TAKEN FROM "HISTORY OF CUMBERLAND COUNTY" PAGE 289.

HENRY N. FRITTS (deceased), of German descent, was born in New Jersey, July 6,
1824, and remained at home working on the farm and attending school until of
age, when he went to Clermont County, Ohio, and there married Hannah Kellogg.
After his marriage he engaged in farming, first renting, then buying a farm
which he cultivated until 1855, when he sold out and came to Cumberland County,
Illinois and bought 103 acres of new prairie land. He improved this, then sold
out and bought 260 acres. This he improved, placed in a high state of cultiv-
ation, and built a large, fine residence. He again sold out and bought 180
acres, the present homestead. He built a splendid residence, and otherwise
improved his farm; gave attention to raising fine breeds of horses and cattle.
His large estate was the result of energy and economy. He was a strong, active
temperance man, a consistent member of the Christian Church, charitable and
benevolent, and esteemed by all who knew him. He passed away leaving a widow
and eight children.
