Biography :

Before being admitted in the Soldier's Home, he settled in the State of Washington, at Everett, Snohomish County. It's there I find him with his family in the 1889 territory census. F. C. Fryman, 56 y.o., a laborer born Germany with wife Catherine 37 y.o., also born Germany.

Their children were all born in Arkansas: Willie 14, Fred 13, Katie 7, Hannah 4, Charles 3 and Hager (Agnes) 3. In the 1880 census of Arkansas, Caddo township, Clark County, he was a boarding house keeper and stated being born Russia and his wife Kate in Prussia. In the 1870 census of Cheyenne, Laramie county, Wyoming territory, there is a Fritz Freeman 33 y.o. born Prussia and a butcher by trade.

If at three Homes he stated being a laborer, when at the Pacific Branch he stated being a butcher. A Fritz Freeman also enlisted in the US Army on October 17, 1865, a butcher born Russia, but deserted the following January. In the Homes in Milwaukee and Leavenworth in 1895 and 1897 he stated being married. In 1904 at Los Angeles he stated being "m.(Div.)" divorced? and his near relative his daughter Annie. In 1913 at Johnson City (Mountain Branch, Tennessee) a widower, but his wife Catherine as near relative (sic).

In the 1900 census he is registered being born Russia like his parents, with 8 born children but only 6 still living. He was in various Home at various times from 1895 through 1916. He died January 16, 1916 at Leavenworth and his buried in the Home cemetery: section 31 row 7 grave 5270. Five years later, on December 27 1921, an application for pension was deposed by his wife but was later rejected as they were divorced by law.  From all those information, I can only state that his relationship with Belgium was rather very tenuous.
