HENRY B. FREY
Henry B. Frey is a farmer on section 28, Jordan Township, and was born July 16, 1841, in Lancaster Co., Pa. His father, Henry Frey, was a native of the same State, and was a farmer by vocation. He was reared to manhood on his father's homestead, and, in 1865, was married to Lizzie Kreider. She was a native of Lancaster County, where she was married, and has become the mother of 12 children. One named Annie died in infancy. Lizzie A., Hattie, John, Amos, Henry, Jacob, Abraham, Daniel, Mary, Martin and Noah were born in the order named. The family remained in Lancaster County until 1863, coming West to Sterling in the spring of that year. In 1869 Mr. Frey bought 80 acres of land on section 28, which had been partly improved. His farm now includes 240 acres in advanced agricultural condition, and well stocked with excellent grades of cattle.
Mr. Frey is a Republican in political preference and relations.
