Froht, Froot, Froth, Liberia

I have found documentation giving the pob for Peter Froht as Liberia.
Peter was born in 1894, and was a fireman/merchant marine located in New Jersey by 1920. I know nothing about research in Africa (even in the best of times)--- how do I begin to track Froht's family--who should have been in Liberia in the early 20th century?

Thanks,
Shirley

=====================================================
Just learned that my friend's grandfather was born in Liberia 1894. He was in this country (merchant seaman) by 1917. We have no knowledge of his parents or other family---though his World War I Draft Registration relates he had a brother then living in Cardiff. What resources/tools are available for research in Liberia? He was a non-documented alien in 1918---but he may have become "legal" in later years. We will, of course, search for immigration records--that may reveal something? The last name of interest to us is Froht, often seen as Froth or Froot. We do not know if that was a birth or assumed last name. His friend, another Liberian was called Jack Savage---they apparently immigrated together, and married sisters here.
Any insight appreciated ?shirley
