Elvis & Roy Orbison related by marriage along the Presley/Frizzell/Frady line-cool & thank you!

+2 votes
Mary Pressley marries William Frizzell.  Their son John Thomas Frizzell and wife Margaret have son Jason Wilburn Frizzell, who with his wife Margaret Gribble have daughter Margaret Elevaline Frizzell who marries Solomon Frady.  Solomon Frady is the son of Henry Randolph Frady who is the brother of Ephraim Frady (father for both is Carl Simon Frady, but different mothers).  Going back down from Ephraim you will eventually get to Claudette Frady Orbison, Roy Orbison,s First wife.  So two 2 Rock n Roll greats have family ties!  (Note—Solomon is the father of John S Frady who married Amanda Messer, who parented Robert Erastus Frady, husband of Florence Ellen Cowan, my grandparents).  Cowan’s also related to the Gribbles to the Frizzells.  This has always been fun and I have long suspected that the Presley in our line was an ancestor of Elvis.  Thank you WikiTree.
