Our subject acquired his education in his native land, where he remained until 1832, at which time he came to America;
he labored by the day and month to get a start for himself, and was one of the early settlers of Liberty Township,

he added to this eighty acre tract until he at one time owned 590 acres. He has assisted his children to a start
in the world, and now owns over 300 acres of fine land. Mr. Fry was united in marriage, in 1839, with Susan Spangler,
