The death of John Marian Fry

John Marian Fry was born to Harvey Fry in McMinn County TN in May 1, 1848. His father and three of his fathers brothers moved to Douglas County MO in the 1950s. James married Nancey Parnell and settled on a farm near the Town of Almartha, Douglas County, MO and started the General store there. My grand father James Ewing Fry was his youngest son born in 1896. James would make a weekly run to Springfield, MO. Along the way he would pick up eggs from the local farmers. On June 16, 1901 he was delivering his eggs to stores in Springfield, MO when a trolley Car spooked his horses. They bolted in front of the Trolley killing James. The impact was so hard one of his horses was shoved 15 feet, through a plate glass window and 10 feet into the store. His body was brought back and buried in the Frye cemetery in Douglas County, MO. This left his wife, Nancey to care for the farm, store and eight children.

Dat/ Walker connection

My Hanna Day Walker was born in about 1830 in Bulls Gap, Hawkins County, TN. She married Thomas Berry. In Lee Valey,Hawkins County, TN there is listed a Hanna Day born 1785 who married a Thomas Berry (Not known kin to the first Thomas) Sense Hanna Day is a very unusual name for the area there has to be a connection betwneen the Hanna Day and Hanna Day Walker. Please help me find the connection.
