of Pennsylvania and Columbiana County, Ohio

Conrad (Conrod/Cunrad) Frederick, son of Nicholas and Catherine Frederick, was born in Pennsylvania about 1778. The earliest record for Conrad is a listing in Lycoming County, Pennsylvania as a taxpayer in 1796. Conrad married Ann Brown, who was born between 1780-1790, in Pennsylvania. One account lists Ann as a "native of Ireland." Perhaps her parents were born there. One child, Joseph C. Frederick, lists himself as having been born in Pennsylvania. Conrad was a farmer, but it is not known if he, like his father, brother and son, Joseph C., was a cooper by trade.

In “The History of Columbiana County, Ohio” by Horace Mack, on page 235, it mentions, “Conrad Frederick purchased a part of the north half (of Salem Township) which descended to his son Joseph (Joseph C. Frederick), who sold to Michael Frederick, his cousin.” This land eventually became the town of ashingtonville, Ohio. Conrad is part of the 1800-1810 Ohio Tax List as having property in Columbiana County, Ohio in 1810, although no township is mentioned. In 1820 he is enumerated in Salem Township, Columbiana County, Ohio as a person engaged in agriculture. His family consists of three boys and four girls. Conrad’s final census report was in 1830 in Salem Township, Columbiana County, Ohio. All seven children are still living at home.

Conrad died in 1831 in Columbiana County, Ohio. His will is part of the Columbiana County record. It appears that Ann Brown Frederick died sometime after the 1840 Ohio Census enumeration as she has a record in Washingtonville, Salem Township, Columbiana County, Ohio. Family records indicate that Conrad and Ann Brown Frederick are buried in the Lutheran Cemetery in Washingtonville, Ohio.
