Mary, I'm assuming you're either a daughter or granddaughter of Esther Canfield
(Teater) Brassfield. I was born a Frye, a daughter of Alfred ("Fred") and
Margaret (Roberts) Frye. Dad was a brother of Peal Augusta Frye Canfield Teater,
I don't have any official birth or death records (certificates) other than for my dad,
but I do have lots of information I've gleaned over the years. I'll be happy to
send what I have if you'll provide me a mailing address. I also have a wonderful
photograph of the Barrells at their homestead near Montrose, Colorado. Please e-mail me
directly with your mailing address.
I live in Florida but come back to Iowa whenever I can. I'm sure you're aware
that three of Pearl's sisters still live in that area: Nina Tuttle and Faye Halferty
in Chariton; and Caryl Street in Cambria. Two other sisters live on the West Coast:
Velma Parisho in California and Edith Gregory in Washington. These five are the last of
the 15 Frye children.
