In 1919, Herman Edward’s failing hardware business transplanted Frye and family from their comfortable life in Sherbrooke to a somewhat more penurious existence in Moncton, New Brunswick. In this predominantly railroad town, Herman worked as a travelling salesman and contractor for hardware and manufacturing equipment.
A new headstone was installed at Elmwood Cemetery in September.
“Frye” is listed at the top of the stone, adjacent to the name “Howard”. Frye’s mother, Cassie, and her sister, Mary Gertrude Howard, were both buried at the cemetery. A former Alberta school teacher, Howard died in 1931 at the age of 56.
The names of other deceased members of the Frye family listed below Cassie Frye on the headstone include Herman Edward Frye, Northrop’s father. He died in 1959 at the age of 89 and was buried in Chicago. Also listed is Northrop’s brother, Eratus Howard Frye, who was killed in action at Amiens, France in 1918 during the First World War. He was 19. He is buried in the Manitoba Cemetery at Caix, France. Northrop’s sister, Vera Victoria Frye, died in 1966 at the age of 65 and was cremated in Los Angeles.
