Conrad Frederick and Ann Brown Frederick are my maternal great great great grandparents. When I began setting up my genealogy website back in the late 1990's I had somewhat sketchy research. In 2001 I had to migrate my home page to a new server. That link is listed below. As website ownerships change, I am not able to access my homepage to make additions and corrections. That is a major reason that I decided to blog.
Conrad (Conrod/Cunrad) Frederick, the son of Nicholas and Catherine Frederick, was born in Pennsylvania on April 5, 1778. The earliest record for Conrad is a listing in Lycoming County, Pennsylvania as a taxpayer in 1796. Conrad married Ann Brown, who was born between 1780-1790, in Pennsylvania. One account lists Ann as a "native of Ireland." Perhaps her parents were born there. Using their known oldest child's birth year 1804, I would estimate the year of their marriage as 1802 or 1803. Conrad was a farmer, but it is not known if he, like his father, Nicholas Frederick, brother, Joseph Frederick and son, Joseph Charles Fredrick, was also a cooper by trade.
In “The History of Columbiana County, Ohio” by Horace Mack, on page 235, it mentions, “Conrad Frederick purchased a part of the north half (of Salem Township) which descended to his son Joseph (Joseph C. Frederick), who sold to Michael Frederick, his cousin.” This land eventually became the town of Washingtonville, Ohio. Conrad is part of the 1800-1810 Ohio Tax List as having property in Columbiana County, Ohio in 1810, although no township is mentioned.

Ann Brown Frederick died after 1840. She is buried in Trinity Lutheran Church Cemetery, Washingtonville, Mahoning County, Ohio. The death date on Find A Grave is incorrect. Ann is mentioned in Conrad's will and the amount of money she received from the sale of goods is listed in the 1833 probate record and enumerated on the 1840 Ohio census.
I would like to mention that I have never seen actual records for the deaths of Conrad Frederick or Ann Brown Frederick. No one has presented a Family Bible or records from the Trinity Lutheran Church or a tombstone. The dates on this blog I found on Find A Grave and Ancestry. Where the dates came from is anyone's guess.
