Muscatine County History - 1889, page 361
Henry Fry, one of the old settlers of Muscatine County of a third of century, now residing on section 31, Cedar Township, is a native of Somerset Co., PA, born Jan 5, 1814. His parents, George and Mary Fry had nine children Elizabeth, Susanna, John, Rebecca, Henry, Katy, Mary, Tilda, and Liddie, but weather all are yet living our subject does not know. The days of his boyhood and youth were spent upon his fathers farm, but upon attaining his majority he left home and began working by the month for farmers in the neighborhood. This he continued for 4 years, but when 25 years of age was united in the holy bonds of matrimony with Miss Mary Fitzgerald, after which he purchased 90 acres of land which formerly belonged to his grandfather's estate. Later he rented for a time, but subsequently purchased a farm of 300 acres, which he immediately began to cultivate and improve. Seven years were there passed, when he sold it at an increase of $500 above the price which he paid, and bought another farm the same year, comprising about 300 acres, for which he paid $1,700. Upon that farm he continued to reside for 6 years, when he had the opportunity to sell for $2,500, which he did, and then came to Muscatine County arriving in 1855, purchasing 80 acres of land in Cedar Township, and upon that tract he made his home for 8 months, when he removed to his present place of residence on section 31 of the same township. He now owns 300 acres of land, and carries on general farming, though only cultivating about 140 acres himself, renting the remainder He also gives considerable attention to the raising of cattle and hogs, shipping 40 to 100 head of hogs annually, but his cattle sales are not as extensive as in former years. Mr. and Mrs. Fry are the parents of 14 children, two of whom died in infancy: Noah who was born July 21, 1841, was killed at Indianapolis Ind, in a railroad accident, which was caused by the collision of two trains, when he was returning from the war; Josiah, born Dec 4, 1842, is a resident of this county; Cyrus, born June 27, 1844, is engaged in farming in Page Co., IA; Eliza Jane, born Feb 21, 1846, is the wife of John Coder whose home is in Cedar Township, IA; Franklin, born Aug 21, 1847, is living in Cedar Township; Sarah, wife of Joseph Marsden, was born March 17, 1849, and is a resident of Muscatine; Matilda, born Nov 16, 1850, is the wife of Peter Brookhart, and is living in Cedar Township; Harriet, born June 30, 1852, is the wife of Alonzo Epperly, a resident of St. Paul Minn; Mary, born Dec 28, 1853, wedded William Harvey of Cass County IA; Eve, born Sept 30, 1855, married Nicholas Herrick, a resident farmer of Cedar Township; John, born Jan 8, 1858, is living on his father's farm; William H., born Sept 23, 1862, died May 8, 1864. For over 40 years, Mr. and Mrs. Fry have been members of the Methodist Episcopal Church, and have lived to see their children become useful and honored members of society, all of them being members of the church with the exception of one. Mr. Fry casts his ballot with the Republican party, and is one of the leading citizens of the county, with whose history he has been identified for 34 years.

He came to 76 Twp. with his wife by covered wagon from Lancaster PA in 1855 and settled on a farm now owned by their g/daughter, Mabel Wells. Mrs. Wells recalls stories of her g/father, who after working from dawn til dark in the fields, would place a lamp in the window to shine outside where he made candles to help light the home. He is buried in the Letts IA cemetery.
