Frey Family, continued

Third Generation, descendants of Johann Peter Frey and Catharina Walk

Johann Peter Frey was born in Wingen, Alsace, in 1729, and immigrated with his parents and siblings in 1733. He married Catharina Walk (1739-1815) in either 1756 or 1757 in North Carolina. Catharina's memoir states that they were married on March 23, 1756, but the Records of the Moravians in NC (6:2909) reports that they celebrated their 50th anniversary in 1807.

We do not believe that Jacob Frey is the father of Sarah Fry Ellis (1826-1870) or Permelia Fry Ratliff Buzbee (1841-1870), as has been stated in a Buzbee family history. We think that they are most likely the daughters of Abraham Frey and Mary (Polly) Jourdan.
