									Frisbie-Frisbee Family Association of America. Inc. Collection, 1713-2006 Genealogical Collections State Archives Record Group No. 074 Prepared by Virginia Banerjee with financial support from the Frisbie-Frisbee Family Association of America, Inc.
History and Biography

The Frisbie-Frisbee Family Association of America, Inc. (FFFAA) was established in 1950. Under the leadership of Olin E. Frisbee, author of one of the early compiled genealogies of the family, FFFAA brought together individuals from across the United States. The Association held annual reunions, published a quarterly bulletin, collected materials related to the family, and supported activities to extend knowledge about the family. Principal attention focused on Edward Frisbie (c.1621-1690) of Branford, Connecticut and his descendants. Over time, thousands of individuals, related or not, but with some Frisbie connection, were identified and recorded. There are many and varied ways to spell this surname although Frisbie and Frisbee are the most common. Other spelling found in the records includes Frisby, Frisbye and Frisbey. Spelling was not always standardized, thus records pertaining to the same individual may have the surname spelled differently from record to record. Persons with some Frisbie connection are spread throughout the United States and several foreign countries. Nora G. Frisbie (1904-2002), a direct descendant of Edward of Branford, had been interested in family history for many years when she learned of FFFAA in 1960. Thus began a relationship that lasted throughout her long life. With the death of Olin Frisbee in 1965, she became president of FFFAA, a position she held until 1978. She served as the editor of the Bulletin for many years and the official FFFAA historian and genealogist from 1983 until her death. She published supplements to earlier compiled genealogies, several new volumes, the first in 1984, and many articles about Edward of Branford, his descendants and ancestors, as well as other Frisbies. She also edited and annotated compiled genealogies of various components of the extended Frisbie clan done by other authors. Ms. Frisbie was a highly motivated family historian, an energetic seeker of information. She corresponded with a host of people and traveled widely, including places in England where the earliest ancestors are thought to have originated. She searched repositories in many states and hired researchers to search where she could not travel. She gathered family data from anyone who would share what they knew of their branch into numerous folders and binders. A phenomenal memory earned her a reputation of being able to place individuals into context. She relied heavily on family informants and writers who went before her and did not always fully document the information collected. She often stated an awareness of the importance of documenting sources of information but felt unable to do so due to the scope of her work, leaving to others the task of determining the accuracy of her data and conclusions. She collected much anecdotal material, which appeared frequently in the FFFAA Bulletin. Ms. Frisbie wrote and published extensively. She manually indexed many volumes of the Bulletin, scrapbooks and other documents, an extremely complex and timeconsuming process without the technology available today. Nora Frisbie continued to gather data and plan revisions to her first new volume, Edward Frisbie of Branford and His Descendants-The First Eight Generations- Volume I, but when she died her work to revise this volume remained unfinished. In 2006, FFFAA reissued Volume I, unchanged except for a new introduction and produced this finding aid. The work required was supported financially by FFFAA. Used together, these two publications will permit future researchers to delve into the vast materials collected by

the author and FFFAA over many years. The clues to primary resources and the conclusions and lineages so painstakingly assembled by Nora Frisbie offer researchers a goldmine of opportunity.

