Subject: Re: Abraham Fry deed Date: Sun, 17 Jan 1999 11:07:53 EST From: LRoupe@aol.com To: firstname.lastname@example.org Helen, this is an abstract of the deed in Hampshire Co Court-House in Romney. I found this deed in Hampshire Co Court House, Romney, WVa. This is for everyone researching the Huffman-Fry families. (I have 3 Huffman & 3 Fry lines). This is in Deed Book 11, pages 370-371-372 dated 10-4-1798, between Jacob Mouser, Sr. of the County of Hampshire, State of Virginia & Catharine his wife of the one part, & Henry Huffman & Catharine his wife, Herbert Humes & Margaret his wife, George Huffman & Juliana his wife, Peter Fry, Susannah Fry, Catharine Fry, Abraham Fry, Mary Fry & Elisabeth Fry, heirs & legal representatives of Abraham Fry, late of the County of Berkeley, decd. Whereas the said Jacob Mouser did contract for, bargain & sell unto the said Abraham Fry in his lifetime for a valuable consideration a certain tract or parcel of land, situate lying & being in the County of Hampshire on the Waters of Little Cacapon, but before a deed could be properly executed for the said land the said Abraham Fry departed this life intestate, whereby the interest & estate in the said land became vested in his above named children. The land was formerly granted by the Commonwealth of Virginia to the said Jacob Mouser by Patent bearing date the 1st day of March 1792. P.S. this deed has 3 of my ancestors, (1) George & Juliana (Fry) Huffman, (2) Peter Fry who mrd Sarah Chapman & (3) Susannah Fry who mrd another George Huffman (a s/o John Huffman, [of John, the progenator] who d:1824 in Berkeley Co,(W)Va). There were a lot of Huffman-Fry inter-marriages before & after coming to Greene Co. LloydSusan Jones Pentico descends from Catrouch and Henry Huffman/Hoffman dcd DEC/Jan 1811,2 Will probated Jan 1812.
