I'm interested in talking to any Frie in the USA. My great grandfather was Johann Frie that settled in Freeport Min. in 1880. My grandfather Bernhard Frie came to Canada in 1903 and settled in Cudworth Sask.

Hello, I live in Colorado and am kin to many other Fries' throughout the country. The contigent is growing here in Colorado with the addition of my daughter (8/4/99), my brother's family (three boys), and the arrival of my parents to the state at the end of November. I also have two other brothers in Texas and many relatives in MN. I just received the Frie Family Book, while I am extremely disappointed with it, it does have some limited info. It was done by a another Frie family here in Colorado.

I see there are 3 Kyle Frie in Colorado. Sorry your family book not so great. I have a cousin in CA name of Ruth Bennett that keeps us all up to date. Think you are related to me since my tribe all from Freeport MN. Moved of Canada in 1903. Benedictin Bros. brought group of German Catholic from MN to the "land of milk and honey". That is with alot of work, and clearing the land they could have a piece. I have info on our American cousins-- about 15 years old. Any info you want? My great (near south west of Munster, and only on old maps of Germany)in October 1880. My home email is My husband has entered everyone into a geneology web site, perhaps I can down load it and send it to you if you are interested. Did I tell you there is a fellow by name of Hans Frie here in Surrey, BC that came from Germany after WW2. He says his Dad researched the name and it was org. Von Frie and is Prussian Royalty. Sorry no Swiss bank account. I have two other stories of name origin if you are interested.

Sorry I don't have any information about Frie family from NJ. Yes, they were probably from Germany. My family came from Schapteden near Munster. A Frie I know said his father researched the name after WW2 and says it was VonFrie and was Prussian royalty. I have family crest that shows they were land owners. Verna

My family is from Schapdetten (the books say Nottuln, which is the bigger village 1 mile from Schapdetten).
My grandfather is Anton Frie,
his father is Anton Frie, Nottuln, 10/29/1863
and his father is also Anton Frie, Nottuln, 06/07/1831.
I'm sure there is a connection to your family, Verna.

Benedikt: Yes, there must be a connection. My grandfather was born in Schapteden and I'd have to look up when. I know he died in 1935 and was about 65. He's buried in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. One of my Dad's brothers' name was Anton Frie. I don't know if they named him after anyone in particular. I'm writting from work so don't info right here. Verna

According to my family tree, an Anton Frie was born in 1810. His son Heinrich Frie born Feb 14, 1836 died in Min. 1912 (my great grandfather) They immigrated to USA in Oct 1880 to Freeport Mn. One of his four sons, Johan Bernhard (Ben) Frie was my grandfather. He was born April 4, 1864 in Schapdetten, died May 15, 1938 buried in Prince Albert Sask. He had three brothers: Henry Joseph, Herman and Joseph. Their families all in Min. today. One of my Dad's brothers was called Anton. I still have cousins in and around Cudworth, Sask. Hope this helps. We did family tree few years ago. My husband entered all the Frie family info into computer program and he tells me there are 1598 names in there!!!
