Hi Ralph,
     My name is Roberta Laird Gdowik and I am the great-granddaughter of John Frisbie. I had some photos and his pilots licence but it got burned in a fire. I will continue to look for more info and send it on to you.
      I do know John was inducted into the Aviation Hall of Fame sometime in the mid 60's?, in Hammondton, N.Y. My son Jonathan Gdowik works for the FAA in Silver Spring, MD. and sent these articles to me. I believe John Frisbie was the 23rd. or 24th. licensed pilot in the U.S. He also flew hot air balloons in Mew Mexico. No one else is alive to ask but I will investigate more. Hope this is interesting for you.
