Frady Family Genealogy Forum
A. J. Frada (Andrew J. Frady) was a parolee at Appomattox Courthouse, VA, April 9, 1865. He joined the CSA at Newton (Catawba County), NC, on August 13, 1861, as Andrew J. Frada. He was a private in Co. C, 28th Reg't, NC. There are 12 cards on his service in the National Archives. They show that he was a mechanic, carpenter, and cattle driver. He appears on a report at Jackson Hospital, Richmond, VA, April 15, 1864, with paralysis, and June 17, 1864, at Wayside Hospital, Richmond, VA. He signed his name A. J. Frada (real fancy) on 14 June, 1864, on a pay receipt for $44.00 for three months at $11 per month for a furlough. He was examined by A. P. Hill, Maj. Gen., in 1862.
It's interesting to me that he used the spelling "Frada" in his own signature. This is the pronunciation that is closest to the German pronunciation of the name, Wrede. I believe his great-great grandfather was the immigrant, Carl Simon Wrede.
