Several ferns emerged during mild March then froze. Will they start over? I see nothing yet!

If temperatures were below freezing, the fronds will freeze, as you found, though they generally can take brief dips in temperatures.
The plants themselves should be ok as they are hardy down to zone 3.

Just allow them some more time to see if they will send up new growth.
