Frey's Company

During the American Revolution, Bernard Frey was the captain of Frey's Company. His family was from Switzerland and had emigrated to the colony of New York in 1689. He was from the Mohawk River valley and first served with the Indian Department. He was present at the Battle of Oriskany in 1777. He was commissioned Captain in Butler's Rangers on October 2, 1780. After the war, Frey settled in Upper Canada, having received a grant of 3000 acres in Whitby. He died in 1814 at Newark (Niagara-on-the-Lake), killed by an American cannonball.

The re-created Frey's company has 19 members in Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania and Florida.
