Surnames: Frey, Frei
I'm looking for information on John F. Frey and his wife Magdalena, both born in Germany. As early as I can find them at this time is the 1870 census in Auglaize county, Ohio. They are there until their deaths. John was born May 1832 and Magdalena was born in Dec 1831. She was buried in Elm Grove in 1911. John died between the 1900 and 1910 census'.
Their children were:
~John Frederick Frey (1857-1942) who married Ida Jane Reeves;
~William Frey/Frei (ca 1862);
~Magdalena Frey/Frei (ca 1864);
~Christian Frey (1866-1932) who married Minnie;
~Eliesabeth Frey/Frei (ca 1868), she shows in the 1880 census, but isn't present in the 1870 with the family; ~Christina Frey/Frei (ca 1869);
~Carl F. Frey/Frei (ca 1873);
~August Lewis Frey (1875-1928) who married Grace Standish; ~Matilda Frey/Frei (1880-?);
~3 unknown children, or 4, if this Eliesabeth isn't actually their child. Magdalena was the mother of 12 children with 7 living, according to the 1900 census.
Does anyone know who John F.'s parents were? Or Magdalena's maiden name? I know Frey/Frei was a popular surname in Germany, and its spelling variations can be confusing.
Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.
