From Fryeburg we hear, that on the 19th of December last, the wife of Deacon Simon Frye of that town was safely delivered of twin Sons, and was baptized Lord's-Day se'nnight after, by the Names of JOHN HANCOCK & GEORGE WASHINGTON;—it is remarkable that this is the second pair of twins Mrs. Frye has had in a little more than two years, all Sons, and all alive and well.Simon Frye was the nephew of Fryeburg founder Joseph Frye. He was a Justice of the Court of Common Pleas in York County, and Chief Justice of that court in Oxford County. His wife was Hannah Johnson, whom he married Dec. 9, 1762, in Andover, Mass. [Andover VR, 2:144]. Hannah died July 30, 1815, in Fryeburg, Simon on Oct 1, 1822, and both were buried in Menotomy Yard.
