Hi Liz and Alicia, Thank you very much for your kind offer. I am searching for the birth of Job Fry, circa 1800, Somerset, England and marriage to Elizabeth ? sorry no further details. The only information I have found to date is Family Search IGI where it states a son Henry Fry born 1819 Paulton Somerset, parents Job and Elizabeth Fry. Would be wonderful if any information could be found. Thank you both very much once again. Elizabeth.
