Joseph C. Frederick, son of Conrad Frederick and Ann Brown, was born about 1808 in Pennsylvania. According to the 1850 Ohio Federal Census, Joseph was a cooper following in a Frederick family tradition. His grandfather and uncle were both coopers, however, I am unsure whether his father, Conrad Frederick, was also involved in the trade. As teenagers, Joseph’s twin sons, Albert and Alfred, helped with the coopering business. On August 31, 1834 in Columbiana County, Ohio Joseph married Mary Betz, born August 8, 1811 in Columbiana County, Ohio daughter of Christian Betz and Christina Kieffer of Salem Township, Columbiana County, Ohio.
Joseph and Mary lived in or near Franklin Square, Salem Township, Columbiana County, Ohio and raised nine children. Joseph C. Frederick died on Jun 4, 1853 at the age of forty-five and was buried in the Lutheran Cemetery, Washingtonville, Ohio with his parents and grandparents.
Mary Frederick continued to live in Franklin Square with a number of her younger children. Later in life, she was a member of her daughter, Julietta Frederick Sheets’, household in Centre Township, Columbiana County, Ohio. Mary died at the age of eighty-seven on September 24, 1898 in Columbiana County, Ohio. She is buried in the Township Cemetery, Franklin Square, Salem Township, Columbiana County, Ohio. The tombstone is inside an enclosed area and there looks to be someone buried beside Mary in an unmarked grave. Also buried in the area is T.A. Martin. I have no idea if this person is related to the Frederick family. A number of the Frederick children died during their childhood and could possibly be buried with Mary.
