REV. JACOB FRY, D. D.
JACOB FRY, a lineal descendant of Heinrich Frey, who settled near to Philadelphia several years before the advent of William Penn, and a son of Hon. Jacob Fry, a member of Congress from Pennsylvania, was born at the Trappe, in Montgomery Co., Pa., on Feb. 9, 1834. His early and successful application as a student was a stepping stone to a collegiate course of education in his 14th year. He was graduated at Union College, New York, in the class of 1851, and at the Theological Seminary at Gettysburg, Pa., in 1853. His first pastorate was over the Lutheran Church at Carlisle, Pa., which he held from 1854 to 1865. In the second year of this service he married Miss Eliza J. Wattles, of Gettysburg, Pa., who still survives.
