Rachel born 5-29-1698 married second time to James Miller of James & Catherine Miller. Sarah born 7-15-1700 and John born 12-20-1703. This information taken our of a book 929-3748 Bjorkman. Records of Carlow Mtg. "Immigration of Irish Quakers, Birmingham, Chester County, Penna. They settled in Birmingham where John died. Benjamin Fred who married Deborah Hadley had a son Benjamin Fred who died in New Castle 1752.(no children) Nicholas Fred/Freed had Joseph born 11-27-1727 married Sarah Hadley d/o Joshua Hadly, province of Virginia. They married 10-18-1753. Sarah married 10-25-1753 to William Hunt, son of Joseph, in Chester, Pa. They also had John, Catherine, & Mary, no information given. John Freed was born 12-20-1703.

Births R929-374813 Hum 1682-1800/Births/Chester Co. Pa. I had hopes that this Benjamin could be the one I was looking for as Benjamin Freed, as the Benjamin Freed I am looking for is on the 1790 census in Chester, Pa. In 1820 Harrison Co. Ohio/ and 1830 Columbiana County, Ohio. In 1840 MASON, Wva, 1850 Mason,Wva. I`m not certain that the one on the 1790 census is his father or not but Benjamin Freed was born in 1790 and this Benjamin did have two children in 1790. This family used the name of Fredd, Fred, and Freed. They are Irish Quakers. Perhaps you can look on the Freed Board and find your relatives. If this helps would you please contact me to let me know if this Benjamin connects to the one in Columbiana county, Ohio. Thanks.
