The 1919 New Haven city directory has this:
Fredenberg, John W., employee Railroad, home 150 Rosette

The 1920 New Haven city directory has this:
Fredenberg, Catherine, widow of John W., home 150 Rosette

That address matches the address for the 1920 census listed above with Katherine Fredenberg & daughter Kathleen.

Given the time frame, I think the 1919 death is more likely the John you're looking for.

If he was born in 1868 and in the US as an adult, there wasn't much in the way of wars he likely would have fought in.  He would have been too old for WWI and around age 30 at the time of the Spanish-American War, which didn't have that many casualties.