Scope and Content

The collection consists primarily of the private papers and objects collected by Nora G. Frisbie together with selected FFFAA papers and objects. These include research notes, published and unpublished materials, genealogy records, newspaper clippings, photographs, drawings, ledgers, books, and correspondence collected by Ms. Frisbie. She assembled many scrapbooks of clippings and photographs. Although no indication exists that she ever engaged a clipping service to gather these items, her reputation as a collector of family information resulted in hundreds of articles being sent to her. The collection relates primarily to Edward Frisbie of Branford, Connecticut, his descendants, persons who may have a connection to him, and related families. The collection also contains a great deal of material concerning persons whose relationship to Edward, Ms. Frisbie had not yet determined. The collection is housed in 110 boxes plus a few unboxed large items, comprising 75 cubic feet. Ms. Frisbie used and modified a numbering system originally created by earlier writers of compiled Frisbie genealogies. The numbers indicate the generation removed from Edward of Branford. Each individual was also assigned a unique number, known in the family as “Frisbie numbers.” Individuals whom she connected to the lineage of Edward eventually reached nearly 10,000 in the thirteenth generation. Many persons with Frisbie connections but with no firm link to Edward of Branford came to Nora Frisbie’s attention. These “unclassified” persons were numbered 12,000 to 14,000. If and when she connected them to Edward’s lineage, they were assigned a Frisbie number in lieu of their unclassified number. In her last years, new persons who came to her attention were referred to as “latecomers.” Their numbers start with 30,000. At the end of her life, there were some persons known to her to whom she had not yet assigned numbers. Ms. Frisbie compiled many articles or manuscripts about family groups, those of a geographic area or persons who had something in common, e.g. military service or profession. She referred to these as “state studies.” While many of these do not appear to have been formally published, she usually reproduced a few copies and distributed them to individuals or repositories that had some relevance. The distribution list is often included. Depending on the date of preparation, these texts may contain updated information to that originally published in Volume 1 of Edward Frisbie of Branford and her subsequent books. Understanding Ms. Frisbie’s habits will greatly assist the researcher in using the collection. In a vast number of instances, she has handwritten the person’s Frisbie number on clippings, photographs, letters and items of all sorts. When she could not identify an individual, she often noted the fact. She created an everyname index for many scrapbooks, booklets, and volumes of the FFFAA Bulletin. Where they exist, they are noted. One habit of Ms. Frisbie makes use of much of her material difficult. She consistently used the obverse side of paper and did not always cross out the text that was irrelevant to the new use. This practice sometimes makes it difficult to know what she intended. FFFFA materials consist principally of those in the possession of Ms. Frisbie and they do not constitute complete Association files. Included, however, are some organization and business records and materials related to the FFFAA membership. Albums of reunion photographs and clippings and the quarterly Bulletin are nearly complete. The collection also holds books and published materials by and about Frisbies, including compiled genealogies by other authors and a leather-bound manuscript of the earliest known compiled genealogy; The Frisbee-Frisbie Genealogy by Edward S. Frisbee published in 1926. A small quantity of notes and correspondence predate Nora Frisbie’s involvement with the family association.


State Archives Record Group No.074 Frisbie-Frisbee Family Association Collection

Ms. Frisbie and FFFAA assembled objects and photographs, many having been bequeathed by widespread family members. Included are paintings, textiles, a business sign, military items, a cast iron bank, Frisbie pie tins and toy Frisbees, and several pair of old spectacles. Some very old tintypes and daguerreotypes date from nearly the beginning of such imaging technology, in addition to many more modern images. Diaries, commonplace books, scrapbooks and albums assembled by persons other than Nora Frisbie add variety to the collection. Several themes persist throughout the collection, including businesses with a Frisbie connection such as the J. & E. Stevens Company of Cromwell, Connecticut that manufactured cast iron banks in the 19th century. The collection contains magazine articles and newspapers clippings about the Frisbie Pie Company of Bridgeport, Connecticut and the toy Frisbee that was designed after the original pie tins. Correspondence and photographs related to Hearthstone, the oldest Frisbie house in America, are included as well as materials concerning to other Frisbie-related sites. There are photographs, correspondence, and historical materials related to the Frisby-on-the-Wreake, Leiscester, England and several other foreign sites believed to have early family connections. Ms. Frisbie also collected items and data regarding anything Frisbie such as clippings, printed materials, memorabilia, whether with a genealogy value or not. Many of these items are scattered in Series 7, 8, and 10. A small collection of personal notes, photographs, booklets, awards and mementos belonging to Ms. Frisbie include her high school diploma, materials related to her service in the WAAC in World War II, and her involvement with the National Daughters of the American Revolution (NDAR).

