Here is another Fries. They did not emigrate but many of their grandchildren did and settled in Ohio. None were surnamed Fries, however.
Johann Fries of Seyweiler, parish of Seyweiler, in the Bliesgau, Pfalz Germany. Nearest big city was Zweibruecken to the east (and Saargemuend to the southwest).
Johann married Anna Catherina Fraentzel about 1747 in the Bliesgau, and their daughter Magdalena married Jacob Mueller. Jacobs children and their families emigrated in the 1848 and settled in New Washington, Crawford County, Ohio.
My objective is to exchange information regarding the Fries family in Germany.
