    Neal Fries (Frize){b.1780} Kilmacrennan married Mary O'Neill. Son Neal {b. 1810} married Elizabeth Houston of Kilmacrennan. Their children: Hugh {1835}, John {b.1841},Neil {b.1846},Mary {b. unknown),Edward {1853}. John and Neil were blacksmiths and never married to my knowledge. I have no information on Mary. Edward married Mary unknown and was a grocer. Their children are: Lizzie, John, Edward, Mary and Rose. This family still resides in Kilmacrennan to my knowledge. My Great-great Grandfather Hugh Fries married Charlotte McBride of Ballyshannon. They had one child Michael Hugh Fries. Michael married Mary Murray of Drumbrick. They had eight children: (My grandmother)Charlotte, Hugh, Rose, Margaret, Mary Ann, Michael, Patrick and William. Charlotte emigrated to the US and settled in Philadelphia where she married Peter Gallagher of Termon. They had 11 children: Peter, Mary Elizabeth, Michael, Ann, James, Jackie, Charlotte, Rose Mary, Katherine, Francis,and Rita. My Mother Rose married John O'Donnell from Drifton, PA.
