he purchased land onMarrowbone Creek where Shannon Hills is now located, but no deed recordhas been found. However, the 1910 census places the family in theRidgeway district. It is possible that Thomas rented land in that area.His son, Ernest, did purchase tracts of land there in 1915-1917.

According to Patsy Frye, Thomas was buried in the Fry Cemetery (on thefarm where Isham is buried). A marker, however, is in the Mountain ViewCemetery, Ridgeway, VA, beside his wife, placed there by his family.
