Fryar / Fryer of South Carolina; (William? Pitheny?)
Posted by: J Turner (ID *****2591) Date: November 27, 2006 at 10:11:15
  of 949

Seeking parents of William Fryar of Marion Co., SC, who married Bethanie UNK. Lived in SC from at least the early 1800's. May have been born there, about 1794 - 1797.

NOTES:

1830 Census: Listed as William Fryar in Marion Co., SC.

1840 Census: Listed as William Fryar in Marion Co., SC.

1850 Census: Listed as William Fryar in Marion Co., SC. Suggests he was born about 1797.

1860 Census: Listed as (Pitheny?) Fryar in Marion Co., SC. Suggests he was born about 1794. Shows him as a widower. His apparent daughter, "C. A. Timmons" (aka Ellen), 34, resides in the home. Apparent Timmons grandchildren also in the home: Elizabeth, 12, Sarah, 9, and W. M., 6. Lists his cash owned as $13,000 and the value of his real estate as $22,000. This was a very wealthy sum in those days. His sons, most in ages from their late 20's to early 30's, still reside on the farm, an indication that it was an ample plantation large enough to provide employment to them all.

Where does this name Pitheny come from? Ancestry.com has transcribed it as something like Pithery. Was this really WIlliam? Or a brother who took care of William's children?
