FAMILY NOTES: (Provided by Barbara Majid)
John Fry was born in Ohio in 1844. In 1874 he was living in Champaign County, Illnois.

His wife, Margaret Cresap, was 15, and John was 35 at the time of their marriage. Their first 3 
children were born in Champaign, Illnois. Their first son Elton died as an infant.

I have been unable to find the birth or death place of the next two children Sarah and Emmanuel. They 
both died a month apart in 1886. John and Margaret lived in Sibley, Iowa and surounding areas. The 
rest of their children Mary May, Edmond, and John Clarence were born in Iowa.

By 1901 John and Margaret were in the 1901 city directory in St. Joseph, Missouri. They lived at 3211 
Locust Street. This is where they spent the rest of their lives. They both were members of the Dunkard 
Church in St. Joseph.

John was still working at the age of 71 in Mokaska Mills as a stationary engineer. That means he fired 
the boilers at the mill.  In 1916 John fell on some ice on a sidewalk and hurt his hip he was unable to 
work after this, and was bedridden until the time of his death in 1918. He tried to sue the city of 
St. Joseph, see the writeup on the trial.

His wife Margaret Cresap has a history written on her that extends back to the 1600's in England. They 
are all descendants of a Thomas Cresap.
