Birth: Aug. 2, 1789, Ireland
Death: Sep. 22, 1863
Chautauqua County
New York, USA

Born in Ireland; died in Frewsburg, NY

I know quite a bit about the Frew family of Frewsburg, but your 1770s date is a generation too early. Hugh and Mary (Russell) Frew emigrated to the US from Killyleagh, near Belfast, in 1794, bringing with them their three sons John, James and David. John and James settled the town of Frewsburg in the opening years of the 1800s. I am descended from John Frew and know quite a bit about John's and James' descendants. (Brother David died quite young.) Feel free to e-mail me directly for more info. -- Bob Corcoran at

John suvived his two brothers, James and David, by many years. His son, Josiah was my great grandfather. He later had land and a sawmill on the Allegheny River (Onoville) where he raised his family, but died and was buried in Frewsburg, NY. Josiah had a brother, Jefferson, who died about 1900.
