Aloha! Researching the family lines of these Frazers (& var. of spellings). Prvt. Robert Frazer was the father of Lewis Clark Frazer. Lewis marr. Susanah "Susan" Skinner, dau. of William & Jane (Cornelison) Skinner..my 5th gr.grandparents (direct lineage). Other well known families that are my direct ancestors and tied into this Frazer marriage:
Christopher & Agnes (McCord) Harris, Capt. David & Sarah (Cowen/an) Gass. Both families are listed as verified pioneers at Fort Boonesborough, Capt. David Gass is indicated as being a close and personal friend of the frontiersman Daniel Boone. A Patrick Gass was also involved in the Lewis & Clark Expedition, poss. another relation of Capt. David Gass. Bailey Dent's mother was also a Harris, a dau. of Henry & Ann (Byrd/Bird) Harris. This Henry and prev. mentioned Christopher are of close relation, poss. brothers or uncle & nephew. Annie Eliza Blackwell, a granddaughter of Richard C. & Ann Elizabeth (Dent) Skinner, marr. Marion Francis Frazier, a son of Andrew Jackson & Jennie (Hicks) Frazier, Andrew of OH, Jennie recorded b: IL. These are my 3rd. gr.grandparents (direct lineage). Jennie died days after Marion's birth in Sedalia, Pettis Co., MO. No further info is known on her, not even her burial. Andrew's death cert. records he died in Arrow Rock, Saline Co., MO and is buried in Union cemetery. There is a cemetery named Old Union Cemetery aka Frazer Cemetery located in Arrow Rock, Saline Co., MO. This cemetery was on the William & Ann (Overton) Frazer/Frazier family property, they are buied in this cemetery. Arrow Rock was notable in the trail breaking journeys that opened the West, beginning with the Lewis and Clark Expedition on June 9, 1804. Clark noted Arrow Rock Bluff and the party's experience in his journal. Further research is needed, but these Frazer's are all probably related. I am attempting to connect my direct ancestor Andrew Jackson Frazier of Arrow Rock, Wm. Frazer of Arrow Rock, Lewis Clark Frazer son of Pvt. Robt. Frazer (of the Lewis & Clark Exp.). Interesting also, I as a descendant of the said individuals, was born & raised in an NE OK town named after Sgt. Nathaniel Pryor of the Lewis & Clark Exp. This small town is where Mr. Pryor is buried. My lineage has seemed to follow or be in the same communites of these families and their extended families. Coincidence?? Or am I finally on the right path to putting the puzzle pieces together?

Mahalo!