Nora Frisbie, age 92.1 Series 1, Nora G. Frisbie Papers, 1966-2006 Boxes 1- 2 contain Nora Frisbie’s correspondence arranged chronologically. Many items consist of replies to genealogical queries. Often neither the query nor her final reply is included. A hand-written (perhaps draft) reply appears to have served as her file copy. Boxes 3-17 hold books and articles published by Nora Frisbie as well as unpublished materials. There are both draft and bound copies of Volume I of Edward Frisbie of Branford and his Descendants, the First Eight Generations, 1984. A published copy is also found in the collection of the Connecticut State Library. Within these boxes of writings, Boxes 6-7 hold her notes for the revisions to Volume I. Careful examination of these hundreds of pages reveal that it was often difficult to determine what she intended, thus they were not integrated into the 2006 reprint issued by FFFAA, but rather left to future researchers to analyze and interpret. Bound copies of Volumes II and III are in Box 11. A bound copy of the 2006 reprint of Volume I has been added to the collection and is also in Box 11. Notes and typescript for revisions of Volume II and III also represent unfinished work of the author. The series also contains Nora’s supplements to Olin Frisbie’s, Frisbie-Frisbie-Frisby Family Genealogy (1964). Boxes 12-17 hold shorter works, often with a theme or subject focus, like Flying Frisbies (Box 13) and “Frisbies of the Wyoming Valley, Pennsylvania.” The author’s writings, both with and without a Frisbie connection, represent a mixture of works in progress and finished pieces. In some instances, it is clear where these pieces were submitted but whether they were finally published cannot always be determined. There are materials edited and annotated by Nora Frisbie, consisting of compiled genealogies of others to which she has added data and corrections/comments. Whether this work was undertaken at the request of the original author or of Ms. Frisbie’s own volition is often unclear. The articles and pamphlets are arranged alphabetically by person or subject and not by title. Box 18 holds genealogy notes ranging from information about the churches of Branford, Connecticut to a place index to the 1926 genealogy compiled by Edward S. Frisbee. Boxes 19-20 include many folders of genealogy notes, most with no apparent organization. They contain many charts, some correspondence, photocopies of source materials, a few photographs, maps and myriad others items. Box 21 contains the author’s subject files, covering her interests not only in genealogy of the Frisbies but also in general history, manufacturing, ship-building, and matters of the sea. Personal papers in Box 22 include an array of correspondence, awards, certificates, personal greeting cards, and photographs unrelated to her genealogy work. Box 23 is restricted because it contains material on living persons. Series 2, Family Files, 1960-2002 Family Files consist of Ms. Frisbie’s notes and collected information, as well as some photographs, correspondence, clippings, NDAR materials, lineages submitted to Ms. Frisbie by others, and some small compiled genealogies. Most of the data in these files is derivative, although some facsimiles of original records are included. There is also text and in some instances the materials appear to be draft for planned publication. Material pertaining to an individual may be merely a sheet or two while for others much larger files exist. These appear to be her “working files” from which she could retrieve data concerning individuals. In some instances, her plan for a finished product is fairly apparent, while in other instances the material appears quite random. It is unclear how these files differed from the “genealogy notes” in Box 18 except that they were maintained separately by Ms. Frisbie. Box 22, folder 9, Clarmont Courier, 13 September 1996. Unfortunately, the collection does not contain any good photographs of Nora Frisbie.


