A couple of newspaper articles about a lost Frazier--maybe spelled Frasier--he must belong to some Frazier/Frasier family somewhere, some mother, father, or sibling always wondered, but never knew what happened to him. The first article goes into lengthy, gory detail as was the fashion in journalism back then. I'm not a Frasier family researcher, but if you are interested, post a message for more info.
