Henry Fritz is said to have been born in 1793 in Steuben. Earliest Census he shows up on is 1820 in Steuben.  At some point he married Mary Polly Clark and possibly Mary Clymer.  He had the following children William Fritz, Mariam Handy Parritt (Fritz), Sarah Stevens Fritz, John Fritz, Jesse P. Fritz Sr, and Pillsbury Stevens Fritz.

Any assistance in locating birth date, parents names, cemetery would be wonderful.  Taylor Fritz Worthington-Gilchrist

The Fritz family record in Steuben town records gives the names and birth dates of the children, but no information on the father. The same records show that Henry Fritz and Polly Clark were married by Philo Lewis, Esq., probably in 1821. The death records of children Mariam and William say that Henry was born in Germany.

I was not able to find references to Henry in Washington County land, probate or naturalization records.

Hi everyone,

Chris, Thanks for the additional information on Henry Fritz.  I have spent sooo much time working on Henry it's almost like he just appeared out of no where!
