"... Frei ancestor from Switzerland. I too have Frei ancestors from Switzerland who settled in Milwaukee about 1855 ..."

There's a collection of about 35 Frei entries or references found in "Milwaukee's German Newspapers; an index of death notices and related items" (1844-1950) - including some from Swizerland. These include references to Kloten, Zürich, Switz.; Glasshütten, Säckingen, Baden; Daber; letters from Zürich; Augsburg; Breilingen, Donaueschingen, Baden (I particularly enjoyed indexing the marriage banns from Augsburg for a Johannes Frei - who knew?).

It's probably a good idea to include the "Frey" spelling in your search - there are about 240 entries or references in the current data file.
