Although Fred himself was the informant on for his marriage license, the date and place of birth given do not agree with any other records I have found for him. According to the license he was born 20 July 1910 at Moundsville, Marshall County, West Virginia. It's a mystery to me why he might have supplied this incorrect info.5

On 8 March 1943 in Marshall County, West Virginia, Fredrick applied for a marriage license with Alma K. Kuhn, daughter of Adam E. Kuhn and Hattie May Clark. The authorization to marry was signed 11 March 1943 by J. Randall Crow, Clerk of the County Court.5 Park T. Rushford, a Minister in the Baptist Church, certified that he united Fred and Alma in marriage on 11 March 1943 at Moundsville, Marshall County, West Virginia.5

Fred died at age 80 on 27 May 1990.1
