    Note that the middle name Madison is based upon the North Carolina Death Certificate of Mary Frederick Blair (1868-1947), his daughter, and confirmed by the above gravestone photograph.

    The birth date of 9 May 1819 on the gravestone of Radford Jones Frederick (thought to be a brother of James Madison Frederick) creates a problem with the purported 9 May 1819 birth date of Radford Jones Frederick. If they are indeed brothers, one of the birth dates is incorrect.

    The Frederick Family History Omnibus Memorandum explores the history of the Caswell/Person County, North Carolina Frederick family during the 1780-1930 period.

    The Frederick National Heritage Program is a nationwide effort devoted to the Frederick (various spellings) surname.

    The following is from Biographical and Historical Memoirs of Mississippi, Embracing an Authentic and Comprehensive Account of the Chief Events in the History of the State, and a Record of the Lives of Many of the Most Worthy and Illustrious Families and Individuals, in Two Volumes, The Goodspeed Publishing Company, Chicago, Illustrated (1891) at 726-727:

    "Radford J. Fedric, a planter of Tallahatchie County, was born in Person county North Carolina in 1819, and died May 16, 1891. He was the son of John and Lucy (Vaughn) Fedric both natives of the same county, who spent all of their lives there, his father dying there in 1821. The latter was a planter and a son of John Fedric, a native of France, who came to America as a soldier with General Lafayette, and served under him until the close of the struggle, when he returned to France and brought his family to North Carolina, where he became a planter and lived there the balance of his life. But few of his descendants are left in the state. He was a man of fine education and exceptional abilities. Mr. Fedric?s grandfather, Granville Vaughn, lived and died in North Carolina, where he was a planter. Our subject was the third of four children-three sons and a daughter-born to his parents: Ransom M., became a mechanic, and lived and dies in Person County, N.C.; Ellen married, and lived in Guilford County, N.C., our subject was the next in order of birth, James M. enlisted in the Confederate Army in Virginia, and served bravely through the war. Radford Jones Fedric was apprenticed at the age of seven years, and never had an opportunity to attend school except during about six weeks. He learned the carpenter?s trade, which he followed until he moved to Mississippi, where he remained a few years, removing to Alabama in 1839. In 1846 he was married in Pickens County to Emma Turnipseed, daughter of Daniel and Margaret Turnipseed, natives of the Richland district, South Carolina who moved from there to Alabama where they died in 1856 and 1859, respectively."
