EDWARD C FREDERICK, proprietor of a bowling alley in Lawrenceburg, Ind., is a son of Pius and Agnes (Heckinger) Frederick. The father was born in Germany, came to America when a young man and lived and died in Dearborn county Ind. Edward C. Frederick was born May 9, 1857, in Dearborn county, was educated in the common schools, and at the age of twenty-four years embarked in his present business. He started it with $20 and now owns property to the amount of $20,000. He was married to Mary Pelgen, a daughter of Peter Pelgen, and they have three children: Charles E., Edna M. and Raymond. He and his wife and children are members of St. Lawrence`s church, and are liberal in their contributions to its support, and for this church his brother made the brick, and his father, Pius Frederick, did the construction work. Mr. Frederick has the finest establishment of the kind in the city, although he started in as a poor man. He owns some very valuable property and is one of the few men who have made a success of this business. The brother of Mr. Frederick died in 1879, in Lawrenceburg. A son, Charles E., of Mr. Frederick, when aged four years, had a growth on his windpipe that was cured, there being an average of only one cure in 100,000. He was treated by Dr. Sadler, of Cincinnati, Ohio.
