I have a Joseph Fruin b1744 Appleton, Berkshire UK (now Oxon) on my family tree. His father was also John b1703 Caversham Oxon UK. My John married a Katherine Morrice b1715. This John & Katherine also had a daughter Catherine Fruin b1841, sister to Joseph b1744. I wondered if this could possibly be from your Fruin family. If so please do not hesitate to contact me re this.
: I recently received information that my Great Uncle had on my Fruin line. There were letters that he had received from people in Washington State,by the name of Bob and Thelma Smith .One letter has mention of John Fruin (1785) leavig Liverpool Eng. 5 June 1832 and arriving in New York 13 July 1832 aboard ship "Carrol of Carrolton".It lists names and birth dates as; John B. Fruin (1854)
had a father Joseph Fruin(1816)whose father was John Fruin (1785)whose father was Joseph(1744) whose father was John(1708).John was married to his cousin Catherine Fruin (1714).there is mention in the letter to a Lora Lee Harris, a Mable Cook(1880) from Tacoma.I have no idea who these people are except that Lora Lee Harris was listed as being a cousin.
There is Mention of Elizabeth Fruin also known as Libby who was born 1845 marrying a man by the last name of McFarland and moving to Canada and never being heard from again.Emma Fruin born 1848? whom died in Fall River,Mass. and her sister Ella who was in Oneida,New York that had a son by her first marraige by the name of Howard Beers and a daughter named Mary Hadley Moore.If any one should have any information about anything I have wrote please respond...Thank You .
