  • Notes 
      1. Censuses:
      1850 US: Ingham, Ingham, Michigan, p. 34b, house 305, family 305 [note that Matthew D. Frederic lives 7 doors away]:
      Ambrose Fredericks, 32, farmer, $80 real estate, NY.
      Cecilia Fredericks, 19, PA.
      John Torrey, 43, farmer, Unknown.
      Isabelle Torrey, 15, PA.
      John Torrey Jr., 11, PA.

      2. Appears that Cecilia and Melissa were possible sisters as reported in their separate marriages to Ambrose Frederick. Ambrose in the various censuses only shows his wife Cecilia in the 1850 census and then Melissa thereafter, which coincides with the marriage records below. See the following:
      Received 30 Jul 2003 from Frederick descendant and researcher Mary Lou Spaulding, 1502 Haney Dr., Hays, KS 67601, 785-628-6465. The following is a partial excerpt concerning the following relation to David Frederick:
      1838-1867; Ingham Co. Michigan Marriages (FHL book 977.426 V 25m):
      P. 63: Ambrose Frederick, 30, Ingham Twp. and Cecilia Northrup, 19, Vevay, 11 Apr 1850, by H. Parker, J.P. Rherben Dermuth (or Demuth) and Choney Converse, Vevay, Witnesses. 2:188.
      P. 63: Ambrose Frederick, 31, Ingham Twp. and Miss Melissa Northrup, 22, Vevay, 7 Aug 1851, at house of Thomas Northup, Vevay, by Hiram Parker, J.P. Thomas Northrup and Emily Northrup, Vevay. Witnesses. 2:207-208.
      (MLS note: I mention Ambrose and Mathew Frederick, marriages and Land Records. These two young men are mentioned in David's Bible Records and have land just across the border from David when he was in Handy Township, Livingston county, Michigan. Whether they are relatives or not will have to be searched and confirmed or not. There are also a number of Fredericks in Washtenaw County who have names simlar to some of those found in our Fredericks family. However, there are also several families in both these Counties with the name Frederick who migrated from northern Michagan, and are not related to our Frederick family.)
