(^14/ NSATISFACTORY, indeed, is the record that must here
be given concerning tlie third daughter of George and
Mary Magdalena Frey. The name W'eigel or Weigle is
rather common in York County, and when the writer first
saw that the husband of EHzabeth was named ]\IichaeI. he recalled
a John ■\1. Weigel in York, and at once sought him. believing that
the M. might stand for Michael, and a family name be thus repro-
duced. But he soon learned that such was not the case; and this
was only the first of a long series of di^-aj/pointments. [.etters were
written, church records and court house searched, cemeteries visited
and old residents called upon: but all in vain. No one had e\'er
heard of a Michael Weigel.

There was one moment when it seemed that the secret might
be revealed. A member of another branch of W'eigels, who had
been spoken to about the matter, came to the writer one day and
said that among some old papers he had found the name of Michael
Weigel; but a subsequent examination cast a grave doubt as to
whether what had been supposed to be Michael actually was that
name, and at any rate in the connection in which it was used there
was nothing to indicate anything about the residence or family of
the man.

As previously stated^ the petition for inquest m the Ziegle
matter was the first source of knowledge of the existence of Eliza-
beth Frey and the name of her husband. Two years later her name
was discovered in the original Zion Reformed Church records, which
gives the date of her birth, Feb. 2}^, 1782, just a few months before
the death of her grandfather Frey. The only record of her mar-

iPaga 133.

riage is the statement in the Ziegle proceedings that Michael Wei gel
was her husband. Of Michael all that is known is that he appears
on the assessment books of Dover township in 1805, 1810, 1817 and
18 18, his occupation being a weaver, and his taxable property a
small house and lot and one cow.

The last of the Lanius deeds shows that Elizabeth and Michael
were both living in 1830, and that is the last data that could be found
al)Out them. At that time Elizabeth was only 48 years old, and it
was hoped that she had lived long enough after that date to bring
her within the recollection of some one who might yet be living;
but the hope was in vain.

The Zion Reformed Church records show the baptism of two
children of Elizabeth and Michael Weigel,

Elizabeth Weigel, b. Dec. 14, 1804.

Susan W^eigel, b. Apr. 9, 1806.

Doubtless, when these children reached maturity, they married,
and thus, with the change of name, their identity as Weigels has
been lost.

At the graveyard connected with Ouickel's Church there is a
tombstone erected to the memory of

George Weigel, b. Aug. 4, 1803; d. Sept. 27, 1842.

This man might ha^-e been a son of Elizabeth's, the name
George lending color to this view.

1 632 1 William Frey has a dim recollection that when he was
but a lad, there came to his father's house a young man named
Weige, from the neighborhood of the Conewago, who was said to
be a cousin of some sort ; but was uncertain about the first name.

This concludes all that can be said about this youngest daughter
of George Frey. It is exceedingly disappointing, almost humiliat-
ing; but, in the absence of any assurance that further delay might
produce fuller results, the writer is compelled to close this chapter
and be content that he was able to preserve her name in this history
of her brothers' and sisters' descendants, even although all trace of
her own children is lost.



165 S^acob Jfre^.




'(^'%' HY the writer was told the name of this particular
one of his great-uncles, instead of any one of the other
three, is unknown ; but it is certain that it was the
only one he had any knowledge of until after work
on this book was begun. Possibly the older members of his father's
family may have known of others, but to him Jacob was the con-
necting link with the men of former days.

When the work of discovering his ancestors and relatives was
undertaken, this name was recalled and inquiries made of older
relatives and also of descendants of Jacob Frey. Such facts as
could be gleaned are rather meager, and it is to be regretted that
not more can be said about a man who succeeded in rising above
the humble circumstances by which he was surrounded.

According to the records of Zion Reformed Church, "Jacob
Frey, born Oct. 22, 1784, was baptized Nov. 14, 1784; parents,
George Frey and Alary Magdalena."

When Jacob was about 12 years old his father died, and the
circumstances of the family were such that he was apprenticed as
a tailor, which pursuit he followed for many years. By thrift and
economy he acquired property not only in Freystown but also in
York, and owned the frame buildings on the lot on the southwest
corner of Market and Duke streets, his son David conductinsr a
printing establishment in the building on the Market street front
and Jacob, and his widow after him, living in a house on the rear
end of the lot along Duke street.

There was a Jacob Frey who went with York troops to Balti-
more in the War of 1812; but it is impossible to say whether it was
this Jacob or the one whose daughter 1651 married.



1 82 georgp: frey.

He was married Nov. 25, 1809, to Catharine Huber, b. Dec.
17, 1788, and he died Dec. 3, 1854. His -widow survived him nearly
20 years, dying July 9, 1874. Their descendants follow:

165 1 JOHN FREY. The writer has been unable to learn
any more of this oldest son of Jacob and Catharine Frey than the
bare fact that there was such a person, and that he left York and was
never heard of afterward.

1652 BENJAMIN FREY, b. Mar. 28, 1813 ; d. Mar. 6, 1850.
He lived on the east side of South Queen street, York. M. Anna
Maria Frey, a daughter of a Jacob Frey who came to this country
when comparatively young, as it is said that his wife was only thir-
teen years old when they were married, just before starting for
America. If there was any relation between the two Jacobs it must
have been quite distant. Benjamin left no issue, and his widow
afterward married Caleb Kepner and died, a widow a second time,
in May, 1900.

TILL retaining his predilections for the Reformed Church,

and his commanding influence in the family, George Frey

had his sixth child baptized in that faith, and on the

records of Zion Reformed Church is found the entry,

Daniel Frey, son of George and Mary Magdalene Frey, born

January ii, 1786.

No other mention of him has been found in any court house
records or church books, and the writer is unable to say when he was
married, when he died or where he is buried.

The first knowledge of him was obtained from 16735 Marcellus
Frey, who spoke of him as a great-uncle, and knew that one of his
daughters married a Wilhelm. and referred to some descendants
then living in York. 16321 Frey also knew of a Daniel Frey. The
inquest in the Ziegle estate is the only court record of Daniel Frey.
A little additional information was obtained from Charles M. Wil-
helm, a grand-son,

Daniel was a lime burner by occupation, resided in York, and
was married to Margaret Stengel. Their descendants follow :

1661 LOUISA FREY, b. Mar. 17. 180S: d. Nov. 3. 1885.
