According to John Frei's (1877-1952) death certificate, he was a dairyman/cattle rancher. He was born in Sankt Gallen, Schweiz (Saint Gallen, Switzerland) to unknown parents. His closest informant was son, John Frei Jr. John Frei did work in the Sierra area during the forties (according to his draft card) and that was very common for Swiss immigrants in California at the time to work in dairies. He did fight in the Spanish American War of 1898 as an American soldier, and I assume it was his pledge to show his patriotism as an American. He wasn't born as John Frei but as Thomas Ulrich, and he fought in the Spanish American as Thomas Ulrich. The only Thomas Ulrich that is listed in the Spanish American war registries is Thomas Ulrich who fought for Memphis Tennessee's Volunteer 2nd Infantry Company D. He did legally change his name to John Frei in 1904. John Frei did live in Fair Oaks in 1952. His cause of death was renal disease (Chronic Kidney Disease). He died at the age of 74.
