FREDET, Peter, author, born in Sebasat, Anvergne, France, in 1801 ; died in Ellicott's Mills, Maryland, in 1856. He received his preparatory education in the College of Clermont, and afterward entered the ecclesiastical seminary of Clermont-Ferrand. After his promotion to the priesthood he joined the Society of St. Sulpice, and was sent as professor to the Sulpitian seminary of Rodez. Here he remained six years, when he embarked for the United States, and arrived in Baltimore in 1831.
