    John Henry Friend, Savilla M. Savage and Their Descendants, Book I
    Patrick T. Smith

    John Henry Friend was the son of Cornelius Ward Friend (1752 to 1854),  grandson of John Friend Jr. (1764 to 1849) and great grandson of John Friend Sr. (1728 to Aft 1808). John married Savilla M. Savage, the daughter of Karrenhappuck Friend (and John Robinson Savage), granddaughter of John Friend Jr. and great granddaughter of John Friend Sr. This book attempts to chronicle the lives of John and Savilla, their children and countless descendants through US Census records, family bibles, land deeds, wills, photographs, personal histories, books, obituaries, newspaper articles, military records as well as birth, marriage and death records. Because of the quantity of material, these accounts will be divided into two books. The children were researched sequentially from the oldest to the youngest. Although the children are featured in one book, they will be briefly outlined in the corresponding book. The information of John Henry Friend and Savilla M. Savage, as well as, a brief outline of the Friend Family back to Nils Larsson Friend (Frande) will be presented at the beginning of all the books. If a child is featured in one book, they will be briefly outlined in the corresponding book. Book I will focus on the families of Sarah Jane Friend, Alpheus Cornelius Friend and Mary Jeanette Friend, while Book II will center on William Henry Harrison Friend, Rachael Friend, Melvey G. Friend, Elsie Clarissa Friend, Della Minnie Friend, Martha Friend, Ulysses Grant Friend, Sherman Friend, Laura B. Friend (and an unknown child). Book I contains 534 pages, is fully indexed and presented in an outline format.
