I don't have alot of info on Thomas Stanfield Frith's brothers or sisters. I know he married Anna L. Roberts in 1864. They had three son's William Maurice,Tilden,and Captain Hermon Frith. They also had two infants to die at birth and possibly a girl [name unknown]. My family comes from Willaim Maurice's children. I hope this helps.

The name rings a bell! I believe I met Elenor Dan Grey in the 1980's in Broadhead, KY. They are my dad's (great?)aunt (great?)uncle, if I recall correctly. ("Aunt Nonie" Uncle Dan) Thank you for the info.

Here's a bit more info for you!

Thomas Stanfield Frith and Anna Liza Roberts (m. Mar 1874) were the parents of
Tilden (b. Aug 1876), William Maurice (b. 28 Aug 1880 d. 20 Dec 1962)
and Captain Herman (b. 7 Jun 1884 d. 10 May 1952). They also had
three daughters, twin girls born premature 29 Sep 1874 (one lived 9 days and the
other lived 12 days); another daughter was born dead on 25 Sep 1878.

Thomas' parents were Stanfield Freeling Frith (1801-1860) and Ruth Maddox.
Both Thomas and Anna were born in Lincoln County, KY.

I have a really good picture of them if anyone is interested.

Classification: Marriage
Surnames: Frith and Pike
As a grandson of the Captain Hermon Frith, b.abt 1883 in Brodhead, Rockcastle Co. [KY] I know that the he and his father were grocers in Brodhead. His father was Thomas Stanfield Frith, b. 1848 in R. Co. His father was Stanfield Frith, b. 1813 in R. Co. Stanfield married Ruth Maddox, b. 1818. I have three children to this marriage. Stanfield divided thousands of acres to Thomas Stanfield Frith. TSF divided his land among the three boys: CHF, Maurice and Tilden. The Captain Hermon Frith portion was so large it would take me 8-10 hours of walking to encircle it as a young teenager. The land was located at the intersection of Boone's fork and the town river. Thousands of Indians must have lived there previously because there were many, many arrowheads cast everywhere. There were some hillside Indian graves even I saw as a boy. There is an old Frith only cemetery on the Frith land. Trees have taken it over, because it was located in a pasture with a fence surrounding it. The tombstones are no longer legible. The three brothers seemed to have had no desire to continue the tradition because each sold thousands of acres.
As far as I know none of them ever lived in poverty.
CHF married Amy Pike & they had ten children.
My father's name was James Lester Frith. He married Marianne Lingham [aka Marian Linghum]. JLF had 7 children among three women.
