Can anyone tell me the origins of Freysville? When was it established and who was the founder?

the Area of Freysville, also Frysville, was first settled in 1735 and was named in honor of Conrad Fry an early settler who gave land to for the church in 1771. Its a crossroads and was never incorporated. in 1990there were 3 churches and about 3 dozen houses. Frysville is mentioned on an 1860 map of York

thanks so much! One more question: can you tell me if Conrad Frey was a son of Tobias Frey?

Yes, the Tobias Frey I am looking at was born 1684 in Germany, died 1748 in Freysville, York Co, PA. I think I have my lineage traced to a Conrad Frey, who died in Berks Co in 1760. Some trees list his father as the above mentioned Tobias Frey. The location doesn't seem to work AND if this Tobias' son, Conrad, found Freysville in 1770, it would rule out this Tobias Frey as my Conrad's father.
Thank you so much for your help!