State Archives Record Group No.074 Frisbie-Frisbee Family Association Collection

Boxes 24-29 and part of Box 30, referred to by Ms. Frisbie as Frisbies A-Z, consist of folders in alphabetical order, of individual Frisbies or several Frisbies whose given name begins with a particular letter. “Letter” General precedes named Frisbies. These files vary in size from a few sheets to many. The contents may contain notes, photographs, copies of source materials, clippings, and related materials. Part of Box 30 through part of Box 33 holds folders pertaining to individuals with surnames other than Frisbie and referred to as non-Frisbies. The contents vary and may contain notes, photographs, copies of source materials, clippings and related materials. Material in Boxes 34-37 concerns unclassified Frisbies. An alphabetical list (38 folders) and the page layout for a book about these persons are included. Boxes 3840 consist of state files dealing with a single state, portion thereof, or a geographic area. Series 3, Genealogy Records, 1646 (photocopy)-2002 Genealogy Records (Boxes 41-42) consists principally of photocopies and indices of federal population censuses as well as typed reference materials and lists. The military records consist primarily of those from the National Archives Records Administration (NARA). Photocopies of early Branford records that date back to 1646 form the earliest items, albeit facsimile, in the collection. Series 4, Frisbie-Frisbee Family Association Records, 1950-2001 This series does not contain a complete set of FFFAA records, although the records are voluminous. The Association published a quarterly Bulletin from its inception. For many of those years, Nora Frisbie was both its editor and principal writer. The issues contain hundreds of stories and brief pieces about individual Frisbies and families detailing their lives and times. Frequently these stories extended information about an individual or family contained in Ms. Frisbie’s books. Although the business records of FFFAA within the collection are scanty, many issues of the Bulletin include annual and financial reports. Boxes 43-46 consist of the Bulletin for years from 1950 to 2001. In general, a set of the Bulletin for each year exists together with a folder of index and corrections. The author also produced an every name index covering the years 1950 through 1974. Each Bulletin contains numerous articles, family data, news items, and often FFFAA business information. Box 47 holds information about annual reunions. No complete list of where each reunion was held has been found and there is some confusion and inconsistence in the records. Included are notes, attendance lists, memorabilia, and some photographs. The materials in these folders may have been the extras after the scrapbooks of a reunion were assembled Boxes 48-55 house scrapbooks of individual reunions. Some consist entirely of photographs, while others also include clippings and memorabilia. Most photographs are identified. Boxes 56-60 contain membership records including a list of charter members and some book orders. There are lists by categories including by generation of descent from Edward of Branford and a list of persons willing to hold office. Most lists are not dated and their purpose is often unclear. Several sets of small slips of paper with names and occasional addresses may have been a sorting mechanism for creating indices which Ms. Frisbie accomplished manually. Box 61 holds of a small quantity of non-Nora Frisbie FFFAA correspondence. Included is material related to aborted plans to create a foundation and establish a Frisbie research center in Red Cloud, Nebraska. Considerable conflict regarding motivations and opinions about this matter are reflected in the extant materials. Articles in the Bulletin during the period when a foundation was being considered also reflect the differences of opinions. Some of the exchanges were acrimonious. A few organizational records, including the FFFAA constitution and a sketch for the corporate seal are also found in this box.

Series 5, Photographs, c. 1865-2001 Boxes 62-65 contain family photograph albums and individual likenesses, some of which are framed and many identified. A number of photographs were evidently bequeathed to FFFAA by descendants, although provenance is generally not clear. Ms. Frisbie used many of these images to illustrate her writings. It is apparent from her notes that she had negatives and copies made of many of the images, a number of which are included in Box 65. Illustration 2

Girls at play. n.d.2 Series 6, Writings of Others, 1828-2005 Several complied genealogies of the family that deal with the earliest generations pre-date the work of Nora Frisbie. The collection contains copies of the known ones in Boxes 66-67. A leather bound manuscript version of the 1926 Frisbee-Frisbie Family Genealogy by Edward S. Frisbee, is included as well as the published version. The manuscript was purchased from an antiquarian book dealer and given to FFFAA. Published copies of the 1964 Frisbee-Frisbie Family Genealogy by Olin E. Frisbie are in this series. Nora Frisbie compiled supplements to several of these volumes before she wrote new volumes. These works by her are found in Series 1.

