I recently located an issue of Nov. 1994 "Frady Family Archives Newsletter." On p9 'Part 2 of George Washington Frady's Descendants' appear. William Alford Frady, the son of James Hamilton Frady and Martha Melvenna Crawford, begins at the bottom of column 3. It states as follows:

"William Alford Frady was born on October 16, 1868 in the Boardtown District of Gilmer County, George, the fourth child of James and Martha Frady.

"On October 18, 1888, he married Sarah Jane Key.

"Known as 'Bill' to family members, William Alford Frady supported his family by farming, working in a saw mill and various odd jobs. He is remembered for an excellent signing [sic - should be singing] voice. He was injured in a fall from a scaffold while building a chimney for Tom Miller, and must have suffered head injuries from which he never recovered. He lost his vision about six months before he died about 1905, age the age of 37. He was buried at Buckhorn Church Cemetery beside his infant son, Clifford Frady, and oldest child, James Levi Frady.

"After the death of her husband, Sarah Jane Key Frady married twice more. About two months after the death of William Alford Frady, she married a man named Hayes and moved to Knoxville, Tennessee. She later married a man named Roper and lived in Maryland.

"William Alford and Sarah Jane Key Frady had eight children:

"James Levi Frady, born May 24, 1890 in Gilmer County, Georgia, died December 19, 1930, was married on December 14, 1915 to Elsie Frady, born Mary [sic - should be May] 23, 1898 in Gilmer County, Georgia.... [Paragraph continues with names of children and grandchildren.]

"Shirildy T. Frady, born March of 1893, married a man named Green and had three daughters. Shirildy Frady Green died when the children were small.

"Martin V. Frady, born March of 1895, married Mamie Ledford and lifed in Cherokee County, North Carolina....

"Homer Frady, born in 1895, married several times, lived in several places, and had several children.

"Clifford Frady, born about 1897, died at age two weeks.

"Stella Frady, born October 15, 1900, married Pat Varner and had five children....

"Margaret Frady, born Jan 2, 1902, married Charlie Wilson and had no children. When her mother, Sara Jane Key Frady remarried, Margaret Frady moved with her to Cleveland, Tennessee where, at the age of 12, she went to work in a hosiery mill making $1.00 a day. She supported herself and sewed her on clothes. She married Charlie Wilson at the age of 33, and they moved to Chicago, Illinois where she lived for 40 year.. [sic] Three years after their marriage, she divorced Charlie Wilson (she never took his name). She later returned to Chattanooga, Tennessee and lived near her cousin, Sybil Key. She then moved to Calhoun, Georgia where she lives today [1994] near her nephew Warren Claude Frady and his wife Daphene Gravitt Frady.

"Willie Mae Frady, born in 1903, married Cliff Brown and had twins of which one died."


My gg-g'fa was George Ervin McDuffy "Mack" Frady. He was the s/o George Washington "General" Frady who was the s/o Thomas Hezekiah Frady who was the s/o Charles Frady (aka Carl Simon Wrede) & Elizabeth -- . (I still have to thank Louise for getting me this far!)
