This looks like it may be him, even though the name is mispelled. The 1940 Census has it spelled as Fries.
https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/M9YH-79N

Brockton City, Ward 3, Plymouth Massachusetts
Enoch Freas, age 35, born January 1865, Sweden
Annie Freas, age 30, born Sweden
Eric W. Freas, age 11, born Sweden
Ingebar V. Freas, age 9, born Sweden
Henry G. Freas, age 6, born Massachusetts
Esther E. Freas, age 2, born Massachusetts

The 1940 census shows them in the same place, with only Esther at home

It looks like they had two more children, Arvid, born on either 27 October or 7 October, 1900, and Edith, born about
1904.

They are hard to find, because their surname was spelled differently in every census. Here is Enoch in 1910, with name spelled as Frize - Carl Frize is listed as a nephew
https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/TH-1951-25973-22948-7?...

Here they are in 1920, transcribed as Tries

Here is the draft registration card for Enoch and Annie's son Eric. He married a woman named Sadie, but I didn't see any children listed with them.

That would depend on finding an obituary for the parents or one of the children. I would suggest you post a message on the Plymouth, Massachusetts board here
http://boards.rootsweb.com/localities.northam.usa.states.mas...

List their names and approximate birth dates, and ask if someone can help find death dates for Enoch and Annie. Arvid Fries was born in 1900, and died 23 April 1983 in Wareham, Plymouth County, Mass.


Also, Henry G. Fries died in Quincy Massachusetts on
14 March 1972 Here is a link to the Quincy library, where they will do a newspaper search for his obituary