Over the years, a number of persons wrote books devoted to segments of the Frisbie clan. Several are found in this series. Those that were edited or annotated by Nora Frisbie have been placed in Series 1. Ms. Frisbie also collected items by and about Frisbies that had nothing to do with genealogy per se. Books by persons named Frisbie, not genealogical in nature, are also included in this series. Box 68 contains many small items, among them brief descriptive pieces, hand-crafted pedigree charts, essays and letters, war journals, and weather records. Series 7, Scrapbooks, 1969-2002 Located in Boxes 75-94, the series consists of scrapbooks and albums, principally assembled by Nora Frisbie. Their contents range from mounted photographs and clippings containing vital record data to general information and general news clippings having anything to do with any Frisbie. All but the last four scrapbooks are indexed. Several albums were created by persons other than Ms. Frisbie such as an undated one assembled by Olin Frisbee. Although not specifically related to the family, a scrapbook of clippings, photographs, and other memorabilia concerning the toy known as a “flying saucer” or “Frisbee” follows the history, evolution, and popularity of this item. See Series 10 for examples of some “Frisbees” produced as advertisements for products or businesses with a Frisbie family connection. Series 10 also contains two original tin pie pans believed to be the item from which the concept of the “flying saucer” evolved. Series 8, Related Papers, 1891-2001 Frisbie homes sites and related buildings are included in this series. Buildings with a Frisbie connection other than home sites such as a hospital, factories, and businesses are also represented. Businesses ranged from car manufacturers, clock-makers, mechanical bank manufacturers, and ice companies to motels and gristmills. Several folders in Box 94 deal with Hearthstone in Branford, Connecticut. This is thought to be the oldest Frisbie structure in the United States, although Ms. Frisbie came to the conclusion that it was probably built later than originally believed. Not everyone agreed with her conclusion. Several historical societies including those in Cromwell, Connecticut and Delhi, New York are housed in buildings that belonged to Frisbies. Related Papers contains materials pertaining to these organizations. The Frisbies in America are believed to have originated from Frisby-on-the-Wreake and Clerkenwell in England. Ms. Frisbie and others visited these sites and corresponded with persons there, collecting data and objects. Series 9, Old Original Items and Certificates, 1713-1919 Boxes 96-97 consist of certificates, a 1831 Branford school record, a travel journal, and a doctor’s account book. The oldest original item in the collection, a 1713 funeral essay, is located in this series. These items are grouped together because of age and fragility. Series 10, Objects, 1836-1976 Boxes 98-106 hold paintings together with business and personal items with a Frisbie connection. A gavel said to have been made from a Hearthstone timber, several Frisbie Pie Company pie tins, believed to be the object is from which the Frisbee (toy flying saucer) evolved, and a late nineteenth century cast metal Tammany Bank probably designed by Russell Frisbie are included. Several large paintings and photographs are not stored in boxes due to their size. Series 11, Microfilm, 1974-1987

Many materials were filmed over a number of years. Most Bulletins together with many books and scrapbooks were filmed. The list of what is on each roll was abstracted from inventories done by others and notes found within the collection. They have not been individually viewed. Illustration 3

In 2001, Nora Frisbie donated most of her papers, files and objects to FFFAA. The Association took on the responsibility to locate a repository for their permanent care. After her death, the rest of her collection was added to the materials already in the possession of FFFAA. Additional items belonging to FFFAA, some of which had been stored at various sites with some connection to the Frisbie family, were added. In 2002, the entire collection was donated to the Connecticut State Archives, a unit of the Connecticut State Library in Hartford.

Related Records

Many FFFAA records remain in the possession of current and former officers of the Association. A substantial collection of Frisbie objects and memorabilia can be found at the Delaware County Historical Society in Delhi, New York. The Society is housed in the home of the late Judge Gideon Frisbie. The library of the New England Historic and Genealogical Society in Boston and the Blackstone Library in Branford, Connecticut hold some related materials that may include writings by Nora Frisbie not duplicated in the FFFAA Collection. Manuscript collections in several repositories include Frisbie materials. The National Union Catalog of Manuscript Collections (Library of Congress) lists more than one hundred entries with some mention of Frisbies (varied spelling). The Bancroft Library, University of California at Berkeley, for example, holds

the General Vallejo papers and photographs which include Frisbie items. See Boxes 33 and 65 for additional related materials. The John B. Frisbie (b. 1832) reminiscences are held in the same repository. The papers of Ichabod Frisbie (1835-1918), United Sates soldier and flour mill operator consisting of correspondence, letters to his wife, and his journal are housed in the Special Collections Department, Woodruff Library, Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. He was born in Southington, Connecticut and later resided in California. See Boxes 12 and 42 for related materials. Much material pertaining to George Frisbie Hoar (1826-1904), politician and United States Representative and later Senator from Massachusetts, can be found in a number of repositories. See Box 31 for associated materials. Several small collections of papers created by Nora G. Frisbie can be found at the Utica Historical Society, Utica , New York and at the New York Historical Association Library in Cooperstown, New York.

Access Note

The collection is available to the public within the rules governing public access. Box 23 contains a single folder of private material pertaining to living persons and is restricted. Illustration 4
