The following biographical sketch for Samuel Frybarger can be found at Ancestry.com :

    Mr. Frybarger enlisted in Company K, 111th Ohio Volunteer Infantry Aug 15, 1862. he was a Private of Captain Jeremiah Bowlins, Company K, 111th Regiment of Ohio OVP. Pufty Vols. who was enrolled on the fifteenth day of August one thousand eight hlundred sixty two to serve three years of during the war is hereby discharged from the service of the United States this 27th day of June 1865 at Salisburyl, NC by reason of expiration of term of service.

    Around, 1870, Sam went to Tennessee to see about farming there. He had seen such large potatoes growing there while he was in the Union Army, that he thought it must be fertile ground. He soon found out that the people in Tennessee didn't care for "yankees' and Sam returned to northwestern Ohio. In 1875, Sam went to Pawnee County Kansas and secured a homestead there from the land office in Larned, Kansas. The Frybarger family remained there four years. Two years of protracted drought caused him to meet with entire failure of crops and he left Kansas.

    According to Sam's Civil War records, he was five feet eight inches tall, had dark hair and dark eyes. His occupation was farming.

    It is surmised that Sarah Ann Cook, second wife of Samuel, died in child birth with William Henry Frybarger, but this is not proven.

Children of Sadie and John:

  1. Wayne Frybarger, b. c. 1919. 1930 census at home in Fulton, Fulton Co., OH. Residence in Delta, OH. He married Charlotte Martineaux.
