RE: Margaret McLain Thanks for the reply. I am sorry to hear that your husband continues to be in poor health. It appears that you are correct: the family had a lot of money but then it disappeared. For some reason they had all that land and a mansion, and even about 50 slaves, which apparently was a lot for that time, and then most of them moved away from Rowan County (apparently to Ohio, Tennessee and Kentucky), then they had no money. Who knows what happened to it all. I read where the Frohocks were not well liked in Rowan County because of the amount of money they charged as county clerks for marriage licenses, etc. Perhaps that was part of the reason their descendents left.
RE: Margaret McLain Same for you, Bonnie. We're trying to figure out all the history of the Frohock family. Did you know that there is a Frohock family reunion in Wood River, Illinois on June 6? Specifically for the descendents of Dallas and Luella Frohock, but any Frohock family member is welcome!
I'm going to be in Charlotte for training 3 times in the next couple months. I'm going to try and visit Salisbury in Rowan County, NC, and also hopefully see any documents in Charlotte regarding the founding of the city of Charlotte by John Frohock, a direct ancestor of the Frohocks in Saline/Gallatin County. Please stay in touch!
My family graves Thank you for the work you put into adding John Brashear, Nora Austin White, and Hilda Nixon. I would like for you to transfer them to me so I can take care of them from now on. Thank you Linda
