Suggested edit: A quote from the partial autobiography of the Rev Henry Fry as reported in Memoir of Col. Joshua Fry, sometime professor in William and Mary College, Virginia, and Washington's senior in command of Virginia forces, 1754, etc., etc., with an autobiography of his son, Rev. Henry Fry, and a census of their descendants
by Slaughter, Philip,
Feb. 19, he lost his wife, who died suddenly of Apoplexy. His record of it is very touching. She breathed out her soul, he says, into the arms of her Beloved without a struggle — the heavenly traces in her face death could not erase. I had often read of the lovely aspect of death, but regarded it as a poetic effusion — now I realize it. We have lived together almost 44 years, and she always manifested a patient, meek and quiet spirit. We have had fifteen children. We have seen descendants through three generations, and he added a note, saying : " I have heard of the fourth generation in Kentucky."
Personal note: I have only seen 13 children identified by historians, so it is presumed 2 died very young. TY for this great memorial to several of my ancestors.
